Creepy scene from Rebecca

This is one of the more interesting scenes from Rebecca. While I enjoy Joan's performance very much in Suspicion, I find this particular movie to be more complicated and Joan pulls it off very well as the young innocent looking wife who no one particularly wants around.

I first saw this movie in early 1995 and that was when I became a Joan Fontaine fan.
I couldn't help but to notice that many of her scenes with Mrs. Danvers indicated that she was being "hit on". Hitchcock had a great way of getting past the censors. What is surprising is that even to this day most people haven't picked up on this.
