The Birds (The Birds) is an american film, genre horror-thriller, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and released on the screens in the u.s. in march 1963. 48th feature film of Hitchcock, it is inspired by the novel of the same name by novelist british Daphne du Maurier published in 1952 and adapted by screenwriter Evan Hunter.

With Tippi Hedren and Rod Taylor in the lead roles, the film narrates the attacks of unexplained of birds of all species on the inhabitants of the small town of Bodega Bay in California. It took three years of preparation before the shooting : thousands of birds were prepared for the occasion and the use of many special effects helped to create an atmosphere of terror.

In the filmography of Alfred Hitchcock, it presents itself as a film hinge because it is regarded as the last great film of his career.
