Storyline

This hour long documentary on the making of Alfred Hitchcock's "Marnie" incorporates the usual melange of contemporary interviews with surviving participants and liberal helpings of film clips and production shots. It also presents a nice selection of script pages and memos as well. In the former category we find cast members 'Tippi' Hedren, Diane Baker, and Louise Latham, rejected screenwriters Joseph Stefano and Evan Hunter, final screenwriter Jay Presson Allen, daughter Pat Hitchcock O'Connell, production designer Robert Boyle, makeup artist Howard Smit, unit manager Hilton Green, Hitchcock historian Robin Wood, composer Bernard Herrmann biographer Steven C. Smith, and Hitchcock fan/filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich. An entertaining account of the film's production, the participants offer loads of valuable information and anecdotes. Highly enjoyable for Hitchcock fans and the film's growing number of admirers. Written by alfiehitchie

AMAZING MOVIE, AMAZING DOCUMENTARY!!!
15 October 2001 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

If you are, like me, a maniac for all the work MASTER Hitchcock produced in his career, then you should also like to know as much as you can about it. This is why this documentary is so amazing. Marnie is an unforgettable movie, with an actress, who is no doubt also a goddess, "Tippi" Hedren. This blonde bomb, makes every shot an absolute pleasure to watch. All i can say is "WHAT A WOMEN". In this documentary you can take a look at this diva today, listen to her memories, and understand the back story behind all the movie. It is invaluable. You can also be witness to depositions by the author of the screenplay, Jay Allen, and even Evan Hunter, telling you how he got fired. Its incredible. If you like Marnie and Hitch, dont loose this. See it over and over. Amaze yourself with pure genius.
