Diva / Mensch pair for 1/29/20

I'm ending the Hitchcock tribute with the greatest diva / mensch pair in the Hitchcock canon, Mrs. Danvers and the New Bride (or whatever you want to call her) from *Rebecca.* Both actors are extraordinary in this scene, but Judith Anderson gets the prize as Mrs. Danvers. I don't know of another performance that's both so over the top and yet so restrained. And do you know of another movie where two women are handling a dead woman's underwear?

Diva: Mrs. Danvers

Mensch: The New Bride
