We thought we were being so clever with our last Mystery Guest; but you glamour-addicts know a cool blonde when you see one. ("MJBThird" even correctly named the designer of her frock, which gives you some sort of idea of the crowd we're catering to.) MC, who is one of the most fabulous creatures we know, was the first to name "Tippi" Hedren - and, thrillingly, he was aware that Ms. Hedren was initially billed with quotation marks around her first name; publicity materials from the period also refer to her in this manner. Inexplicable and affected - two adjectives we can often apply to our favorite glamour icons!
As a Grand Prize, MC will not be gifted with the stunningly un-chic wardrobe from Marnie (1964); costume designer Rita Riggs had a fabulous name, but a heavy hand. Her most notable other credits are the TV series All in the Family and Sanford and Son, which pretty much says it all.
