Marnie 1964

The Movie Marnie (1964), Director Alfred Hitchcock.

Starring Tippi Hedren, whom Hitchcock introduced in The Birds, returns in a particularly demanding role and Sean Connery, makes his American film bow, as the two principal protagonists in this adaptation of Winston Graham’s best-seller.  The complicated story line offers Hedren as a sexy femme who takes office jobs, then absconds with as much cash as she can find in the safe, changing the colour of her tresses and obtaining new employment for similar purposes. The Plot becomes objective when she is recognized by her new employer, book publisher Connery, as the girl who stole $10,000 from a business associate, and rather than turn her in, marries her! That’s merely the beginning, and balance of unnfoldment dwells on husband’s efforts to ferret out the mystery on why she recoils from the touch of any man. “himself included” and why terrors seem to overcome her.

Enjoy the movie.
