Storyline

Marnie Edgar is a habitual liar and a thief who gets jobs as a secretary and after a few months robs the firms in question, usually of several thousand dollars. When she gets a job at Rutland's, she also catches the eye of the handsome owner, Mark Rutland. He prevents her from stealing and running off, as is her usual pattern, but also forces her to marry him. Their honeymoon is a disaster and she cannot stand to have a man touch her and on their return home, Mark has a private detective look into her past. When he has the details of what happened in her childhood to make her what she is, he arranges a confrontation with her mother realizing that reliving the terrible events that occurred in her childhood and bringing out those repressed memories is the only way to save her.

Great psychological drama
26 June 2000 | by (VA) – See all my reviews

From Alfred Hitchcock, comes a gripping romantic thriller about a female thief/liar(Tippi Hedren) and the wealthy man who loves her (Sean Connery). The duo have great chemistry in their scenes together. As Marnie, Hedren acts convincingly with her complex character. Hitchcock's use of color to symbolize terror are spellbinding! Highly recommend for any Hitchcockian fans!
