A passionate child rolling in the dust with her ugly dog; a girl driving oxen; a woman....Did anything else matter?
Thread updated together with several "Marnie" YouTube episodes - see first post at bottom.

Even the trailier looks good - shall be on my Christmas list ! (sorry did I mention the Ch word too early in the year?!)
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!

Lol !! There's got to be something in there about the future 007 Sean Connery but I can't remember the story well enough !
