Tippi Hedren’s Look Magazine cover & how Alfred Hitchcock ruined her career, but not her life.

Tippi Hedren, star of The Birds (1963) & Marnie (1964), appeared on the cover of Look Magazine on December 4, 1962.  Strangely enough, she wasn’t all over the press, although these films, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, were and still are masterpieces.

Recently however, Hedren is part of an HBO movie called “The Girl”, a kind of dramatized version of Marnie. In it, Hitchcock is portrayed as obsessed with Hedren and vindictive when the actress rejects his advances. She had to fight to get out of her contract with Hitchcock and lost roles because of it, she said in an interview and it ultimately ruined her career, but not her life.

Claudia Cardinale’s gorgeous “Hayat” magazine covers

We all know Claudia Cardinale (1938- born in Tunisia), the star of many a classic films such as “Once Upon A Time In The West” (1968), 8 1/2 (1963), The Leopard (1963) etc.

But now, let’s meet “Hayat” magazine, which became one of Turkey’s most popular celebrity magazines in the early 1950s. I searched for some interesting covers with the actress on them but a lot of that era’s production, looked right out of a cheesy ready-to-wear catalog.

Very few covers were as interesting, or aesthetically satisfying, as what Hayat printed, at the height of Cardinale’s fame.
