Universal City: Universal Pictures, 1964. Vintage studio still photograph from the set of the 1964 film, showing director Alfred Hitchcock and a camera crew capturing a shot of actress Tippi Hedren at a desk in the publishing company office. With a printed mimeo snipe affixed to the verso, along with the stamp of Culver Pictures and a stamp noting No. 75147.
Based on Winston Graham's 1961 novel, which follows a wealthy businessman's unwanted, often cruel attempts to help a troubled young woman come to terms with her dark past. The production faced several setbacks in its development, most relating to Hitchcock's insistence on including a rape scene present in the novel, and the subsequent troubles in casting the lead role, given the emotional complexity demanded for the character.
Set and shot on location in California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and Maryland.
10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
