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.

First Detective: Can you describe her, Mr. Strutt?
Sidney Strutt: Certainly I can describe her: five feet five, 110 pounds, size 8 dress, blue eyes, black wavy hair, even features, good teeth.

Alternate Versions

Dialogue in the final scene reveals that Marnie's mother had given up her virginity at 15 to Marnie's father in exchange for a sweater. Just before the film's release the studio had second thoughts about this part, and Alfred Hitchcock agreed to cut the lines. But hundreds of prints had already been made, and rather than incur the cost of reprinting the final reel of each, the studio released them as they were, so there were two versions of the film from the outset.

User Reviews

A glorious romantic melodrama
3 March 1999 | by Mike S.See all my reviews

This romantic melodrama is one of Hitchcock's most sheerly enjoyable films. There are all sorts of ways in which it doesn't work, but it doesn't matter. It is one of my key guilty pleasures. So as soon as that wonderful Herrmann theme begins, one should lay aside one's critical faculties, sit back and enjoy.
