Alfred Hitchcock’s “Birds” – on Shirts and on Stage!

5 08 2011

Check out these two great new tributes to the classic Alfred Hitchcock film “The Birds,” both of which you’re definitely going to dig!

The first, which I spotted while busily running around at Comic-Con International: San Diego a couple of weeks back (I was working!), is this awesome T-shirt that recreates Hitch’s famous silhouette in bird form. It’s available from the company Super7. They have lots of other nifty shirts, toys, books and more, but of course I was drawn to this particular item, which I was told was one of their hottest sellers at the con. You can order it here – but first, look how cool!

In a related story, I am driving to Buffalo, NY, on Saturday, August 6, for a family event – and by sheer coincidence, I learned that this is the date the stage show “The Birds Attack!” opens at the Buffalo United Artists Theater. It stars local stage legend Jimmy Janowski, who created this adaptation of the movie, as Melanie Daniels, the role made famous by Tippi Hedren – green suit and all. The show runs Saturdays and Sundays in August, and I hope to see it on the sixth so I can write a review for this Hitchblog. It sounds like it’s going to be a hoot, and you can read more about it in this article from Buffalo’s ArtVoice – and watch for my review coming up soon – if I can get tickets for Saturday night, that is!
