maybe the fake look is part of the style

Attractive accountant Marnie (Tippie Hedrin) moves from post to post, gaining enough of the confidence of her employers to rob them of the cash in the office safes. She assumes new identities with fake social security cards and hair dye. The heart of the film is an exploration into why she does this. "Marnie" is a bit of a masterpiece in style and the way it uncovers why she steals from her employers. Set in a set made out to be Baltimore, the film may look fake, which could be intentional just for the purposes of distinctive styling, because at this point in Alfred Hitchcock's career (1964) it would be safe to assume that what you see on the screen must have been what he intended, and, nevertheless, the photography by Robert Burks is some of the best, as is Bernard Hermann's score. This basically turns out to be the master's sleeper classic, mixing a story of sex and criminality, not too unlike what Hitchcock did with Psycho. Attractive women rob their employers in both films, and both masterfully explore the lingering and smouldering sexual hang-ups.

"Did you have a tough childhood, Miss Taylor?!"

MARNIE is a psychological thriller as a kind of imbalance in relations of human nature, the past and the future. The two characters, one is provocative and other is seductive, are engaged in a dangerous game woven of love, passion and madness. It is based on the 1961 novel of the same name by Winston Graham.

Marnie is a a compulsive thief who cannot stand to be touched by any man. Her new boss, Mark, is, in a strange way, fascinated by her behavior, to such an extent that he blackmails her into marriage when he stumbles onto her breaking into his safe. A dangerous and passionate game, based on a dark past and an uncertain future, can begin...

Hitchcock's psycho-physical game, which is full of symbolism, is again very shocking. A lack of love and the impossibility of expressing the same, with constant disguise and deception, bring enough amount of intrigue. A strong sexual desire and frigid wife are kind of bonuses in this story.

What's the problem with this film?

I think, a serious dose of obsession, with the two main characters, which fully corresponds to their mysterious psyche is too sweet, and sticky for a psychological thriller. This is especially felt in acting. Simply, Hitchcock's thematic compactness is lost and psychological game becomes a bit tiresome to watch.

There is of course, "Spellbound", as a kind of warning.

Tippi Hedren as Margaret "Marnie" Edgar is a young woman who constantly suffers from nightmares, afraid of thunder and one color. A kleptomaniac is not aware of causes of her behavior and her fears. So the best. However, a thief becomes prey. Sean Connery as Mark Rutland is a widower, a zoologist and hunter at the same time. He is not a perfect man, regardless of his appearance and "mission". He is a man, who likes challenges in a form of attractive woman with serious psychological problems, who somewhere in her depths cries out for his help. Diane Baker as Lil Mainwaring is Mark's former sister-in-law, who will try to bring a discomfort into a romance, which practically not exist. Louise Latham as Bernice Edgar is a distant cold and mysterious mother. She is a wound that needs to be cleaned.

I will repeat one of my sentence. I have a feeling that I watched pretty good movie where something's wrong.

Underrated gem

This movie is not one of Alfred's hits and it failed in theaters, but it deserves much higher reputation. Acting and directing are exquisite, and story, that begins as crime romance with humorous moments, develops into upsetting drama and holds attention through more than two hours. Only flaw are too obvious fake backgrounds in driving and riding scenes and in front of mother's house, but however stupid they look, those scenes do not diminish greatness of Hitchcock's directing. I recommend this movie to everyone, regardless of genre taste.
