Loosely based on the 1952 du Maurier novelette, Hitchcock’s 49th film is one of his most enduringly strange and expertly constructed. Wealthy San Francisco socialite Melanie (Tippi Hedren) follows love interest lawyer Mitch (Rod Taylor) to a small Northern California town to play out a practical joke. Soon after her arrival, a seagull attacks her. The situation in the sleepy town slowly takes a turn for the bizarre before a terrifying climax, as birds of all kinds inexplicably begin to attack in a frenzied phenomenon.
