Trivia:
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.See more »

Continuity: When Marnie and Mr. Rutland are at the Atlantic City Race Course, there are two drinks on the table. Then Mr. Rutland leaves his seat to place a bet. When he comes back, the drinks are still there, but in the next shot, immediately afterward, when they stand up and leave, the drinks have disappeared.See more »

Sidney Strutt: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.
First Detective:Can you describe her Mr. Strutt?
Sidney Strutt:Certainly I can describe her: five-five, 110 pounds, size 8 dress, blue eyes, black wavy hair, even features, good teeth.
Sidney Strutt:[detectives unable to restrain laughter] Well what's so damn funny? There's been a grand larceny committed on these premises.

"You're aching my leg, Marnie", 3 September 2004
Author: BumpyRide from TCM's Basement

Add me to the group of viewers who like this film. Yes, it is long and heavy on dialog, but visually stunning, and Bernard Herrmann's music is rich and vibrant. The best score he has ever composed.

For me, I have favorite scenes in the movie, for example the opening shot of a woman carrying a yellow purse. From there we go to her hotel room and watch as she transforms herself into another person. Old clothes get discarded in a train locker and the key gently kicked down a grate. All of this is done with no words, but wonderful camera angles, and accompanied by a great musical score.

The office scene where Marnie waits in the women's room before robbing the safe. You only hear the voices of her co-workers saying good night for the weekend. Again, this entire scene is done visually, only this time with a split screen showing Marnie and the cleaning lady simultaneously, as if we are watching a play. Only when the shoe falls from her coat pocket do we know that the cleaning woman is hard of hearing and the scene is now concluded.

There are several vignettes such as these that make the movie interesting. Yes, the riding scenes are fake looking, and I think it was just a case where Alfred just didn't quite keep up with technology. But when you think of Marnie, this is the last, true Alfred Hitchcock movie we will ever see. From then on, we never again see a grand production with high production values as we have here.

Yes it has flaws, and the acting may not be up to par at times, but there are worthwhile aspects that make this movie a classic in the Hitchcock canon.
