Happy Belated Birthday, Tippi!

In honor of Tippi Hedren's recent 86th birthday (and she still looks fabulous!), here is a vintage shot from 1964 of her with Rock Hudson. The accompanying publicity blurb says:

Tippi Hedren, newly elected Mayor of Universal City, receives the gavel of office from ex-Mayor Rock Hudson. Miss Hedren, currently starring with Sean Connery in Alfred Hitchcock's "Marnie," will preside over an incorporated area of 410 acres — larger than the entire principality of Princess Grace's Monaco. Her "constituents" total more than 4500 Universal City employees.

The comment about Monaco might have been a little jab from Hitch himself, who was extremely disappointed that Grace Kelly turned down the role of "Marnie" at the last minute.

I saw that the other day. Couldn't believe Tippi was that up there in age. She still looks great.
