The beautiful Tippi Hedren, who is a woman after my own heart. Surviving the experience of working with Alfred Hitchcock and the onslaught of his birds, now surrounds herself with pet lions, and large cats at her sanctuary.

    1. I hated the way Sean Connery treated Tippi’s character of Marnie. Although she was an absolute nymph in the film. She’s still beautiful today, and she loves cats…what a woman…

      1. Yeah but he was trying to help her though, he really cared about her. You know when he tried to cure her of her klepto urges he was doing it out of love and you know what they say, “Love Hurts” or “You hurt the one you love”. MG as long as you keep doing what your’e doing I keep watchin’ n’ a commentin’ on your’e reviewin’…lol Seriously like your movie blog.

      2. Thomas you are too kind. I love to see your presence here, always supporting my posts, chiming in with great comments, and urging me to write on. I haven’t forgotten your suggestion of covering Ace in The Hole, I started watching it the other night, and fell in love with it. So I’ll be doing a From The Vault for you.You just keep a commentin’ on my blog, and I’ll keep a giving you the goods

  1. The first time I saw this film I was a little creeped out, but didn’t realize how much so until the next morning. I was riding my bike near some bushes and I must have spooked some little birds resting there. As I rode by, they suddenly flew up out of the bush and I SCREAMED! There were probably only 6 and they were very tiny, but still!
