Happy birthday, Daphne du Maurier.

Suspense master Dame Daphne du Maurier was born today in London in 1907, the daughter of actor Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of author-artist George du Maurier. Virago and New York Review of Books Classics have issued recent editions of her work.

About the image: "Why don't you?". Joan Fontaine as the second Mrs. de Winter and Judith Anderson as Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca (dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1940)
