Sean Connery at his sexiestBy a customer from London, UK , 12 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a tense, exciting and very involving thriller which tells the story of Marnie, played by Tippi Hendren (Melanie Griffiths' mother)- a mysterious young woman with phobias about men and the colour red, and all sorts of other issues which Mark Rutland (played by the very sexy young Sean Connery) is deterimined to unravel the reasons behind. From the intriguing beginning to the shocking climax, this Alfred Hitchcock classic will keep you transfixed.

"Marnie's" MarvellousBy Diabolicus (11 reviews) from Seaford , 03 Apr 2013Don't know why this is regarded as a 'lesser' Hitchcock - although the explanation for Marnie's (Tippi Hedren's) fears is a little weak, the film is stylistically 'Hitch' at his best. Tippi Hedren is excellent in the typical 'Ice-Maiden/Hitchcock Blonde' role - Sean Connery is ok, but personally I'd have cast Cary Grant in this role , but perhaps he wasn't attracted by the subject matter. Strong support too from Diane Baker, Alan Napier & early cameo by Bruce Dern. If you like Hitchcock, then give this a look, if you like cleverly plotted thrillers, also worth checking out too.
Masterpiece nearlyBy JSULLY6 (8 reviews) from WEMBLEY , 17 Mar 2013Long forgotten Hitchs last great film ..if only Grace was available.. it would have been perfect oh well.. its still great
Classic HitchcockBy Derekandian (10 reviews) , 26 Jan 2012Classic Hitchcock and fantastically filmed.... Absolutely fantastic for when this film was made... Sean Connery is beleivable and true to character
Two thumbs up!By ARV (4 reviews) , 15 Dec 2011This really is classic Hitchcock. Great story and Connery is surprisingly believable in the role. And of course, Hermann's score is superb.
One of Hitchcock's BestBy Petergrafton (9 reviews) from Dawlish , 08 Aug 2011A fascinating study of psychological dysfunction and the way Sean Connery uses it to gain power. Don't be put off by poor backdrops and trite solutions to complex psychological problems. This tackles themes few films do, and you feel it brushes closely with some of Hitchcock's fears and desires.
