The Birds (1963)

Who's In It: Rod Taylor (Long John Silver, The Time Machine, 101 Dalmatians), Jessica Tandy (Cocoon, Driving Miss Daisy, Fried Green Tomatoes), Suzanne Pleshette (Blackbeard's Ghost, Support Your Local Gunfighter, The Bob Newhart Show), and Tippi Hedren (Marnie).

What It's About: A woman (Hedren) plays the world's dumbest practical joke and finds herself in a small town during the onset of the Bird War.

How It Is: There are some good, dramatic moments in it, but I can't get into the plot, the main characters, or especially the ending. I went into detail about it on Mystery Movie Night.

Rating: 1.5 out of 5 recreating ravens

You forgot to mention Veronica Cartwright - Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers ...

I like this movie just because it's a total freak out when you're driving in the country and see massive bird clouds.

I *did* forget to mention her! That was super fun seeing her as a kid.
