I’m pretty much wigging out over the tremendousness of the trailer for the ‘Behind The Candelabra‘, the story of Liberace (played by Michael Douglas) and his paid gigolo long-time boyfriend and chauffeur, Scott Thorson (effortlessly portrayed by Matt Damon).  Good LORT this is going to be a CLASSIC.

Take a look at the clip, won’t you?

 

Honestly. I could watch that 90 second trailer on a gotdamb loop.  Get out you feathers and furs and get IN jacuzzi tubs, because THIS will be EHHHH-PIC.

(NONE of this has been written with a drop of sarcasm, by the by. Did you SEE pretty-girl Rob Lowe??)  I’ve got the vapors.

Just in time for Halloween, HBO brings us The Girl starring Sienna Miller and Toby Jones.

Sienna Miller  (l) as Tippi Hedren (r)

Miller plays Tippi Hedren (today appears to be my Hitchcock blonde day) and the movie depicts her plight at the hands of Alfred Hitchcock, who directed her in The Birds and Marnie. According to this version of events, Hedren was harassed and essentially black listed after she failed to acquiesce to an affair with the Psycho filmmaker.

I will be tuning in because as a child I was absolutely horrified by the story of Hitchcock sending Tippi’s daughter, then 8-year old Melanie Griffith, a doll of her mother. Inside a COFFIN.  Let’s hope in 50 years  Rooney Mara doesn’t have her own docudrama.

Anyway, its been awhile since I’ve seen  Sienna Miller who has been flying pretty low since giving birth three months ago. She was photographed earlier today in NYC’s Central Park with her bundle of joy. Coincidence or publicity still? Only management knows for sure.

Hitchcock will also be the subject of a theatrical release starring Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. This one explores the relationship between the director and his wife, particularly during the making of Psycho.

The Girl will premiere on HBO on October 20, 2012.

Hitchcock is scheduled for release on November 23, 2012.
