Joan Fontaine, 96, Star Of Hitchcock's 'Rebecca' And 'Suspicion'
"It was Hitchcock, with his penchant for 'cool blondes, who brought Fontaine to the forefront when he cast her as the second Mrs. de Winter in Rebecca (1940), the director's American debut. Her performance as the new wife of Laurence Olivier in a household haunted by the death of his first wife earned her an Academy Award nomination." The Hollywood Reporter 12/15/13
