Overview

1964, 130 min.
Direction: Alfred Hitchcock
Cinematography: Robert Burks

Marnie stars Tippi Hedren as a disturbed kleptomaniac terrified of the color red and Sean Connery as the businessman who becomes obsessed with her. It has a psycho-sexual intensity that is rare even for Hitchcock. Burks started out producing special effects for Warner Bros., specializing in forced perspective miniatures, before becoming a full director of photography in 1949. Marnie is the last of 12 films that he shot with "the master of suspense." Burks's clean and sharp, deep-focus approach came to define the classic Hitchcockian visual style.
