After the discussion yesterday i went searching for the video of the film and watched it last night. Ild forgotton what a good story it was and though the poor special effects irritated me, the acting and storyline make up for it. Sean Connery is excellent and very handsome! Still think Tippi Hedren would make a good Elizabeth!

I've not been on this forum a while. I was only reminded after watching Marnie the other night. I'm a huge Hitchcock fan. I'm working my way though most of them, although I'm giving Frenzy a miss!

So Winston Graham story combined with Hitchock- it seemed to good to be true. It was a really unsettling, but very powerful and enjoyable. I felt really sorry for Marnie, just the acting drew me in. If I saw red on screen I'd tense up, as I knew the big reaction was coming!

Marnie is one of my fave films , i saw it as a teenager and didnt realise it was written by WG. The book is brilliant as well but set in the UK so its odd when the film is based in USA. Sean Connery has never been sexier.........

Listening to ABC CLASSIC FM (Australia) yesterday morning , I was induced into a feeling  of deja vu. The Music playing was passionate, dramatic , and tantalising familiar.
It was the Theme from Marnie, composed by Bernard Herman.
The announcer, upon completion of the piece, told us that that 'concluded the series of Scary music,' or words to that effect, and spoke  at length about the cast ( why G K had turned down the role) , about  Hitchcock & the storyline, and about Bernard Herman, but didnt mention WG! I almost became a caller-in-erer, but resisted. I decided to vent here instead!!!%$#!!$#!# furious.gif

Anyhow it's inspired me to read & view Marnie again., so this w/e I'll be putting on the kettle, turning off the phone, and getting thrilled!

I had the same thought about Elizabeth; the two actresses have some similar facial features, and the way Marnie is wearing her hair off her forehead is similar to Elizabeth's hairdo in Poldark I. 

There are a couple of interesting changes - the little girl living near the mother instead of the older lady living with her.  Then Lil, I don't think that character is in the book? 

They did away with the psychiatrist. 

If Grace Kelly would have taken the part, it would have been more credible.  IMO the only way that Mark and the rest would have insisted that Marnie not pay for her crimes as not anyone else would have, would have been her amazing beautry.  Tippi does not do it - I keep thinking she is plain enough and ugly and that no way would Mark have put up with such a criminal.  Only extreme beauty explains that he "loves" her even after what he knows she did.

Tippi also has a voice annoying enough that no man would be so bestotted that he'd want her to get away with her crimes - this is essentially what Mark does.

I read the book too but so long ago I've forgotten most of it, so been thinking I might watch the film/ DVD....

http://www.amazon.com/Marnie-Diane-Baker/dp/6305839395

What do you make of some of the comments, also pity every one seems to talk about Hitch yet nothing about WG !

And who does this remind you of !! biggrin 

"Mark finds that Marnie's troubles go very deep. Not only is she a thief, but has a horrible fear of being touched by a man, and he forms an obsession of his own. That of trying to cure his lovely but psychologically ill wife. As Marnie herself puts it to him..."You've got a pathological fix on a woman who is not only an admitted criminal, but who screams if you come near her!"...Yup, lots of work to be done here to unlock the sins of the past. And it's done in only a way that Hitch can do it."

Marnie is one of my favourite films , i hadnt realised for a while who had written it! I think Sean Connery is wonderful in it and Tippi Hedren is suitably cold yet beautiful (wouldnt she have made a great Elizabeth????) THe book is even better and i really must read it again.......
