Hitchcock Heroine Update

Alfred Hitchcock was well known for his penchant for casting cool, blonde actresses as heroines in his movies. Doris Day, who passed away one month ago today (on May 13), while known more as a sunny blonde, also appeared in an Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Man Who Knew Too Much". Below is a list originally published in 2004, showing the then current status of various Hitchcock actresses, including Doris Day. The list has been updated with current information. The only one on the list who has passed away since the list was originally published 15 years ago is Doris Day. Otherwise only the current ages have changed. (Neither the list of actresses, nor the movies they appeared in is intended to be comprehensive. They are just examples.)
