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
  • In one of the first scenes, Tippi Hedren can be seen crossing the street to the pet shop. As she does, she disappears behind a sign for a moment and reappears on the other side. Alfred Hitchcock so hated working on location that he used this moment to seamlessly cut to a studio shot.
  • Before the release of the film, Tippi Hedren was featured on the cover of Look magazine with the caption "Hitchcock's new Grace Kelly."
  • The film does not finish with the usual "THE END" title because Alfred Hitchcock wanted to give the impression of unending terror.
  • When audiences left the film's UK premiere at the Odeon, Leicester Square, London, they were greeted by the sound of screeching and flapping birds from loudspeakers hidden in the trees to scare them further.
