Product Description

A psychological mystery thriller from the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Kleptomaniac Marnie Edgar (Tippi Hedren), who moves from job to job and has a pathological fear of the colour red, is caught stealing by latest employer, Mark Rutland (Sean Connery). Instead of turning her over to the police, Mark forces Marnie to marry him, convinced that he can get to the bottom of her psychosis.

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

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!!!

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.

Please note this is about the Blu-ray transfer not the film. Marnie for me was one of the last real classic Hitchcock films, and although not a massive hit at the time, the film has become well respected among, film buffs and Hitchcock loves alike.
Marnie was released on DVD with a awful pan and scan version, so I was looking forward to seeing and hearing the film in all its glory.
To say i was disappointed, is an understatement, the film starts by looking like a second generation video, very grainy, and in places almost out of focus. Before you might say but this is an old film, both Psycho and Vertigo look fantastic, which are both older 1958, 1960 respectively.
I have no idea what has gone wrong with the transfer here but I am surprised they were even allowed to issue the film like this, no I am not exaggerating it is bad, so much so I would rather not have the film in its present state.
The problem appears to be that, Vertigo, The trouble with Harry, Rear Window, The Man who knew to much and Rope have all be painstakingly re-mastered frame by frame By James C Katz and Robert Harris returning the film to its original look, On Marnie it appears that no work has been done, and by the look of the film it is in need of some restoration work...urgently.
The sound is mono and there is a making of documentary, the same as the original DVD.
This is such a shame, for such a great film.

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.

Marnie is typically Hitchcockian, in that is full of suspense and female angst, yet is is also a film that would stand up to a psychoanalytic assessment, since the acting out and unconsciously driven behaviours are embedded in trauma from the past, involving the female lead and her mother. Since mother's shame prevents her from releasing her (now grown up daughter) from the repetition-compulsive element of her daughter's behaviour, her daughter is in thrall to her mother. Her trauma has locked her into a need to make attempts at reparation to her mother, for the loss of active use of one of her legs, by attempting to provide for her in a financial way, which is far beyond her capacity. As such, she engages in deception and theft at companies she works for, in an unconsciously driven way. This is confirmed, most markedly when, having married a rich man, she remains in thrall to the compulsion to steal
Of course, since this is Hitchcock, there is a handsome man there to release her from her trauma. In this case, it is the hugely attractive (at the time) Sean Connery. He and Tippi Hedren make a credible pair. Indeed, all characters are locked into a kind of obsessiveness. How interesting that now we know that the biggest obsessive was Hitchcock himself.
Yet Hitchcock was a great film maker. The film grips throughout and confirms to me as strongly as ever, that Freud was a genius.
