Episode 352: Marnie (1964)

Special Guests: Tony Lee Moral, Tippi Hedren
Guest Co-Hosts: Tania Modleski, Susan White

How do you solve a problem like Marnie?

Released in 1964, Alfred Hitchcock's Marnie stars Tippi Hedren as the titular heroine -- or perhaps anti-heroine -- an itinerant thief who gets caught and essentially blackmailed into marriage with Mark (Sean Connery) who thinks that Marnie is broken and takes it upon himself to "fix" her, diving deep into her childhood trauma.

Tania Modleski (The Women Who Knew Too Much: Hitchcock and Feminist Theory and Susan White (The Cinema of Max Ophuls) join Mike to unravel the red-tinged mystery of the film.

Author and filmmaker Tony Lee Moral (Hitchcock and the Making of Marnie) and Tippi Hedren (Tippi: A Memoir) discuss the behind-the-scenes of the contentious production.

  1. The vocal fry is strong with these two guests. I wish neither women had that lazy, drawling way of speaking, extending the eeeeeeeeends of words, but as a listener who picks up on these things time to time, they do. For me, it was a hard listen. But many more to choose from...!

    1. I thought the guest stars Tippi and Tony were good
