and instead of quitting and going back to obscurity, she stuck and He , Hitchcock made her famous. So say thank you and be grateful, instead of smearing his name after death.

Hehe. Talk about "historic abuse" allegation. Truth is back then lots of famous directors and musicians and entertainers were almost proud of their ability to use their fame to overawe and sexually take advantage of young women and even girls. Its in plenty of their biographies and all.

Its actually not same example, she was the object of his desire and his muse , he took her from average unknown actress and made her great using his talent . All he wanted in return is her affection. That is quite fair trade off.

I see the Neanderthals are crawling out of their closets. She owed him absolutely nothing in sexual terms. In return for his part in making her famous he got back enough in that she helped him make movies that kept him famous. That was fair enough.

So if a man helps a woman in some way it's fine for him to demand sex? Absolutely disgusting.

Educator she didnt help him to make anything.. he is genius and could find another starlet easy enough. nobody says that she owed him anything and yes his sexual advances are absolutely reasonable, he didnt rape her or anything. Get over the PC bullshit ,but then you cant .. you are just an english teacher that will never amount to greatness.

Hey Einz She said he raped her. were you there? If a rich man hire a girl do you imply he has the right to rape her? Are you Donald Trump using a nick name or what?

The tired, old, women are interchangeable argument. But she seems to have been the one he wanted.

Sadly your powers of deduction are as poor as your attitude towards women and your manners.

Not saying true or false on any of it myself, but almost all of the 'Controversy' section of the wikipedia page for 'The Girl' is describing people contradicting her account of harrassment. Including quotes from other leading ladies who were also blonde and who said they had no problem from him (I mentioned "blonde" because according to the theory expressed somewhere he only hired blonde leading ladies, theoretically because he was attracted to blondes).

Also noted that she complained that when she refused to work with him he still held her to her contract for two years so that she couldn't work elsewhere. I think she can't really blame him for that (unless there really was harassment).

I have a Facebook friend who volunteers at Tippy's lion sanctuary in California. Tippy is no average woman. One does wonder why she didn't sic her then boyfriend on Hitch to shut him down.
