Tippi Hedren gives an Oscar worthy turn as the emotionally wounded Marnie Edgar. She is betrayed, however, by an overbaked Bernard Hermann score that makes melodrama out of her plight and sounds passé even by 1964 standards. Sean Connery doesn’t bring much to his role as Mark Rutland, a rich widower whose actions call into question his own sanity. Overall, the film is just ok.
