    Well, I finally got around to watching my copy of this tonight.

    My first-ever viewing of this film (of any age). I also had never read the book so this was my first time with the story.

    As others have said, well-acted, superb dramatic lighting and score. Quite a period piece done in a specific period of American films. Very much enjoyed.

    Makes me curious to see a more recent version (maybe the 2011?).

    Mike, my favourite is the 2006 BBC TV adaptation. It's fantastic.

    I love Joan Fontaine and I watched this movie for the first time a couple of days ago. So many actors overplay their roles and she is just a joy to watch and listen to.

    I hadn't read the book either so it made it all the more fun. Definitely a great film that'll be revisiting often enough.
