Hitchcock and the Making of Marnie

0 Reviews
Hitchcock's 1964 psychological thriller Marnie generated wider critical controversy than any other film during his illustrious career. It is significant because the release of Marnie is commonly cited as the turning point in Hitchcock's career, a movie that has been called both his greatest masterpiece and the start of his decline in Hollywood. Divided into eight chapters, this study details the film from conception to postproduction and marketing, offering readers an opportunity of seeing the film-making process in action. Revealing previously unpublished production details and providing an oral history from several of its key participants, the book examines Marnie's place in Hitchcock's thematic career and Hitchcock's concept of pure cinema.
