9780810856844: Hitchcock and the Making of Marnie (The Scarecrow Filmmakers Series)

This extensive look into the making of Alfred Hitchcock's most controversial film, Marnie, investigates the causes of the film's critical and commercial failure, the cultural and political factors governing the film's production, and the relevance the film has for today's artists and filmmakers. Hitchcock's style, motivation, and fears regarding the film are well-documented in this probing look at one of his most undervalued efforts. Author Tony Lee Moral uses extensive research, including personal interviews with Tippi Hedren, author Winston Graham, and Psycho screenwriter Joseph Stefano - as well as unpublished excerpts from interviews with Hitchcock himself - to delve into the issues surrounding the film's production and release. Moral gives readers an invaluable look behind the scenes at a film that is only now being recognized for its influence and vision.

Contains more than thirty photos, including a story board sequence for the film.

About the Author:

Tony Lee Moral is a documentary filmmaker and writer who has produced a number of award winning films around the world. His work includes behind the scenes profiles of film and television dramas, science fiction and animation.

Review:

Moral's research is impressive....he relies extensively on the special collection of Hitchcock materials deposited at the Margaret Herrick Library of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after the director's death. He has supplemented this material with a series of interviews he conducted with many of those who worked on the film including...Diane Baker, Robert Boyle, Sean Connery, Winston Graham...and Tippi Hedren....a firstrate history of the development of Marnie... (Cineaste)

Documentary filmmaker Moral chronicles the progress of the movie Marnie from its conception, writing, phases of production, and release in 1964, to critical interpretation and assimilation within the art film world. The film's feminist and political themes are examined and glossy black and white photographs are provided. Originally published in hardback in 2002. (Reference and Research Book News)

A superior work of production history reasonable in scope and supported by ample evidence, both textual and otherwise. Ultimately, Hitchcock and the Making of Marnie is an engaging - and sorely needed - case study of how a film is made, and will satisfy students of cinema and scholars of Hitchcock, alike. (Scope: An Online Journal of Film and Television Studies)

This book should be read by anyone interested in Marnie and in Hitchcock. (Hitchcock Annual)

Impeccably researched and consistently fascinating in its accumulation of anecdotes and minutiae, this is unquestionably one of the best books ever written about the Master of Suspense. Outstanding. Five Stars> (Film Review)

Tony Lee Moral has conducted a definitive investigation into the making and meaning of Marnie, which, for fans and scholars of Hitchcock, remains the suspense master's most enigmatic, controversial film. (Patrick McGilligan, author, Alfred Hitchcock: Darkness and Light)

Who better than a film lover trained in zoology as well as psychology to write a book on Hitchcock's great, if controversial, Marnie? Tony Lee Moral fits the bill perfectly. (Ken Mogg, Editor, The MacGuffin)

Tony Moral's meticulous research is the foundation of this fascinating book on the creative life of Hitchcock the filmmaker. The behind the scenes look at this famous director is full of insight and intelligence. It is an invaluable book and should be read by every film student and anyone who is the least bit interested in film. A very rewarding read. (Diane Baker, Actress)

Tony Lee Moral is the perfect guide to the creative process that produces this fascinating movie. (Crime Time)

Impeccably researched and consistently fascinating in its accumulation of anecdotes and minutiae, this is unquestionably one of the best books ever written about the Master of Suspense. Outstanding. Five Stars (Film Review)
