Tippi Hedren Honors Michael Jackson

Tippi Hedren is the Hitchcock star of The Birds and Marnie (in which she was a klepto who was afraid of the color red), and she also worked with Chaplin, albeit in the comedy misfire A Countess From Hong Kong.
She's further known as the mom to Oscar-nominated Melanie Griffith, and I believe she was close with some members of Michael Jackson's animal kingdom.
Well, apparently Tippi's not really afraid of the color red because she's lovin' the "Thriller" jacket!
I just got this release:
"Legendary actress and supporter of The Shambala Preserve Tippi Hedren strikes a pose at the Juliens Auctions Music Icons Preview Party on Wednesday, June 22.
"The popular entertainment and celebrity auction house will auction several Michael Jackson personal items this weekend including the Michael Jackson video worn 'Thriller' jacket.
"A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the famous jacket will benefit The Shambala Preserve which is the current home of Jackson's two Bengal tiger 'Thriller' and 'Sabu.'
"The two tigers have been living at The Shambala Preserve since 2006 when Jackson left Neverland Ranch. The 'Thriller' jacket was designed by Deborah Landis."
Anybody want to bid on something that touched Michael Jackson?
