My one-on-one interview with Ms. Hedren fell through, unfortunately, but I'll attend the event and report on what she had to say to the crowd.

Jenn--There was that movie recently about the hell she went through filming The Birds--ask her about that!

Good suggestion! I watched that movie on TV as a kid, when I wasn't supposed to, and it freaked me out - especially that phone booth scene. "Marnie" has a disturbingly misogynist kink to it. That should provide plenty to talk about, too...

Looks like I'll probably get the chance to talk to Ms. Hedren a few hours before her appearance at the screening. As a longtime fan of Hitchcock movies, I've got some questions already in mind - but if anyone out there has any burning questions to add to my list, go ahead and suggest them here in the comment section!

I'm guessing you can get as many tickets as you need via the site listed above, beginning Tuesday at 10 a.m.

is it one ticket per caller? I'd like to see if I could get two tickets and bring a friend.
