Tippi Hendren goes to the Birds after 45 years

On September 14, 2008. The Jules Verne Festival Celebrated the 45th Anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" with Tippi Hendren as the celebrated guest. Held at The Edison in Downtown Los Angeles, guests were treated to a q&a with Tippi and moderated by Ben Mankiewicz.

Tippi Hendren along with the Jules Verne Festival board members Frederic Dieudonne and Jean Christophe Jeauffre make their way down to the main floor of The Edison.

Tippi was also presented with the Jules Verne Legendaire Award for her role in "The Birds." Hendren definitely looked lovely as she sported a two piece dress outfit. Along with the q&a there was a presentation of the brand new Birds Barbie Doll to Tippi Hedren !
