Today three of the Hitchcock blondes share what it was like to work with the director.
KIM NOVAK, interviewed in LA on Friday August 31st 2012
“It’s wonderful that Vertigo was named the number 1 film of all time. It’s only a shame that Hitch isn’t here to know it. He is one of the great directors and one to be studied. He was a perfectionist and didn’t make any short cuts.”
EVA MARIE SAINT, interviewed in LA on Tuesday October 16th 2012
“There were six of us Hitchcock blondes, and it’s like we all were married to the man at one time or another and we all have a different take on him. Each actress was at a different stage of their life, we were different ages, some married, some not. My experience with Hitch was one of utter respect, warmth, friendliness and humour, and North by Northwest was a glorious time in my life.”
DORIS DAY, interviewed in Carmel on Monday June 18th 2012
“He was wonderful, a great director and a good friend. I loved working with him. In The Man Who Knew Too Much he shot the scene when I find out that my son is kidnapped from many different angles and he always knew exactly what he wanted.”
