Premiering this weekend on HBO, THE GIRL is a somewhat shocking, behind-the-scenes, warts-and-all look at events surrounding the filming of ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S iconic thrillers THE BIRDS and MARNIE starring icy blonde bombshell TIPPI HEDREN. One of a string of fair-haired leading ladies that the corpulent filmmaker obsessed over and (allegedly) lusted after, HEDREN allows the film to detail how HITCHCOCK managed to be every bit as creepy in real life as his films were on screen. Directed by JULIAN JARROLD, the cast features SIENNA MILLER and TOBY JONES as the beleaguered actress and her unctuous director.
During the Television Critics Association press conference to promote the film, HEDREN talked about how unsettling seeing the film for the first time was. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
