Last night my wife made me sit through the BBC's Biopic called The Girl.
I was able to recall some of the pinched characters featured from my childhood having grown up around the personalities in the later Hitchcock films and others during that time. My Father was involved in production of opticals,titles and graphics for Psycho,The Birds and Marnie as well as many other films while working for Saul Bass.

Well that must have been an interesting childhood JP!
We can easily legitimise your post, as any mention of Saul Bass must bring this to mind...

I'm going to watch the Hitch pic on catchup TV. Hope it's worth watching.

It is Rob.

Toby Jones is suitably creepy as 'Hitch' and Sienna Miller is, if anything, prettier than the real Tippi Heddren if not quite so 'classy'.

And there are lots of great old cars to be seen throughout.... :up:
