Inspired by Daphne Du Maurier: List For Week Ending June 11, 2017

Our films this week are inspired by the works of Daphne Du Maurier. Hitchcock’s film adaptations of her work (Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, The Birds) and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now spring immediately to mind, but there are many others. Du Maurier’s short story No Motive was adapted as the Malayalam film Utharam in 1989. There are two adaptations of Rebecca in Hindi- one as a horror film, the other as a Bollywood musical-and one in Turkish. I’ve noted these on the list items for those who are curious.

This is not intended as an all-inclusive list. Reader suggestions are welcome. If you know an addition to this list, please write using the comments below.
