Critics reviews

The Saint Stephen’s Day steeplechase, with its rhythmic crisscross of leaping horses (and a glimpse of the vibrant young John Wayne literally tearing into his ten-second cameo in the audience), is a little tour de force that finds its way into Marnie’s fox hunt. “A great yellow stain on the green of Ireland” finally goes up in black smoke, the heiress watches the pyre with a relieved smile, a climax reprised in many a vampire film.
