Sixty years after its release, Hitchcock's campy whirlwind 1964 thriller Marnie still captivates audiences with its denouement of the title character, Baltimore’s best-dressed, most intellectual kleptomaniac. Tippi Hedren, one of Hitch’s favorite blondes, masterfully embodies the ice-cold goddess who loves horses, hates men, and falls into a quivering heap whenever she glimpses the color red. No less than Sean Connery, her on-screen love interest, states at the crux of the film, “I can't let you go, Marnie… If I let you go, I'm criminally and morally responsible.”

The film's costumes, crafted by Hollywood icon Edith Head, continue to influence fashion decades later. Notable examples include Alexander McQueen's 2005 runway creations, Ferragamo's 2020 collection, and Miuccia Prada's inspired 2013 Miu Miu designs. Hitch created plenty of style tropes, but he also recognized the power of clothes. Post-Marnie, Head reminisced about the director's meticulous approach, noting, “Every costume was indicated when he sent me the finished script. There was a reason for every color, every style, and he was absolutely certain about everything he settled on…he was really putting a dream together in the studio.”
