DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK
CAST: TIPPI HEDREN, ROD TAYLOR, SUZANNE PLESHETTE
It’s business as usual in the coastal California town of Bodega Bay, when one day our fine feathered friends up and go on the offense. One of Hitchcock’s supreme master-builder achievements plays on our fear of nature’s capricious cruelty, with San Francisco transplants Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor thrown together to try to survive the avian onslaught. Boasts some of Hitch’s most perfect set pieces, mixing location shoots and extraordinary back-lot artifice, as well as his most punishing.
We are screening a special Universal Centennial 35mm print of The Birds.
