"Rebecca" (1940) & "Suspicion"­ (1941): Joan Fontaine in double trouble

If you'd like to have dinner before the first movie, please note that in your RSVP, so we can get a head count. We'll meet at Crepevine (click the name for info), starting at 5:45 PM. Order and pay at the counter. Non-diners, we'll meet you at the theater, around 7:15 PM, IN THE BALCONY.

The Stanford Theatre does not accept credit cards, so come prepared with $7 cash for your ticket.

And now, on with the show!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rebecca (1940) Starts: 7:30 PM, Ends: 9:40 PM

Starring: Joan Fontaine, Laurence Olivier, Judith Anderson, George Sanders
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Plot: A mousy, young woman meets a dashing, haunted widower in the South of France, and is swept off her feet. But her life quickly goes from idyllic to gothic, when they return to his estate in Cornwall, where she must confront the powerful memory of his first wife, and the even more formidable housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers...

And then, Joan's in for even more danger...!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suspicion (1941) Starts: 9:50 PM, Ends: ~11:30 PM

Starring: Joan Fontaine, Cary Grant
Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Plot: A naive, young woman marries a charming gambler, and settles into married life. But when her husband's business partner turns up dead, she begins to suspect her spouse has her name next on his list...

If you want to go for coffee/dessert after the second feature, meet outside the theater.

    I got there at 7:20 - asked the ticket-seller if the Classic Film group was there, and she said they hadn't made themselves known to her. Didn't see anyone standing around, so just went in and saw the movies. Enjoyed both, though thought Rebecca a better film.

    Did Meetup make a change yet again to how the web site works? Our bios are now showing in the space where previously we could type info pertaining to our RSVP (such as dinner, dinner and movie, etc.). Now we have to type it in the Comments section, which means everyone will get it, leading to more junk emails in our inboxes.

      Dave: Yes, that's the only solution. Meetup doesn't let the Organizers control Notifications, only individual members can do that on a per account basis.
