The first film Alfred Hitchcock made in Hollywood and the only one that won a Best Picture Oscar. Although it won Best Picture, the Best Director Award that year went to John Ford for The Grapes of Wrath (1940).

He had a theory that if you should find one perfect thing, or place or person, you should stick to it. Do you think that's very silly?

When Reginald Denny's character is in the study with Joan Fontaine's character he pulls out a file folder from a file cabinet and it's in the American format for 8.5 x 11 inches rather than the English A4 size. A4 is a bit narrower but longer than the US letter size standard and its paper would not fit the file folder Denny is holding.
The original 1940 credits read "Selznick International presents its picturization of Daphne Du Maurier's 'Rebecca'". The credits on the re-issue version read "The Selznick Studio presents its production of Daphne Du Maurier's 'Rebecca'".
