Larry Cohen on

Marnie

Released 1964
Distributor Universal

Another elaborate personalized Hitchcock trailer. His “”sex mystery”” followup to The Birds has its adherents, but Larry Cohen isn’t one of them. Nice Bernard Herrmann score though, and the star of Family Plot has a supporting role. For the record, Dan Ireland has a more positive view of Marnie.
