The Birds 1963

From Amazon: Vacationing in northern California, Alfred Hitchcock was struck by a story in a Santa Cruz newspaper: "Seabird Invasion Hits Coastal Homes." From this peculiar incident, and his memory of a short story by Daphne du Maurier, the master of suspense created one of his strangest and most terrifying films. The Birds follows a chic blonde, Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren), as she travels to the coastal town of Bodega Bay to hook up with a rugged fellow (Rod Taylor) she's only just met.

Director Alfred Hitchcock certainly proved, beyond a...

The film itself got an Oscar nomination for effects.

Along with Taylor and Hedren, the film featured a fine...

The Birds Movie Review by Jarrod (11/9/2007)

'The Birds' is arguably Hitchcock's most commercialized, mainstream film, and one of his most famous and popular; when I ask someone if they know Hitchcock, 'The Birds' is usually the first (and in some cases, the only) movie that pops into his or her mind. It is undoubtedly a stylistic triumph, the sound effects, the...

The Birds Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/10/2007)

I am forever afraid of birds because of this movie. Hitchcock plays with the idea that birds could actually overtake humans (think about it! they totally could!) and kill us all. This film is terrifying when it could have been silly, because Tippi Hedren is so believable and because of the sound effects and editing...
