Alfred and Alma

According the U.K. Guardian (via GreenCine Daily):

“Anthony Hopkins and Academy Award front-runner Helen Mirren are in talks to star in an upcoming drama about the life of Alfred Hitchcock. Alfred Hitchcock Presents chronicles the obstacles that the celebrated film-maker had to overcome while making Psycho. Mirren would play Hitchcock’s wife and artistic collaborator.”

It wouldn’t be the first time representations of Alfred and Alma have appeared on-screen. The great Leo G. Carroll and equally great Kathleen Freeman appeared as fictionalized versions of Alfred and Alma in Vincente Minnelli’s The Bad and The Beautiful (1952).
