Two actors are this year in shoes “great master of suspense”, Alfred Hitchcock. Toby Jones in “The Girl” and Anthony Hopkins in “Hitchcock”. If “Hitchcock” focuses on the relationship between the director and his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren) during the filming of the famous “Psycho”, in “The Girl” is treated for Hitchcock’s obsession for Tippy Hedren, one of his fetish actresses, which starred in “Marnie” and “The Birds”.
Hitchcock met Tippy Hedren only later in his career, why have only two collaborations, but was so charmed by the actress that voiced belief that she will be the new Grace Kelly. In fact she not came to fame of Grace Kelly, but the movie “Psycho” for which Tippy was subject to attacks by real birds remained in history. Blonde Tippy, for which the director has developed an unhealthy attraction, he starred in “The Girl” by Sienna Miller and the images so far, the resemblance between the two is breathtaking.
The director was 62 years, and Tippy 31 years was divorced when they started working. Hitchcock forced her to sign an exclusive contract with a validity of 7 years, and then became involved in her personal life: he required something to wear, who to go away, what to eat and even following a private detective.
Scenario biographical drama “The Girl” is performed by Gwyneth Hughes after the book “Spellbound by Beauty” launched in 2008 by Donald Spoto. Actress Tippi Hedren (82 years) agreed to be a consultant in making this film project. While “Hitchcock” is a big screen movie and it will certitutdine claims to the Oscars, “The Girl” is an HBO television production and will premiere on October 20 on small screens.
