Marnie is one of my favourite films but i saw the movie before i read the book and so had nothing to compare it with. I was disapointed when i read the book that they had changed the film location to the USA and so a lot of the english elements of the book were lost. I always liked Tippi Hedren although she wasnt the greatest actress. I always think she would have made a good Elizabeth, blonde, virginal and on a pedestal.

I just finished this. 

A really interesting book.  It was hard to put down. 

Now I want to check the film out of the library.

Marnie must have been really beautiful.  That's the explanation for Mark trying to make excuses for her.  We know she is a thief, with no remorse, and yet we have someone trying to get her off as though she's the victim.

22. Marnie - 1961

"Long, immensely readable character study of a young woman thief.... A crime novel with no violence, considerable suspense, and of great distinction". Spectator

"One of the best half-dozen novelists in the country." Books and Bookmen.

"The superb novel of psychological suspense that became a world famous classic Hitchcock film starring Tippie Hedren and Sean Connery. Marnie seems a charming young woman, efficient, professional but a rebel against society and the law however no one knows her real name or anything about her at all. Now Marnie has walked into a trap. The game is over - or would be - if the man who trapped her hadn't caught himself as well."
