The Girl competition - DVD

“There was a young lady from Trent, who said she knew what she meant, when he asked her to dine - private rooms, lots of wine - and she knew (oh, she knew) but she went.”

Alfred Hitchcock throwing real life birds at Tippi Hedren while filming The Birds has become the stuff of Hollywood legend. Their troubled relationship was brought brilliantly to life by the BBC and HBO over Christmas in The Girl, which comes out on DVD on Monday 7th January. (Read our review of The Girl.)

Broadcast on Boxing Day, Julian Jarrold's dramatised account of Tippi's version of events sparked controversy as much as it impressed with Toby Jones' fantastic performance and stylish production design - making it, in our opinion, a must-see movie for Hitchcock fans.

Which is why we're pleased to be giving away 2 copies on DVD.  To win your own copy of The Girl, just answer this question...


Anthony Hopkins is also playing The Master of Suspense this year in a film called Hitchcock. Which other historical figure did Toby Jones portray in Infamous, only to be overshadowed by a more glamorous Hollywood production starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman?

a. Tony Blair

b. L. Ron Hubbard

c. Truman Capote
