Ghost Cities Anilbalan: Don’t Look Now

by

Hugh Paxton’s Blog watched Don’t Look Now and it scared the hell out of me! One of the most subtle, frightening and ultimately “AHHHH SHRIEK!” movies ever made. But that was just me. And my wife. And my sister. And everybody else watching! Maybe you will visit Venice without a shudder! But read further on Anilbalan’s Ghost Cities Blog to learn more!

Don’t Look Now

by anilbalan

Although Daphne du Maurier is remembered as one of the finest novelists of the twentieth century, she is in many ways an unlikely success story. Daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier, Daphne was educated at home in London, and then in Paris, before writing her first novel in 1931. Three others followed before Rebecca, in 1938, made her one of the most popular authors of the day (much to her own surprise). Nearly all her fifteen novels have been bestsellers, and several of her works became successful films, notably the version of Rebecca starring Laurence Olivier, and the chilling adaptations of her short stories The Birds and Don’t Look Now. Daphne herself was made a dame in 1969, in recognition of her unique achievement of writing novels that were both popular and literary classics. What merits her mention on this website is that she has been credited with shifting the Gothic mode towards romantic fiction with her novels, which were built on the work of the Bronte sisters and inspired a genre that has flourished ever since.
