"TWO FACES HAVE I" Lou Christie,
This review is from: Marnie (DVD)
Sufficiently recovered from "The Birds", Hedren is teamed with Sean Connery,and the results are much for the better.But, alas, in this movie she has too many bats in the belfry, not of her own making. She's a highly refined liar and swindler, who's terrified by thunderstorms, bright lights, physical contact, and Martin Gabel (who must have been yanked off a 60's quiz show to do a bit part). She loves horses, yet does dangerous stunts with them,the last of which leading to an equine fatality. Connery is obviously sexually attracted by her,but seemingly marries her as a personal reclamation project. As one problem after another is brought to light, with the assistance of a local "Sherlock Holmes", it seems that Hedren's mother is at the bottom of most of this, never having explained the sordid past, nor ever having taken her daughter for counseling.The story ends on a hopeful note, with at least a chance for Marnie to avoid jail time for past "sins", and Connery now perhaps able to live a somewhat normal life with her.
