Based on the Gothic romance novel by Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca is a classic tale of love and hate. Maxim de Winter (Charles Dance) marries a woman (Emilia Fox) half his age, only a year after his first wife, the beautiful and accomplished Rebecca (Lucy Cohu), dies. She finds herself in an aristocratic social world for which her middle class upbringing did not prepare her, and housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Dame Diana Rigg) despises her for taking her darling Rebecca's place. But these are not the only problems to face. —<firstname.lastname@example.org>

To the commentator who mentioned it, the second Mrs. DeWinter had no first name
The second Mrs. DeWinter has no first name, and she was never given one for the film. Caroline DeWinter was the ancestor that the second Mrs. DeWinter dressed as for the costume ball. If this was not mentioned in the film, it should have been. It is mentioned in Alfred Hitchcock's masterful version of the book, by Dame Judith Anderson. Now, in context of the film, it was definitely closer to the book than Hitchcock's version (which you can blame David O. Selznick for the changes in the plot), and there is some very good acting, but it still seems like what it is, and that is a television film. Christopher Gunning provided a very emotional score though, with a heart wrenching theme for cello and orchestra.
