The Birds

"...and remember, the next scream you hear may be your own!"

Chic socialite Melanie Daniels enjoys a passing flirtation with an eligible attorney in a San Francisco pet shop and, on an impulse, follows him to his hometown bearing a gift of lovebirds. But upon her arrival, the bird population runs amok. Suddenly, the townsfolk face a massive avian onslaught, with the feathered fiends inexplicably attacking people all over Bodega Bay.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Voted seventh-scariest movie of all time by a poll carried out on the British public by Channel 5 and "The Times" in 2006.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Melanie is lying unconscious after the birds attack her, Mitch gives her some brandy to 'alleviate' the pain. However, in no way should he be giving her this because any liquids given to an unconscious person could cause them to choke, and they should especially not be given any alcohol.
  • Alhough there is no musical score for this film, composer and Alfred Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann is credited as a sound consultant.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Annie and Melanie open the door to Annie's house when a seagull hits it. As the door opens houses are clearly visible across the road, after they look up again from the dead bird the view is now the bay with no houses at all.
