Young and Innocent

Young and Innocent

About

We all know about the mindgames to which Hitch subjected Tippi Hedren. But what story does Pilbeam have to tell about him? She'd played the cross-faced kidnapped schoolgirl in his first version of The Man Who Knew Too Much, and here she's on the run with her murder-accused boyfriend. And who's that man in the blackface band? That would telling. With her dark, furious eyebrows and angular face, she's Hitchcock's most clammed-up and angry female lead. Whether sitting in a posh party or dodging her pursuers, she's full of a savage energy that she can never quite express.
