Marnie arrives in Philadelphia on Saturday, November 30, 1963 which can be determined by the copy of the Philadelphia Inquirer she is carrying as she exits 30th Street Station. This issue of the Inquirer, which was published four days after filming for the movie began on November 26, has the headline "Crash Kills 118" which refers to Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) Flight 831 from Montreal to Toronto, a DC-8-54CF which crashed at 6:33PM on November 29, 1963 about five minutes after takeoff from Dorval Airport killing all 111 passengers and 7 crew. The other headline starting "President Picks" refers to the establishment of the Warren Commission by President Johnson on November 29 to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy in Dallas one week earlier on November 22.

Robbed! Cleaned out! $9,967! Precisely as I told you over the telephone. And that girl did it. Marion Holland. That's the girl. Marion Holland.
Can you describe her Mr. Strutt?
Certainly I can describe her: five-five, 110 pounds, size 8 dress, blue eyes, black wavy hair, even features, good teeth.
[detectives unable to restrain laughter]
Well what's so damn funny? There's been a grand larceny committed on these premises.

I think this just about proves that Sean Connery is an excellent actor outside Bond. At the time when Marnie was released, it recieved bad reviews. Why is a mystery to me. This film has everything you want in a film, and it also possesses that remarkable interest and captivating nature that you associate with a Hitchcock film. Again, the performance of Tippi Hedren was excellent, despite her ongoing row with Mr Hitchcock. The story is both believable and suspending. Alfred Hitchcock is "The Master of Suspense".
If you are a Hitchcock fan or not, you must watch this. This proves to be one of the best of the Hitchcock Collection.
I award this film 10/10. I love it and so will you.
