Hitchcock’s Marnie tells the story of a grifter named Marnie Edgar(Tippi Hedren). A thief with many aliases who specializes in getting jobs as a secretary and ripping off the firms after a few months. One such job leads Marnie to Mark Rutland,(Sean Connery) the heir to the firm Marnie plans to rob. But Mark is wise to Marnie’s game, being in business with one of the victims of Marnie’s robberies. He studies her, takes her on dates, and is quickly smitten. There is more to Marnie than an icy con-woman. She is frightened and breaks out into cold sweats during thunderstorms. And even more terrified of the color red. I was intrigued throughout the entire running time of Marnie, but Hitchcock resolves everything a little too neatly for me. The performances are all adequate but not overly impressive. Bernard Hermann delivers another brilliant score and Hitchcock employs many interesting visual techniques throughout. I would place Marnie firmly in the second tier of Hitchcocks work alongside other good films like The 39 Steps and Rebecca. It just misses being in the ranks of Psycho, Strangers on a Train and Vertigo.
