EVA MARIE SAINT, KIM NOVAK, TIPPI HEDREN
and GRACE KELLY are sitting at a semi-circular booth.
We see Grace Kelly in the foreground
with the other women to her right.
LONG LENS CLOSE UP of Grace Kelly.
The camera begins to DOLLY IN and
at the same time ZOOM OUT.
We hear her thinking.
There was me, that is, Alexa,
and my three gal pals,
that is, Shelly, Shelby and Chic,
Chic being really chic,
and we sat in Rick's Place
chatting about what to do
with the evening, an awful,

After “The Birds,” Alfred Hitchcock
tried to lure Grace Kelly back to the
film world by offering her the starring role
in his own adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s
“A Clockwork Orange.” Sadly, the pressures
of being a real life princess kept Grace Kelly
from returning to the director
who had made her famous.
