Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Condemned as being a disappointing and unworthy Alfred Hitchcock effort at the time of its release, Marnie has since grown in stature; it is still considered a lesser Hitchcock, but a fascinating one. Tippi Hedren plays Marnie, a compulsive thief who cannot stand to be touched by any man. She also goes bonkers over the sight of the color red. Her new boss, Mark Rutland (Sean Connery) is intrigued by Marnie -- to such an extent that he blackmails her into marriage when he stumbles onto her breaking into his safe. Rutland is in his own way as sick as his wife because of his fetishist desire to cohabit with a thief. After innumerable plot twists and turns, Marnie is cured by a facile but mesmerizing flashback sequence involving her ex-hooker mother (Louise Latham). Among the critical carps aimed at Marnie was the complaint that the studio-bound sets -- particularly the waterfront locale where the film ends -- were tacky and artificial; curiously, this seeming carelessness adds to the queasy, off-setting mood that Hitchcock endeavored to sustain. Even when the direction seems to falter, the film is buoyed by the driving musical score of Bernard Herrmann (his last for Hitchcock). Among the supporting actors in Marnie are Mariette Hartley as a secretary and Bruce Dern as a sailor; twelve years later, Dern would star in Hitchcock's final film, Family Plot.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Trivia

  • Sir Alfred Hitchcock was reluctant to use a mechanical horse to film the shots of Marnie riding, but sent a crew member to inspect a mechanical horse owned by Disney that was supposed to be the best in existence. Walt Disney spotted the crew member on the Disney lot and personally offered to let Hitchcock use it, which he did.

Goofs

  • When Marnie and Mr. Rutland are at the Atlantic City Race Course, there are two drinks on the table. Then Mr. Rutland leaves his seat to place a bet. When he comes back, the drinks are still there, but in the next shot, immediately afterward, when they stand up and leave, the drinks have disappeared.

Quotes

    • Marnie Edgar: You don't love me. I'm just something you've caught! You think I'm some sort of animal you've trapped!
    • Mark Rutland: That's right - you are. And I've caught something really wild this time, haven't I? I've tracked you and caught you and by God I'm going to keep you.
