This Thursday, 16 August, 6.15 Hitchcock Blonde Tippi Hedren will take to the BFI stage to discuss her film career and memories from filming The Birds (for which she won a Golden Globe for most promising newcomer) and Marnie. Hedren, who now runs a sanctuary for big cats in California, will also talk about her contributions to The Girl, a BBC production inspired by her relationship with Hitchcock. Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto will host this event.
The talk will be followed by a screening of Marnie (1964), starring Tippi Hedren, Sean Connery, Diane Baker, and Martin Gabel.
Right now it looks as though tickets for the event at the BFI itself are sold out, however the conversation will also be screened live at Picturehouse cinemas around the UK, as follows:
Arts Picturehouse Cambridge
Duke of York’s
Phoenix East Finchley
Picturehouse at FACT
