Kim Novak: "I Want To Report A Rape"

Categories: Film

That's how the sumptuous screen star of the 1950s started her press release (also an ad in a trade magazine) about how she feels her legacy has been plundered by the movie The Artist.

And you can't say that didn't grab your attention!

Kim feels the use of Bernard Herrmann's classic music from Vertigo by The Artist's director is a slap in the face of Herrmann, Hitchcock, Jimmy Stewart, and herself.

(That's two slaps for her, I guess, considering the sort of dual role she played in the movie.)

As of now, The Artist crew is ... well ... silent.

Novak is apparently unaware that the love theme from"Vertigo" was lifted by film composer Bernard Herrmann from Wagner's"Tristan und Isolde." For more on Hitchcock, plus a tribute song,check out my blog at http://blogs.forbes.com/craigs...

All i can say is that I'm glad it was a PR stunt and not real. Although she does look a little like a 1950's porn star, so i wouldn't be surprised if someone would want her.. I'd lend her my iPhone any day of the week

When I saw the headline, I wondered, "Who did Kim rape?"

Maybe Ryan Murphy can have the Glee kids singing the "Vertigo" theme. THAT would get ratings.

That jackass Ryan Murphy also stole the Vertigo music for that tragic (someone rescue Jessica Lange) American Horror Story, or as I call it: Another Piece of Shit TV show from the slow brain of a jackass with too much money.

It kills me to hear that score on that show...

I feel like she's overstating it a bit to use "rape" to grab attention. Bad Kim!
