Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Both visually and psychologically, Marnie is crass in comparison with Hitchcock's peak achievement in Vertigo--although it shares some of that film's characteristic obsessive themes. Sean Connery, fresh from From Russia with Love, is a Philadelphia playboy who begins to fall for Tippi Hedren's blonde ice goddess only when he realises that she's a professional thief (she's come to work in his upper-crust insurance office in order to embezzle mass quantities). His patient programme of investigation and surveillance has a creepy, voyeuristic quality that's pure Hitchcock, but all's lost when it emerges that the root of Marnie's problem is phobic sexual frigidity, induced by a childhood trauma. Luckily, Sean is up to the challenge, as it were. Not even DH Lawrence believed as fervently as Hitchcock in the curative properties of sexual release. --David Chute

Product Description

A woman's complex life leads her into becoming a compulsive thief, while her husband tries not only to save her from jail but salvage their marriage. Based on the novel by Winston Graham.

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: Pan-and-scan version of widescreen film 13 Mar 2009
By Kenneth F. Mcara VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
For resons best known to themselves, Universal UK have issued most of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960s/1970s films (The Birds, Marnie, Torn Curtain, Topaz, Frenzy) in pan-and-scan 1.33:1 ratio, although these films were originally shown in widescreen (1.85:1).

This is available via Region 1 imported discs - if your DVD player is multi-region - but surely the UK deserves a better service than this!

Come on, Universal UK - give us the same remastered widescreen versions that are available for the US market!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware - Universal's done it again! 11 Sep 2013
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This is a truly weak transfer which has already been issued as part of the Hitchcock blu ray set and now comes out as a single disc. As it's one of my favourite movies I really could not believe the low quality they have achieved. Along side "Family Plot" (which was DNR'd out of it's mind to produce living waxwoks) it is by far the most shoddy disc in the set and I'm sure it's what they are going to release now too. The colour is not good and the black levels are disappointing. Although the definition is fair the grain swarms around like angry bees and is a constant distraction particularly on very large screens or video projection. My SD DVD copy is infinitely better on all counts and I really cannot understand what Universal is up to! Just check out their transfer of "Citizen Kane" ( as against the excellent Warner version) and their recent "remastered" version of "Cats" to see just how poor this major company can be. I'd stick with your DVD version if I were you! Even on big screen video projection it screens far better than this mess and my views are echoed by all the major blu ray reviewers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Psychological Thriller 4 May 2006
By L. Davidson VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Marnie" is one of Hitchcock's darker films that features themes like kleptomania, compulsive lying, female frigidity , dark family secrets and childhood trauma. Phew ! As you can tell , it is not a barrel of laughs, but it is well acted and the plot is developed well. "Marnie" is part romance, part mystery and part thriller and deals with the relationship between a rich, eccentric ,slightly maverick businessman (Sean Connery) and the beautiful, but psychologically disturbed Marnie (Tippi Hedren). Connery tries unsuccessfully to get behind Marnie's icy protective shell,only penetrating it and uncovering the mystery behind her traumatised condition in a dramatic denouement at the home of one of her relatives. "Marnie" makes for uncomfortable viewing at times and is ,perhaps, the last really good film that Hitchcock made.

Format:DVD
Perhaps the last of the great Hitchcock movies, Marnie is a flawed masterpiece. Tippi Hedren plays Marnie with the intelligence of an accomplished criminal and the vulnerability of frightened young girl. Sean Connery is also convincing in the unlikely role of the rich and very eligible Mark Rutland who is obsessed with saving Marnie from her fractured life. The script by Jay Presson Allen provides some brilliant highpoints in a plot that traces common Hitchcock themes of childhood trauma and an overbearing mother. Hitchcock's direction, however, varies from the sublime to the ridiculous. Brilliant compositions and set pieces, such as the robbery scene, Rutland's office and the final climax, are held together by some truly awful studio fabrications. This was to be the last time Hitchcock would work with many of his oldest allies, including his director of photography Robert Burks, his editor George Tomasini and composer Bernard Herman. As such, it really does represent the end of an era.
It's a great shame that such an important film has been so poorly transferred onto this region 2 disc. An aspect ratio of 1.33:1 might be great for those wanting to fill their TV screens, but it seriously detracts from many compositions. The picture quality is also very grainy and often noticeably blurred. I've heard that the region 1 version is better, so that might be a worthwhile consideration for those with region free machines. Otherwise, I would wait until the studio finally gives this film the treatment it deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hitchcock. 16 April 2006
Format:DVD
Another outstanding film from the Master starring Sean Connery and Tippi Hedren. We follow a beautiful woman (Hedren) who applies for jobs, works her way into her employer's confidence and then robs them when the opportunity arises. Until, that is, she encounters Sean Connery - who is convinced that marrying her will cure her of her kleptomania. The heavy-handed Freudian themes make this film seem quite dated, but the performances, writing and direction are utterly superb and make the film genuinely gripping from beginning to end. It's also great to see Sean Connery show what he can do with a more substantial part.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must-See 2 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Nearly all Alfred Hitchcock films feature a great deal of suspence and high drama and the master director always goes into great detail with each scene in his movies. Marnie has all of this and plus an added ingredient of emotionalism and romance.
Marnie is quite slow to start with, but quickly builds up to many gripping scenes. Tippi Hedren plays the confused theif Marnie and it is the great Sean Connery who steps in as the wealthy businessman to help her overcome her problems and also, get to the bottom of her theiving ways. Sean Connery was currently in 1964 considered as 'hot property' in the film industry for his role as James Bond, and in Marnie his 007 character is still there in the background for all to see. Connery's performance is simply excellent and it is hard to imagine any other actor playing this part. Tippi Hedren of course, being the leading star, performs excellently and manages her role with great imagination.
Overall, Hitchcock does it again; keeps us gripped to the edge of our seats and manages easily to make the most out of each scene. Marnie overall, is a great must-see movie with great performances from both Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery.
