The Birds

United States - 1963
Director - Alfred Hitchcock
MCA Home Video, 1985, VHS
Run Time - 1 hour, 59 minutes

Unceremoniously remade by Mexican biologist Rene Cardona Jr. in 1987 under the title Beaks: The Movie, Hitchcock's The Birds was itself based on a short story in which the birds were a metaphor for the sinister specter of communism. That's deep.
