But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

My Cousin Rachel” was previously adapted into a 1952 film by Nunnally Johnson and directed by Henry Koster. Olivia de Havilland starred with Richard Burton, who earned his first of his seven Academy Award acting nominations for his role as Philip Ashley.
