This comes from 1958 when she was making her classic North by Northwest -- and what I particularly love (as a writer and because it's so her), when Alfred Hitchock's name is mentioned in the conversation at the end, she makes sure to give credit to the screenwriter Ernest Lehman. It's also worth noting that while host John Daly refers to her at one point as "Mrs. Hayden", they had been married for six years at that point – and had another 59 years go go, being married for 65 years until Dr. Hayden passed away in 2016. Happily, she is still around at age 94. . (six years at that point, 59)
I go into more detail here about all that because I had the chance to not just meet her about 15 years ago, but talk with her for a while, and she was an absolute, utter joy. (And from what I've since been told by others, that's who she is. And it's how she comes across in this clip.) The odd thing -- and I must embarrass myself to tell this properly about how lovely she was, but then I've told the story here before, so the embarrassment is already out there -- is that we talked for almost 10 minutes and for most of that time...I had absolutely no idea who I was talking to. Just having a nice, friendly conversation. It was at a "viewing party" for a friend who had written a TV movie being shown that night, and I was sitting on a sofa when she came over. In fairness to myself, I'm terrible with faces, and have a very light case of "face blindness," I think. And she was 80 years old, not the 30-year-old Eva Marie Saint we recall from her stardom years. Yes, I should have known better, but I didn't. So, to me, I was just talking with this sweet, friendly lady without an ounce of showiness who was asking far more questions about me than I of her -- and I was asking her plenty of questions -- and just talking about things in general. Finally, as we neared the end of our conversation, thank heavens it at last clicked in with me and I realized, "Oh, my God, this is Eva Marie Saint!!!" So, at least I did figure it out while talking with her. Just barely, but it counts. And she was an absolute treat.
As you'll see in this video.
