"the" Mrs. Astor

We are extremely excited about the Miami Beach Cinematheque's presentation tomorrow of the spruced-up version of Hitchcock's classic, The Birds. The treasured Universal Vaults have been opened in an exclusive agreement with MBC partner Emerging Pictures, the world’s leading digital distributor of motion pictures presenting high definition versions of Hitchcock movies. The Cinematheque is always on the front lines of both classic and new, independent films. (I'm in the final stages, I hope, of working out a Saturday afternoon matinee club.)

Both of us remember seeing the film on its release, and changing our opinion of pretty, little birds forever; of particular note was the woman--the bird expert--in the movie who said with derision that there were so many birds it would be certain doom if they DID gang up on us. And, of course, there were the love birds carried out in the end as the little girl whined that they didn't do anything wrong. Sure, you little brat; they were the spies.

On a trip to LA we were on the Lot of Sony Studios and found our self's at the Donny & Marie Show. As a Countess we were taken to the Green Room where we met Miss Hedren who was there to do a pro-mo on Animal cruelty. She has a wonderful ranch for discarded animals. Miss Hedren was accompanied by her three legged Cheetah. She was truly a joy. Oh and also there was Michael York,he was Dashing

Tippy has been one of the most active animal rights activists ever; she has a ranch on which she cares for many abandoned and neglected animals.

And, Michael York...well...I've had a thing for him since Cabaret.
