One of my favorite book bloggers posts the most interesting quotes and pictures.  The blogger, Cipriano, calls it splash du jour and you can see what I mean over on his BookPuddle blog.

With a nod to Cipriano I will occasionally do the same if there's a pithy quote that works with the book/movie news I'm blogging about.

Today, in my earlier post, I included the teaser trailer to The Girl, a film that centers around Alfred Hitchcocks' fascination with Tippi Hedrin. In the film, Hedrin is played by Sienna Miller.
Here then, is today's entry. Note Tippi Hedrin is a blonde.

"Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints."
                                    Alfred Hitchcock

I'm thinking of making a list of all the blonde victims in films, just to see if Hitchcock was right.


  1. Were all of his victims blondes? We watched To Catch a Thief the other day, which doesn't really seem like a Hitchcock movie since it isn't eerie enough.

    1. I LOVE that one. And I don't know if all but there were a lot of blondes: Janet Leigh in Psycho, Eva Marie Saint in North by Northwest, Kim Novak in Vertigo, Ingrid Bergman in Notorious and Spellbound, Hedrin in The Birds and Marni and your Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief and Rear Window. Of course there was Shirley Maclaine in The Trouble with Harry but that seems like a really bizarre outlier to me!

  2. This is so terrific. I'm so glad I was able to inspire you in this direction.
    And to be considered among your "favorite book bloggers" -- thank you. I consider that a very dear honor.
    Here is one of my own brief quotes, regarding the Wonderfulness of Blondeness:

    1. Laugh out loud funny. Seriously y'all check out Cipriano's Sorry Girls post for a good laugh.
      Thanks for sharing Cip!
