Perhaps without the shock and suspense of subsequent work, this is nevertheless another undoubted masterpiece from the atmospheric film maker, and just as essential.

There are so many rich interpersonal relationships. This is not a romance or a history, but a bout of delicious Gothic psychoanalysis.

It is the finest job of direction accomplished by a master director and may justly be called Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece.

Alfred Hitchcock's first Hollywood film is a sumptuous and suspenseful adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's romantic novel.

Self-consciously prestigious literary filmmaking... more in line with the producer's career than the director's.

It's an elegant production, beautifully photographed and designed like a dream house shrouded in mourning, but it also favors the pictorial over the cinematic and surface over subtext.

While the film offers no overt violence or thrills, it is a model of sustained mystery and eerie suspense.

This time Hitchcock does it all his way, does a splendid job and has a splendid cast to do it with.

A real treat. Captivating from its famous opening lines to its pyrotechnic finale, this is one of Hitchcock's finest -- and that's saying something.

[A] classic female gothic romance, beautifully adapted from Daphne du Maurier's novel, and hauntingly accompanied by Franz Waxman's score.

The meandering storyline, however, ultimately prevents the film from living up to its reputation as one of Hitchcock's best...

Anderson, Sanders, and Florence Bates all reveled in nasty roles; they look delighted sharpening their talons on Fontaine's little brown wren.

Through its first two-thirds it is as perfect a myth of adolescence as any of the Disney films, documenting the childlike, nameless heroine's initiation into the adult mysteries of sex, death, and identity.
