Fear of Birds
The other day I watched “Birds” the great 1963 Hitchcock’s classic, about repeated attacks by all kinds of birds on a woman (Tippi Hedren) in an isolated California community.
It was amazing to see the great director creating a real sense of fear, from a subject that is as ordinary as can be.
I mean, Birds are to be looked at and admired.
Birds are not to be feared.
But then that was before there was the Bird-Flu!
I wonder what the master director cold have done with the H5N1 virus!
Here is a short clip about a guy who is hand feeding seagulls!
“Hand Fed Seagull By Scarpace”.
Hitchcock would have loved it:
