"Nervous First Date" from Rebecca

1940. Joan Fontaine as the Second Mrs. de Winter enters the restaurant in the hotel when she accidentally spills the potted centerpiece and apologizes to Alphonse Martell as the Hotel Headwaiter, just as Laurence Olivier as 'Maxim' de Winter comes over, invites her to his table, and instructs William H. O'Brien as Hotel Waiter to send over the menus over there. Maxim then invites the Second Mrs. de Winter out, and she draws his profile, and talks about the seasonal differences between the Cote d'Azur and England in the rainy months. When she mentions drowning, Maxim walks away from her, and offers that they go back, much to her concern.
