Production Notes:

  • Theatrical Release: March 28, 1963.
  • Filmed on location in Bodega Bay and San Francisco, California.
  • Hitchcock cameo: Hitchcock can be seen leaving the pet shop carrying two small dogs.
  • Screenwriter Evan Hunter also uses the name Ed McBain.
  • The film marked the debut for Tippi Hedren.
  • Ray Berwick trained all the birds for the film.
  • The film's original ending was reportedly more pessimistic: Mitch and Melanie drive from Bodega Bay, assuming that the birds have only overtaken that one small town. Upon arriving in San Francisco, however, they catch sight of the Golden Gate Bridge, completely covered in birds.
  • A very young Morgan Brittany appears in the film under the name Suzanne Cupito.
