Tippi Hedren visits Chicago’s Music Box Theatre

Tippi Hedren at Music Box Theatre

On March 27, I had the honor of attending a screening of The Birds (1963) at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre, part of Turner Classic Movies’ annual “Road to Hollywood” film festival. Original Hitchcock blonde Tippi Hedren was present to introduce the film with TCM host Ben Mankiewicz.

Hedren sat down for a very candid interview beforehand, openly discussing how Hitchcock made her a household name shortly before taking it all away after she refused to acquiesce the director’s personal affection. Appreciative of what little time they shared professionally before things turned, she reflected, “He may have ended my career, but he didn’t end my life.”
