Icy blondes

“Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that show up bloody footprints” - Alfred Hitchcock

The well-known US film critic Roger Ebert observed that Alfred Hitchcock leading ladies, “reflected the same qualities over and over again: They were blond. They were icy and remote. They were imprisoned in costumes that subtly combined fashion and fetishism. They mesmerized the men, who often had physical or physiological handicaps”.
