Sealyham Terrier Dog Names in Pop Culture
It takes two? It does this time! These Sealyham Terrier twin females actually performed significant male roles in a movie you may remember.
The aforementioned film features the parts of two famous male Sealyham Terriers which belonged to none other than the late but forever world-renowned film director, Alfred Hitchcock. That’s right! The drama Hitchcock simply had to have the breed represented. After all, the unforgettable filmmaker adored them.
Even after Hitchcock moved to the United States, he kept a piece of the UK with him: his beloved native Sealyham Terriers, which he called Geoffrey and Stanley, actually helped make the breed very popular in Hollywood. Actors and actresses like Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bette Davis all eventually acquired Sealies of their own. It should be noted that a Sealy named Mr. Jenkins accompanied Hitchcock during his journey to America and that he cared for yet another Sealy named Sarah.
Though it might be difficult for us to imagine this eternally famous director who gave us Psycho and The Birds cuddling up and taking in the daily news with agreeable Sealyhams, he indeed did so. This mastermind who provided us with timeless, haunting thrillers that dwell in the dark depths of the psyche and our worst fears actually possessed somewhat of a soft side. The sinister walls came crashing down when he walked into his home to meet his treasured Sealies. Maybe it’s easier to envision a tired film man kicking up his feet after a long day of incessant voices and opinions, calling out to both Geoffrey and Stanley, and relaxing into the evening with his companions nestled close to his side.
But back to Rapunzel and Cinderella, our pop culture stars. When Hitchcock was made, the crew didn’t dare proceed without rounding up two Sealyham Terriers. How else could Anthony Hopkins portray the role of Hitchcock truthfully and convincingly? What the crew discovered was the dogs were quite rare. In fact, only 75 Sealyham Terriers were located in the search. Saddened by this fact and hopeful to give the breed some spotlight, Rapunzel and Cinderella’s owner, Lisa Inman-Lee, was happy to send her girls in to represent Geoffrey and Stanley.
After Alfred Hitchcock’s cameo in The Birds, in which he briefly walks with his two Sealyham Terriers, these striking and charming studs are forever associated with him. Yes, you might hear fans of the director (as well as of Sealies) refer to the four-legged friend as a “Hitchcock Terrier.” In closing, thanks to Rapunzel and Cinderella not only for their roles as Geoffrey and Stanley but also for reminding us of the important roles furry family members play in the lives of even the most successful humans.
