One of my favorites. I remember there was talk of a remake with George Clooney and Naomi Watts years ago but nothing transpired.

I loved this film growing up. It used to proper scare me!

Apparent poor Tippi went through hell making this lol. Hitchcock wasn't very nice to her. Even going as far as using real birds without telling her.

Love seeing threads like this, good to know there are people who appreciate classic films.
As for the Birds never really liked it. No celluloid magic here and It's one of my least favorite Hitchcock films. Tippi never was much of an believable actress and was so bad here but to be fair she was slightly better in Marnie.

Glad you like it, more movies to come :) all from last century I suppose :)

I liked Tippis performance in this movie overall :)

And I watched the movie for the first time this year, it's great but yes, not Hitchcock's best from those I watched yet

One of Hitchcock's best films, Tippi Hedren was not the best actress but she did fine in this (especially considering the way he treated her during filming), Jessica Tandy was great as ever, that scene she has in the bedroom is not one I'll forget

Seems that the BBC are set to do a remake but it will follow the book more closely ie will be set in Cornwall and focus on a farmhand and his family (as in the book)

I do know it went on to inspire Steven Speilberg when he did Jaws.
