A little tribute to Michael Caine today on the board...outstanding career and a super cool actor. Again all the talk of money got me started down this road...
Any of you guys seen "Flawless"? It's a 2007 movie with Michael Caine and Demi Moore set in the 60s. Best job of recreating the 60s I've ever seen. I really forgot the movie wasn't made in the 60s when I was watching. Amazing movie about diamonds. Highly recommended...
For some reason, I remembered this movie as a 60s era movie, and I have no idea why, but I thought Tippi Hedren was in it. Talk about selective memory or whatever. Well, I was Googling Tippi Hedren to find the movie, and I found a little bit from Hedren on our old friend Alfred Hitchcock. She said that Hitchcock ruined her career by putting her in harm's way in the movie "The Birds". Not surprising from an American leading lady I suppose. Hitchcock was, of course a genius.
She said of Sir Alfred:
“We are dealing with a brain here that was an unusual genius, and evil, and deviant, almost to the point of dangerous, because of the effect that he could have on people that were totally unsuspecting.”
I would say that a rivalry developed between the two during their time working together to say the least. Hedren, thankfully is still alive and looks great at 82. Here's a photo from the August 3 article:
