Do not try this at home
Photo byMichael Rougier for Life magazine in the 1970s. Many more here at
If the woman in the
photos looks familiar that’s because she is. It’s Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred
Hitchcock’s The Birds and Marnie. The photo above shows her
daughter Melanie Griffith (yes, that
Melanie Griffith), her house and her lion. The writer of the Life article recalls the occasion here (scroll down
to near the bottom of the page to the section headed “A lion comes calling”).
There is a good recent, i.e. last month, interview with Hedren here
talking about what a monster Hitchcock could be.
