His one saving grace, at least in the novel, is that his accusations against Maxim are [[VillainHasAPoint completely correct]]. The narrator notes that it is Favell's own obnoxious, graceless behaviour that turns the magistrate against him when he presents his case.

* AlasPoorVillain: Despite her fear of and anger towards Mrs. Danvers, the narrator sympathises with her bitter recollection of the night Rebeeca died: Danvers, who had been away for most of the day, feared something was deathly wrong, and after a sleepless night of paranoia and premonition, rushed alone through Manderley's woods in the dead of night to find and help her beloved mistress, but was far too late. As the truth begins to come out, Danvers grows more and more emotional, gradually viewed less as a tyrant and more as a grieving old woman, who will never forgive herself for what she sees as her own failure. [[spoiler:Nor, of course, does she forgive Maxim when she learns the truth...]]

The first signs of trouble in Paradise appear when they arrive at his elegant old country estate, Manderley. The servants have grown too fond of its late mistress and receive their new one coolly. Mrs. Danvers, the current housekeeper and Rebecca's former handmaid, is especially less than thrilled with the prospect of anyone taking Rebecca's place, and has made something of a fetish of keeping her darling's things exactly as she left them -- stationery in the desk, clothes in the cupboards -- all monogrammed with that bold, decisive initial ''R''.

* TheLostLenore: Played with. Rebecca ''seems'' to be this to her widowed husband Maxim, [[spoiler: but it turns out that she was an utterly despicable woman whom he later murdered, and his haunted behavior regarding her death was caused by the strain of having to maintain a facade of devoted mourning and the knowledge that he was unable to be good enough for his innocent young second wife because of this.]] On the other hand, Rebecca ''is'' this trope in lesbian fashion to her onetime nanny and later housekeeper Mrs. Danvers.

However, the ending has already been written [[ForegoneConclusion in the form of the prologue]], which takes place some time later. The prologue is very bleak, but when first reading it one has no idea what causes it.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: Ben, kinda. He really is mentally disabled, but can play it up, but isn't clever enough to say that nobody told him to say nothing.

That was because she was passionately devoted to the ''first'' Mrs de Winter and felt the successor was taking her place. (Mrs Danvers was, as you may presume, a total psycho.) She is not impolite or emotional when she does it, which makes it all the more scary.

A 1938 novel written by Daphne du Maurier (who also wrote ''JamaicaInn'', and the story that became ''Film/TheBirds''). In 1940, Creator/AlfredHitchcock directed the film version, his first American project, which starred Creator/JoanFontaine and Creator/LaurenceOlivier. It won the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] for Best Picture. It was the only Hitchcock film to win Best Picture, and Hitchcock didn't win Best Director--he never did, in fact, and had to settle for a lifetime achievement Oscar late in life. A musical version debuted in Vienna, Austria in 2006.
