Through various plot elements and filmic techniques in Alfred Hichcock's film Rebecca, the final product is established as a fairytale. This final product, however, mustfirst be reached by Hichcock's use of entwining the “alternative” fairy tale of Rebecca with various other traditional fairy tales in which the viewer is positioned to mock and interpret in a desired fashion. This “fairytale” element is just one of the sub-genres used to emphasize the gothic genre.

These traditional fairytales act as sub-plots throughout the course of the film, acting in a way, as a series of steps, each leading a little closer to the end result and the way the audience is positioned towards the end result. Thefirst step that must be overcome for the plot to mature, and the major characters to mature, is a version of the Cinderella myth. Fontaine is established as a child, a simple girl protected by Mrs. Van Hopper, her ungrateful employer. The audience however, subconsciously associates Fontaine with Cinderella and Mrs. Van Hopper with the evil stepmother. Maxim, her handsome prince, rescues Fontaine, they marry, she receives a name, Mrs. De Winters, exaggerating her solitude and her disability to exist without a man. They the run off back to his castle, Mandeley, and they presumably live happily ever after. This fairy tale is suitable for use in this film, as the intended audience is for housewives in the 1940's who are generalized to wish this life for themselves and freely associate themselves with the Fontaine character. This produces a sympathetic positioning towards the character and the overall effect of the film is much greater if the audience leaves wishing the story, was, in fact, their reality.

This fairytale life is somewhat destroyed in the next scene where Fontaine, the simple child arrives at “her prince's” “castle”. She is once again diminished to a trapped child and two new characters, Rebecca and Mrs. Danv…
