In her teens, Tippi Hedren made her film debut in the 1950 film THE PRETTY GIRL.

Alfred Hitchcock discovered Tippi Hedren while she was modeling and doing a commercial on the TODAY SHOW, in 1952. In 1963, Hitchcock cast Tippi Hedren in THE BIRDS. While filming THE BIRDS in 1963, Tippi Hedren was really cut in the face by a bird in one of the shots. Hitchcock praised her; he also told the Associated Press: "Tippi Hedren is really remarkable. She's already reaching the lows and highs of terror." For Tippi Hedren's performance in THE BIRDS, she earned a Golden Globe award.

Devoted most of her time and effort to charitable causes; Tippi Hedren is a volunteer International Relief Coordinator for "Food for the Hungry".

At the end of shooting MR. KINGSTREET'S WAR, in 1973, Tippi Hedren discovered that the big cats used in the production had no place to go. This prompted her to obtain a parcel of land on her own to establish a home with a natural setting for retired big cats. She named it Shambala and it exists to this day.
