#22 – Tippi Hedren’s Wax Figure in a Coffin
Not too long after her sixth birthday, Melanie Griffith, daughter of the late actress and Alfred Hitchcock’s muse Tippi Hedren, was given a rather bizarre gift from Hitchcock himself. His gift for Melanie was so bizarre that the poor girl almost fainted when she saw it.
The gift that Alfred gave Melanie for her sixth birthday was a wax figure of her late mother Tippi in a coffin! The figure wore the same costume that Tippi wore in the legendary horror flick “The Birds.” Wow, Alfred was such a prankster!
