Join us for a new series of program, HITCHCOCK ALSO RAN as we screen some of Alfred Hitchcock's lesser-celebrated cinematic works, starting with the 1964 star-studded "suspenseful sex mystery" Marnie. Most all of us have seen Psycho, The Birds, Rear Window and Vertigo--and cinemas the world over screen these titles regularly--but at Cinema Capitol we believe there is much to be enjoyed in Hitchcock's lesser know "also rans."

One year after she appeared as Melanie Daniels in Alfred Hitchcock's thriller, The Birds, actress Tippi Hedren took on another Hitchcock role in this unusual psychological drama. Marnie Edgars (Hedren) is a scheming young woman who repeatedly finds employment as a secretary and then proceeds to rob her employers. Though she changes her disguise, her new boss Mark Rutland (Sean Connery), a business associate of one victim, recognizes her. Mark proves to be a bit unusual himself and, instead of reporting her to the police, is intrigued by her criminal behavior--as well as her bizarre aversion to touch. Mark slowly uncovers the events in Marnie's past that have caused her antisocial behavior. Taken from Winston Graham's best-selling novel, Jay Presson Allen adapted Marnie to the screen. Allen would go on to create many more unusual female protagonists for the screen and stage.
