ITEM#: 10140245In terms of psychological power and innovative visual techniques, MARNIE ranks alongside VERTIGO and PSYCHO as one of Alfred Hitchcock's most exceptional films, though it is less well known than these classics. This thriller, based on a best-selling novel by Wilson Graham, revolves around a pathological liar and compulsive thief (Tippi Hedren) who is befriended by her latest victim, Mark Rutland (Sean Connery). The core of the story concerns a wealthy man who marries a beautiful woman who steals from his business. Despite his sincere love, dashing looks, and wealth, some deep-seated neurosis makes her emotionally inaccessible, causing him to search her past for an explanation. This is Connery's American film debut, and he portrays his character's fascination with Marnie with a conviction that allows the psychological turmoil of the young woman to emerge. Hedren's performance as the deeply conflicted and emotionally scarred woman walks the fine line favored by Hitchcock, balanced between an icy sexuality and emotional fragility. The director wants to show the audience Marnie's world and fears, so he uses a range of innovative visual techniques--including awkward rear projections, flashes of color, and a menacing atmosphere of storms--to convey her troubled state of mind. MARNIE is one of Hitchcock's most underrated and underappreciated films.

This is one of my favorite Alfred Hitchcock pictures. Tippi Hedren is wonderful as the beautiful but disturbed woman who has committed a series of robberies. Athough she is a criminal, you cannot help but like her -- and later, when you begin to realize there is some traumatic event in her past that is the cause of her behavior -- you also feel sympathy for her. Sean Connery is equally great, playing the owner of a company that Hedren has robbed. Connery is the very essence of the "tall, dark, and handsome" hero. He falls for the beautiful thief and is determined to find out why she behaves as she does. This is not a typical Hitchcock film which is usually dealing with murder and mayhem throughout the picture. This movie does have some moments of suspense, especially with the ending, and Hitchcock is brilliant in his storytelling. The romantic relationship between the two lead characters, and the emphasis on how the past has affected Hedren psychologically might make this movie more appealing to women than men, but it is definitely worth watching.Read More
