Synopsis:

"The Birds are Coming." Almost 50 years ago, Alfred Hitchcock launched a publicity campaign for his new project based on those four words. NCM Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures bring this American classic back to the big screen for only one night in celebration of Universal's 100th Anniversary. TCM Host Robert Osborne will introduce "Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds" and share with you an exclusive interview he conducted with the film's star Tippi Hedren specifically for this special presentation. Hedren will not only reveal how "Hitch" hand-picked her to play the part of Melanie Daniels but also how the movie that launched her career -- ended it. Osborne will even reach deep into the TCM Archives to share more on set stories from Hedren's co-stars: Rod Taylor and Suzanne Pleshette.
