One year after she appeared as Melanie Daniels in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller, The Birds, actress Tippi Hedren took on another Hitchcock role in this unusual psychological drama. Marnie Edgars (Hedren) is a scheming young woman who repeatedly finds employment as a secretary and then proceeds to rob her employers. Though she changes her disguise, her new boss Mark Rutland (Sean Connery), a business associate of one victim, recognizes her. Mark proves to be a bit unusual himself and, instead of reporting her to the police, is intrigued by her criminal behavior--as well as her bizarre aversion to touch. Mark slowly uncovers the events in Marnie's past that have caused her antisocial behavior. Taken from Winston Graham's best-selling novel, Jay Presson Allen adapted Marnie to the screen. Allen would go on to create many more unusual female protagonists for the screen and stage. [Rotten Tomatoes]
