An underrated masterpiece!
When Marnie was first released it was (quite unfairly) dismissed by critics. It has since been come to be known as one of Hitchcock's great films though. Tippi Hedren stars as Marnie. She is a liar and a thief. She has stolen large amounts of money from her employers on various occasions. Things start to change as she begins to work for the dashing Mark Rutland though. He becomes romantically interested in her but not wanting to get close to anybody she decides to steal the money and escape as quickly as she can. However, Mark catches her red handed and he gives her the choice of marrying him or being held accountable for her crimes. She chooses to marry him but he comes to find out that she can't stand to be touched by any man. He realizes that she has a deep seated problem from her past and that he must now help her to confront this. Marnie is a wonderful film and it is very underrated. A lot of people have watched it and it has gone over their heads therefore leading to the underrated status. It is much the same with Tippi Hedren's performance. Even though it is brilliant alot of people cannot see how wonderful it really is. Sean Connery is also very good.

It is really too bad that some people can't see Marnie for the masterpiece that it is. It's really quite pointless to call Marnie a "flawed" film as well. If Marnie is truly watched intelligently you will see that this is not the case. Marnie deserves far more credit than it gets. If you watch it I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.

5 stars / 5 stars

Trivia

Marnie arrives in Philadelphia on Saturday, November 30, 1963 which can be determined by the copy of the Philadelphia Inquirer she is carrying as she exits 30th Street Station. This issue of the Inquirer, which was published four days after filming began on November 26, has the headline "Crash Kills 118" which refers to Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) Flight 831 from Montreal to Toronto, a DC-8-54CF which crashed at 6:33 p.m. on November 29, 1963 about five minutes after take-off from Dorval Airport killing all one hundred eleven passengers and seven crew. The other headline starting "President Picks" refers to the establishment of the Warren Commission by former President Lyndon B. Johnson on November 29 to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22.

Goofs

When Mark and Marnie are at the Rutland's safe, the gun changes size and color between shots.


Alternate Versions

Dialogue in the final scene reveals that Marnie's mother had given up her virginity at 15 to Marnie's father in exchange for a sweater. Just before the film's release the studio had second thoughts about this part, and Alfred Hitchcock agreed to cut the lines. But hundreds of prints had already been made, and rather than incur the cost of reprinting the final reel of each, the studio released them as they were, so there were two versions of the film from the outset.
