Timeless Classic

I remember the first time I watched The Birds at home as a child. I was so scared I couldn't sleep. Years later, I have watched it over and over and when the opportunity to see it on the big screen presented itself I just had to see it! My boyfriend and I dressed up as Melanie and Mitch and had a blast. The movie was everything I had imagined on the big screen.....more intense, dramatic and frightening and the sounds of the screeching birds was so loud I had to cover my ears. As the children ran down the hill while birds attacked them, I felt as if I were one of them. What a wonderful idea to show this classic Hitchcock film on the big screen.

Todays movies are so fast paced, so loud, so intense, this was a well acted, well dircted movie, like they were and like they should be still. Each scene was well thought out and well done, even the fakey birds with technology today were a scary thing to see.. All the old movies are a delight to see, you dont JUST have to have a pretty face.

It was fantastic to see this Hitchcock masterpiece on the big screen. It starts at a slow pace and then builds to a frenzy. The visual effects are stunning,rivaling those of todays's. It has a fine cast and a great story. It really makes you wonder what will happen if nature did rise up against man.

It would be an exageration I'm sure to say I've seen The Birds a hundred times. But I have watched it just about every chance I had. Never though did I experienc the level of tension and agitation I felt while watching it on the Big Screen. Thank you TCM for this special presentation!
