This HBO original movie goes behind-the-scenes for some Hollywood lore and if you're an Alfred Hitchcock fan then you'll want to tune in. The Girl premieres on HBO Saturday night at 9 p.m. with repeat performances throughout the month - also OnDemand.
The Girl stars Toby Jones as Alfred Hitchcock and Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, and tells the story of the director’s obsessive relationship with his leading lady during the making of The Birds and Marnie. As he attempted to sculpt Hedren into the perfect Hitchcock blonde of his imagination, he became obsessed with the impossible dream of winning the real woman’s love. Her rejection of his misguided attempts only added to his obsession, putting both their careers and personal lives in jeopardy.
