Daphne Du Maurier was one of the most popular English writers of the 20th Century, when middle-brow genre fiction was accorded a higher level of respect in a more broadly literate age. For her services to literature, she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1969, the female equivalent of a knighthood.

Hi Vortexfugue,

Thank you for your poll suggestion.

1. Please read:
FAQ:So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to 35 choices.

2. Think of your poll suggestion as an opportunity to educate people who are unfamiliar with the the works of Daphne Du Maurier. A brief introduction like the following would be very helpful.
Daphne Du Maurier was one of the most popular English writers of the 20th Century, when middle-brow genre fiction was accorded a higher level of respect in a more broadly literate age. For her services to literature, she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1969, the female equivalent of a knighthood.
3. You may also replace in your list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027906617/) the name Daphne Du Maurier with [link=nm0238898]. The will display as Daphne Du Maurier. This will allow users to easily review IMDb's name page on her.

4. I recommend that you emphasize that Daphne Du Maurier is an accomplished screenwriter by refining your question. Please consider changing your question from:
What is your favorite?

To:
Which of these films based on a Daphne Du Maurier screenplay is your favorite?

5. For your poll suggestion to be considered, your list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027906617/) must link back to this thread. Please add this text:

This will be displayed as:
After voting, you may discuss the poll here.

6. You may received comments and suggestion from other poll authors and users. Please consider these suggestions and thoughtfully respond.

7. If you have any questions regarding creating and suggesting polls, please ask them in this thread.

Vortexfugue,

Thanks for updating your list. Please consider Jen's advice below. The question really should be:
Which of these films based on a Daphne du Maurier story is your favorite?

Welcome Vortex.

Since du Maurier didn't write the screenplays for these films I think a more accurate question would be "Which of these films based on a Daphne du Maurier story is your favorite?"

Also, despite how IMDb lists it, her last name has a lower-case D.

Thanks, Jen, I have changed the question and fixed the lower-case D (except for inside the link where I can't).
