In speaking to’s Josh Horowitz about the two upcoming Hitchcock films, The Girl and Hitchcock, Brian DePalma — once described in the late ’70s as a guy who “every other year picks the bones of a dead director and gives his wife a job” — says it seems unfair to tarnish Hitch’s reputation. He’s referring to The Girl, of course — the HBO pic about Hitch’s icky obsession for Tippi Hedren — and not Hitchcock.
