Legendary actress Joan Fontaine, who died last December at 96, was known for her great performances in two Alfred Hitchcock classics, Rebecca and Suspicion, nominated for the Best Actress Oscar in 1940 and 1941 for both films and winning for Suspicion. (The competition that year actually included her sister, Olivia de Havilland.) But only once during her great decade of stardom did Fontaine play a glamorous screen siren—when she played the tempestuous heroine of Daphne du Maurier's Frenchman's Creek. Finally, after years of being unavailable, that film is out on DVD in a glorious Universal Vault addition. It's one of the greatest fantasy films of the 1940s, winning the 1944 Academy Award for its amazing art direction, a lush costume drama of a 17th century English aristocrat and her love affair with a French pirate.
