Marnie makes for an interesting psychological study of a frigid woman who makes a habit of assuming false identities in order to gain employment at various companies, from which she then steals substantial sums of money. The script never gives in, keeping the title character—embodied fully and uncompromisingly by Tippi Hedren—a frustrating enigma deep into the film. Sean Connery is fine in his role as both love interest and rescuer. While not Alfred Hitchcock’s finest work, the direction is still measured and tight.
