DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK

CAST: JOAN FONTAINE, LAURENCE OLIVIER, JUDITH ANDERSON, GEORGE SANDERS

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderlay again…” Hitchcock never won Best Director outright, and he was still a newly-arrived UK import when this gothic thriller, starring Joan Fontaine as a nameless young woman who becomes enamored with a saturnine, aristocratic widower (Olivier, fresh from Wuthering Heights), took Outstanding Production (later “Best Picture”) honors. A marvel of directorial assurance, which turns the screws with poise and panache.
