Movie-A-Day #19: The Birds (1963).

January 19, 2011

Happy birthday, Tippi Hedren! The former model was discovered by Alfred Hitchcock, who cast her as an unknown in his nature-run-amok film
“The Birds,”
which is still her greatest role. The following year she also starred in Hitchcock’s “Marnie” before settling into a long career of minor television and film roles. She may have peaked early, but doing so in classic style like in “The Birds” is the way to do it. And, of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that Hedren is also the mother of another memorable actress, Melanie Griffith.
