It's not me, I don't know the seller, but someone is selling what looks like a complete print of Rebecca on Ebay right now, so I thought I'd pass it along since those don't come up every day.

I seem to recall this title was part of the ABC Pictures package of releases.
B&W prints were issued full length, colour ones edited to 80 minutes

The funny thing is that my B/W ABC print of THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE was shorn of 15 minutes that woulda easily fit on the 4 reels it came on, and this appears to be seven full reels! ABC didn't offer Rebecca when I was collecting new prints, but they did sell a lot of Selznick produced films, so it sounds likely.

I got one of the prints from Rebecca. It was released by ABC. Not a bad one, but has some copied lines during the whole film. The greyscale is not bad, too, but there are a lot of better ones.

Just remember the time when Home Cinema was not a disc...keep perforated

Went for $200.

Not bad if it's in good shape considering it's 7 x 400 ft., and pretty top-notch Hitchcock.
