Book Vs Movie

The Birds

The Daphne du Maurier 1951 Short Story Vs the Alfred Hitchcock 1963 Classic Film

The Margos both have stories about the first time we saw the Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds and knew they also wanted to return to the fascinating life of Daphne du Maurier so it made sense to include her short story in our season of “scary” books and movies.

The author was famously NOT a fan of the Hitchcock adaptation as she felt her story taking place in post War England and not in Northern California was important to the actual meaning behind her message. Which version do we better?

Click the link at the bottom to find out.

In this ep the Margos discuss:

  • The interesting life of Daphne du Maurier
  • The cast of the movie including Tippi Hedren (Melanie Daniels,) Rod Taylor (Mitch Brenner,) Jessica Tandy (Lydia Brenner,) Veronica Cartwright (Cathy Brenner,) and Suzanne Pleshette (Annie Hayworth.)
  • The movie The Girl which starred Sienna Miller as Tippi and describes her real life torture working on the film. (Fun fact: Hitch threw REAL BIRDS to attack her for over a week!)
  • The biggest differences between the book and movie
  • Our favorite scenes from the movie

Clips Featured:

  • The Birds  trailer
  • The scene at the schoolyard
  • The “hysterical mother in the diner” (Doreen Lang)
  • Tippi Hedren interviewed for Huff Post in 2011
  • The last scene of the movie
