1. Happy Halloween, Beware of The Birds

    Daphne du Maurier apparently did not like Alfred Hitchcock’s film version of her short story, “The Birds,” included in our collection of her short stories, Don’t Look Now(However, his version of Rebecca, based on du Maurier’s novel, “delighted her” according to her biographer). The change of scenery from Cornwall, England to Northern California may have had something to do with it, as might the Oedipal relationships implicit in the film and nowhere in the story. Whatever the differences, both are bound to scare one silly, and make one look differently at the birds flying past one’s head.
