It’s been widely reported in the press that Alfred Hitchcock will make his Broadway debut next year in a play written by John Logan, who co-wrote two of the recent James Bond films. The story focuses on the turbulent working relationship between the director and actress Tippi Hedren.
“Game of Thrones” actor Conleth Hill and Anne Hathaway are reported to star. Let us hope that the play does a better job than the HBO Movie “The Girl” which was a mostly fictionalised account of the relationship between Hitchcock and Hedren. Save Hitchcock will be commenting on the play’s accuracy. In the meantime, for an accurate account of the director’s working methods, read “The Making of Hitchcock’s The Birds” and “Hitchcock and the Making of Marnie” both available on Amazon.
