Diva/Mensch pair for Oct 12, 2022

I said last week that I'd be looking at movies year by year but really, I'll mostly be looking at the Academy Awards. That's how I roll.

1940: from Alfred Hitchcock's *Rebecca*:

Diva: Mrs Danvers

Mensch: the second Mrs de Winter

The Joan Fontaine character is such a severe mensch, she doesn't even have a NAME. And Judith Anderson as Mrs Danvers - - one of the greatest performances in the history of the movies.
