When Mrs. Van Hopper begins to put out her cigarette into the cold cream jar, the jar already has a cigarette in it. At the closeup of the jar, the original cigarette is gone. She puts in a cigarette at an odd angle, but when the close up is over, we again see only the original one.
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'".
The opening credits were re-done (with different font) for the 1950's re-release of the movie. It is these credits that have turned up on all telecasts of the film (even as recently as 2013) and all previous video releases. The Criterion release (which is now only available through outlet stores) restores all of the credits to their original form.
