Dive into Alfred Hitchcock's classic THE BIRDS and its strange and unsettling opening title sequence. It's a rare beast indeed, featuring dark shapes, eerie electronic noises — and no music!
We take a look at the visual work of designer James S. Pollak and the aural contributions of Oskar Sala, Remi Gassmann, and longtime Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann, with analyses and insight from the writing of cultural critic and author Camille Paglia, professor and writer Elisabeth Weis, and others.
