Directed by: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: Jessica Tandy, Rod Taylor, Suzanne Pleshette, Tippi Hedren
Genres: Fantasy, Horror, Romance, Thriller
Continuity mistake: A blond boy in a light brown shirt is attacked by a crow and goes from having no blood on his neck to having a lot of blood smeared on his neck between shots.
Continuity mistake: After Melanie signs the card to Cathy she never puts her left glove back on. We're able to see her drive down uninterrupted to the boat and she never puts it on, but when she walks out of the car to the boat it's back on.
Continuity mistake: When Lydia says to Melanie, "Do you think Cathy's alright at the school?" the two pictures hanging above her head disappear the next time we see her.
Trivia: When we see the school children running away from the birds, they were actually running on a treadmill with Bodega Bay footage added in the background.
Trivia: When Melanie first walks into the pet shop, you can see Alfred Hitchcock walk out. He is walking two small dogs. They were his real pets.
Trivia: There is no then-usual "THE END" title card as Alfred Hitchcock wanted to imply that the terror would continue without end.
Question: What is said on the radio in the car at the end of the film?
Chosen answer: "The bird attacks have subsided for the time being. Bodega Bay seems to be the centre, though there are reports of minor attacks on Sebastopol and a few on Santa Rosa. Bodega Bay has been cordoned off by roadblocks. Most of the townspeople have managed to get out, but there are still some isolated pockets of people. No decision has been arrived at yet as to what the next step will be, but there's been some discussion as to whether the military should go in. It appears that the bird attacks come in waves, with long intervals between. The reason for this does not seem clear as yet."
