Legendary movie star Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’, will meet her fans at Newbridge Silverware’s Museum of Style Icons this Saturday, May 26, between 1pm and 3pm.

She will be reunited with one of her outfits from the noted horror film during her visit to Newbridge - the original two piece green wool suit she wore as the character Melanie Daniels in the 1963 movie. This Edith Head designed garment is part of the permanent collection at the museum.

The relationship between Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren continues to cause worldwide interest.

Their story is almost as engaging and horrific as the movies that they made together, and his obsession eventually led to the ruination of her movie career.

The battles Tippi fought with the legendary film director are being chronicled in a BBC2 biopic, The Girl, starring Sienna Miller as the object of Hitchcock’s infatuation. Tippi acted as advisor on the movie and is scheduled to see it for the first time in early June.

Tippi is the mother of actress Melanie Griffith.

All are welcome to visit Newbridge Silverware this Saturday and have their photos taken with and memorabilia signed by the movie legend.
