A Brit a Day [#127]

This post is for Saturday.

I love this photograph more than I can say. Tippy Hedron and you-know-who from around the time they made “The Birds;” photographed by Lawrence Schiller, it’s currently on display at the Orange County Museum of Art as a part of an exhibit of Schiller’s work, including iconic later pics of Marilyn Monroe.
Alfred Hitchcock may be my favorite director, but I bet he was a bear to work for. Appropriate to this week’s theme, I love how utterly at ease Tippy Hedron looks here, either unaware of or in spite of the Great One’s weighty presence. And hand it to Schiller, he avoided the easy way out–there isn’t a bird in sight.
