According to some, Tippi Hedren's greatest contribution to the world of skin is the creation of her daughter Melanie Griffith. True, but don't shortchange this blonde beauty's legacy to lust. After spending a few years on the fashion-modeling circuit in the '50s, young Tippi was discovered by the great director Alfred Hitchcock, who gave her the lead role in his classic thriller The Birds (1963), and her career took flight. (He tried to bed the beauty too, but that wasn't as successful.) Tippi went on to appear in a number of notable films, including Hitchcock's Marnie (1964) and Charlie Chaplin's A Countess from Hong Kong (1967). By the '70s, Tippi turned her attention to saving wild animals. It's a noble cause, but there are wild audiences that need saving too. Those beasts howled when Tippi teamed up with her daughter, such as in Pacific Heights (1990)--two sweets for the price of one. But their breast collaboration is moist definitely the free-love hippie flick The Harrad Experiment (1973). The film is chock full of nudity, although Tippi and Melanie show nary an inch of skin . . . boohoo. It was, however, the closest that Tippi ever got to a nude scene. She posed in no more than her skivvies and bra in one scene that is a teat for the eyes.
