In reply to:

In "Rebecca" with Joan Fontaine, the housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, sets up the new wife for humiliation by having her copy a portrait of 1st wife Rebecca's costume for a ball. The costume is a perfect copy, so when she poses at the top of the stairs she DOES look like the first wife. The husband, Maxim, played by Laurence Olivier has a fit of anger that she would do such a "stupid" thing. That could be your confusion.

There is another famous movie "Laura" with Gene Tierney that has a portrait as a central theme, as well, but it is also a mystery movie.
