Trivia: The Birds

  • Enforced Method Acting: Hitchcock's efforts to induce a genuine fear reaction from Tippi Hedren by throwing live birds at her (rather than the promised mechanical ones) led to her being ordered a week's rest, as she had started getting nightmares "filled with flapping wings".
  • Similarly Named Works: The Birds: A horror movie by Alfred Hitchcock, and a comedy by Aristophanes.
