...Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary doomsday fantasia is cinema’s greatest disaster movie, and one of the director’s finest works. Tippi Hedren, in her screen debut, plays Melanie, a smitten San Francisco socialite who pursues bachelor lawyer Mitch (Rod Taylor) back to his sleepy hometown of Bodega Bay - a pretty enough place, really, until our fine feathered friends start taking major ornithological offence at humankind. Based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier, The Birds was Hitchcock’s most elaborate technical undertaking; showcasing some 371 trick shots, the talents of renowned Disney animator Ub Iwerks, and an innovative electronic soundtrack, the movie is a tour de- force of special effects technology. (Jim Sinclair, Pacific Cinematheque).
