My Cousin Rachel

Way back in 1952, novelist Daphne Du Maurier published a mystery called My Cousin Rachel [F DUM]. The best-selling novel was soon made into a movie starring Richard Burton and Olivia de Havilland. Now, 55 years later, the film has been remade and will open on July 14. You'll have plenty of time to read the novel before then!

After her husband's death, Rachel comes to England to stay with Philip Ashley, her husband's nephew, who is ten years her junior. Philip succumbs to her charms, but begins to suspect that his uncle's wife may have had a hand in his death.



Here's the trailer from the 1952 version:



(Trailer production has come a long way!)

I'll look into the availability of the older version in case, after reading the book, you can't wait to see a movie version!
