The Virginia Film Festival is underway, offering the public more than a hundred films and lectures over the weekend. Friday night's show promises to be a thriller for many fans of Alfred Hitchcock, with a film that was released 50 years ago, and events are planned in Richmond and Charlottesville to mark the occasion.
The 1963 trailer for The Birds begins with a mild mannered introduction.
“How do you do? My name is Alfred Hitchcock, and I would like to tell you about my forthcoming lectures. It is about the birds, and their age-long relationship with man.”
