A new book has come out about the making of Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. It’s by Tony Lee Moral who did a terrific book about the making of “Marnie” a while back. This is also excellent – a thorough and entertaining look at Hitch’s last uncontested classic. Full disclosure: I helped Tony with some research (he generously thanked me in the opening spiel, which was cool) but I would praise it anyway. I wish I’d had it available when I was writing my Rod Taylor bio.
