You are correct, Lavender. I was thinking of MARNIE, in which, in addition to Tippi Hedren, a young actress briefly showed up playing Marnie as a child. Your thread.

Thanks.

 

In one of Hitch's films, he physically manipulated one of the actresses faces to get the expression he wanted for the shot. Name the actress and the film.

 

btw- *Shanghai Gesture* is on TCM today- nothing to do with Hitch, but a very interesting film- Gene Tierney and Walter Huston. Catch it if you can.

There was a dog in REAR WINDOW that rode up and down in a little basket. Is that the prop from Disney? Was Grace Kelly's photo on beer cans? Hard to imagine.

What actor played the same role in two different versions of the same film--one directed by Hitchcock and one not?

Yes, he did, but it wasn't a remake of the same movie (like Edward Everett Horton played Nick Potter in both versions of Holiday)

 

Here's a clue:

It's not one of Hitchcock's better known films.

I did not know that. I was actualy thinking of Edmund Gwenn in The Skin Game-- he played Mr Hollister in both the 1921 and 1931 versions.

 

Buuuut, since you were also right, your thread cinecrazy!

Thanks ,,, as for actors, I'll yield to Edmund Gwenn ! ...

 

Next question ... In this 1950s Hitchcock thriller, one of the characters makes a reference in the dialogue to a famous theatrical school in New York which was actually attended by one of his co-stars in the film who later co-founded the the organization's west coast branch.

 

What was the film, who was the actor, and what was the school?
