In THE GIRL, which re-airs on HBO this week, Toby Jones plays filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. It’s not an especially flattering view of the director/producer, as it deals with his unwanted fascination with actress Tippi Hedren (played in THE GIRL by Sienna Miller), who starred in THE BIRDS and MARNIE for Hitchcock. The London-born Jones is almost always working. A few recent credits include TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, THE HUNGER GAMES and the voice of Dobby in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PT. 1.

Filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock had such a specific way of depicting beautiful blonde women that “Hitchcock blonde” is still part of the Hollywood vernacular. At the time she starred in THE BIRDS and MARNIE for him, Tippi Hedren was the epitome of the Hitchcock blonde. Hedren kept relatively silent for many years, but according to her, Hitchcock was harrowingly abusive. THE GIRL, which premieres Saturday night at 9 PM on HBO, dramatizes Hedren’s account of their working experience, with Sienna Miller as Hedren and Toby Jones as Hitchcock. THE GIRL director Julian Jarrold, whose credits include the delightful musical KINKY BOOTS …Read On »
