    in Entertainment

    The former New York fashion model was making her debut as an actress in a starring role in The Birds, and such high praise from the enigmatic master of cinema shock and suspense was rare indeed.'


    The Countess From Hong Kong with Marlon Brando and Sophia Loren, directed by Chaplin, in what was to be the "Little Tramp's" final film.


    The three films, back to back, were an auspicious start for the Minnesota girl of Scandinavian parentage. Between over twenty films and numerous television appearances, she's been involved in a wide variety of humanitarian and environmental causes, almost overshadowing her screen work.


    Perhaps Tippi Hedren's most unique endeavor is being "den mother" and close friend to sixty-odd big cats - lion, tiger, leopard, cougar, serval and an African elephant at The Roar Foundation's Shambala Preserve near Acton, California. The high desert game preserve is home to the felines and pachyderms and was first established as an African-type set for the motion picture, Roar, which Tippi co-produced and starred in with her daughter, film actress Melanie Griffith.


    Tippi continues to work frequently in motion pictures, theatre, episodic and cable television, and her contributions to world cinema have been honored with a numerous amount of awards, too many to mention here.

    Hitchcock Again

    in Movies

    Movie Addict HQ explores renewed interest in Alfred Hitchcock after the release of two new films about the legendary Master of Suspense. Also, Tippi Hedren talks about working with Hitchcock. Plus film historian James Colt Harrison and entertainment journalist Diana Saenger engage in a spirited discussion about Hitchcock’s greatest films and the reasons for his success. Although Hitchcock passed away over 30 years ago this month, his filmmaking genius continues to fascinate movie fans. During 2012, we had the opportunity to see Anthony Hopkins play the legendary director in Hitchcock, a film about the man’s trials and tribulations while making Psycho. Also last year, The Girl -- co-starring Toby Jones as Hitchcock and Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren -- was shown on HBO. And Bates Motel, a prequel to Psycho, is  now a popular new series on the A&E Channel.
