In this psychological thriller, Hedren plays a compulsive thief who can't stand to be touched by any man, or the sight of the color red. Her boss (Sean Connery) blackmails her into marriage when he stumbles onto her breaking into his safe. Features a mesmerizing flashback sequence about (what else?) a bad mother. The film is buoyed by the driving musical score of Bernard Herrmann – his last for Hitchcock. (1964; 130 min)
