But hated The Birds. Only film of his I didn't like, even a little. Family Plot was more entertaining. Know it's just me.

I seem to recall seeing this picture before, so it may have come out of the publicity dept at some point (though it doesn't look like something that would have been used to actually promote the film). Still a great pic. Is Hitch rolling his eyes because yet another actor - in this case a bird- is asking him "What's my motivation?"

I accidentally put my screen name for the title of my previous post. Duh...

Think I may have seen this before, but it's a cool shot and makes me totally psyched for Halloween. Thanks Quint

And I had to chuckle seeing Hitch's shadow being cast upon the wall when Norman Bates enter's "Mother"'s room after returning to his house.

I NEED that Empire book! :)

OK, for the kids: Alfred Hitchcock would introduce every show and be about to die some sort of gruesome death every week. He had a great sense of humor.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents cranked up just as I was entering first grade. Even at that tender age he quickly became one of my all-time favorites, on both small and big screens. My folks were fans too, so I had the good fortune to see THE BIRDS, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, and THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH on the big screen (maybe more, too long ago to remember 'em all!) His passing was like losing a favorite uncle. I too have seen this pic before, but that's OK; there were a lot of great publicity shots from THE BIRDS and this is a great one.

Fuck Stephen King, Fuck John Carpenter and Fuck Clive Barker. It's all about Alfred Hitchcock, man! I love Hitchcock stories! "The Birds" is a masterpiece!

... that crow's carcass is probably now in Steve Martin's private collection of "Birds" memorbilia.

For once CG would be a benefit, rather than a distraction.

I'm on it. Choosing between over 350 entries (some of them sending as many 25 pics per entry) is taking me some time. But I will have a winner for you folks very soon!

Absolute gem. Thanks for posting it.

Where is he so he can tell us all how overrated Hitchcock is?
Oct. 21, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST
That seems a little much - and kinda unfair. I sent two myself. I chose quality over quantity.

Simple. Only person to come close is De Palma but of course De Palma's entire style is based on Hitchcock. He just brought it to the next logical next which is more violence & Nudity

It's either a fake bird stood up with a wire or it's a real bird tied to the sill.

Fuuuuuuuuuuccck. It makes "The Room" look like Citizen Kane.

can you not like THE BIRDS? i demand an explanation.

I also used to read my aunt's copies of the Hitchcock magazine and all the scary stories were great. He had an anthology book I found in my middle school library and it had a great story about giant man eating snails on an island and a guy crashes his boat on this island and is immediately bitten by one of these 10 foot tall snails and he spends the rest of the story stumbling slowly away from these things until one finally, slowly catches up to him as a rescue ship arrives. Sorry, spoiler.

I just find them boring and sometimes silly. There are some good sequences but that's it.

The Thing (1982), Nightmare on Elm Street, Creepshow, The Dark Knight..just a handful of post 1979 movies selected for Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day. It gets old when fucking morons gloss over details to make a sarcastic generalization that doesn't even turn out to be true.
Oct. 22, 2010, 4:03 p.m. CST
However, the four I just cited are all after 1980, my point still stands, and you're still a moron.

Tippi Hedren can't act, and the villains are fucking birds. peace.
