In the Golden age of Hollywood it was easy to brush scandals under the carpet. Take Rock Hudson for instance, who would have thought? Now Tippi Hedren has admitted that the married Alfred Hitchcock, who directed her in films, also made a play for her. The still lovely Hedren confirms that Hitch sexually harassed her when she was at her peak. She rebuffed him and her career hit the buffers. That’s life and life goes on.
A recent twitter poll asked a similar question to the long-running debate of best Bond girl: “Who was Hitchcock’s greatest leading lady?”. Hedren came out on top. Referee, Referee, you’ve got that all wrong. Consult your linesman. It’s got to be Grace Kelly.
Good looks, good acting, good pedigree. Got Royalist written all over her.
