Marnie is one of my favorite Hitchcock movies, and that Tippi Hendren is one creepy gal. The thing is, I visited Little Flower Petals earlier and saw her new Olympia that looks exactly like this one, then scooted over to Strikethru’s place where – binding machines aside – she threw out a little search for typewriters in the movies.
I realize this particular machine isn’t the star of the picture. Marnie stars a young and delicious Sean Connery, for God’s sake. The office scenes are full of those Hollywood-glam Olympias, though. Tippi even had stunning psychotic episodes behind a few of them.
I love it when a memory comes together, especially when it involves Big Honkin’ Typewriters and Sean Connery.
