King Connery: Marnie (1964)

Hoezo in Kino

“What you do need, I suspect, is a psychiatrist.” This often overlooked Hitchcock concerning a strategic and toxic marriage had Connery playing opposite of Tippi Hedren, who was so charmed by him she named one of her cats Sean and they remained friends for life. Connery might have been a bit more rustic than Hitchcock’s more refined regulars like Stewart and Grant but he fits neatly in this battle of wills set against a backdrop of theft, deception and mental illness. Marnie is widely considered as the final truly great Hitchcock, bookending a staggering run of films that shaped the cinematic language as we now know it.
