Actress Tippi Hedren was presented with the Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock Writing Instrument.During a Champagne Brunch hosted by Montblanc to celebrate its new Collection Princesse Grace de Monaco at the iconic Hotel Bel-Air, actress Tippi Hedren was presented with a unique writing instrument created in honour of the legendary Hitchcock. The Minnesota-born actress has had a long and illustrious film career but most enduring are her roles in "The Birds" and "Marnie".
The Alfred Hitchcock Limited Edition, launched earlier this month, is an electrifying tribute to the inventor of the psychological thriller genre. The British filmmaker and producerʼs horror classics such as "Psycho" and "Vertigo" brought cinema to a new level of artistry, technical innovation and unconventional storytelling. Hitchcock became renowned for taking audiences on a rollercoaster ride of extreme fear and anxiety. Tippi Hendren's portrayal of socialite Melanie Daniels who falls victim to the vicious attacks of birds was a perfect example of Hitchcock's creative genius.
Actress Tippi Hedren was presented with the Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock Writing Instrument.When receiving the writing instrument from Montblanc, Tippi Hedren told the story of how Hitchcock gave her a first major movie role and the responsibility that went with carrying this on her shoulders. She said with fondness, "he was not only my director, he was my drama coach. Everything that he taught me I use to this day, everything." Without a doubt, her intense roles in his movies have become legendary in the eyes of film enthusiasts.
Using multiple camera angles and engaging in a unique form of voyeurism, he would leave viewers to imagine the brutality of crimes by only showing limited graphic violence on screen. His sophisticated techniques and ingenious editing allowed him to draw audiences into his world and play with their minds. Both editions, the Alfred Hitchcock Limited Edition 3000 and Limited Edition 80 bring to life his genius and tell the story of his extraordinary contribution to the art of film making.
Montblanc Alfred Hitchcock Limited Edition will be available in Montblanc boutiques worldwide.
