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.
