Storyline

This hour long documentary on the making of Alfred Hitchcock's "Marnie" incorporates the usual melange of contemporary interviews with surviving participants and liberal helpings of film clips and production shots. It also presents a nice selection of script pages and memos as well. In the former category we find cast members 'Tippi' Hedren, Diane Baker, and Louise Latham, rejected screenwriters Joseph Stefano and Evan Hunter, final screenwriter Jay Presson Allen, daughter Pat Hitchcock O'Connell, production designer Robert Boyle, makeup artist Howard Smit, unit manager Hilton Green, Hitchcock historian Robin Wood, composer Bernard Herrmann biographer Steven C. Smith, and Hitchcock fan/filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich. An entertaining account of the film's production, the participants offer loads of valuable information and anecdotes. Highly enjoyable for Hitchcock fans and the film's growing number of admirers. Written by alfiehitchie

Two things, otherwise great
1 October 2010 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

This is the feature-length documentary on the DVD of Marnie, and note that it spoils the film. It consists of interviews, clips of the film and stills/covers from this and other of Alfred's movies. There is clear(and deserved; always nice when that is the case) love-fest in this, but it also goes into things that were meant to have been different, and might have even improved the final product, in spite of it already being excellent. It was originally meant to have a male co-worker(he became Lil) with whom Mark would compete for Marnie's affections, and a therapist. They go into the rape scene, and how the first writer was fired for trying to cut it. In general, this is very interesting, and they cover most of what we'd wanna know. It is lacking any involvement from Connery(I understand that he is a private man), and this doesn't go into the well-known falling out between Hedren and Hitchcock. Tippi could have told us her version; that would really have added to this. Still, a very informative 58 and a half minutes. There is disturbing content and blood in this. I recommend this to every fan of the picture itself. 8/10
