    Description

    The Birds (Universal International, 1963). British Quad (30" X 40").
    Director Alfred Hitchcock proudly proclaims on this impressive British quad format that The Birds "Could be the most terrifying motion picture I have ever made!" Quite an assertion, given he already had Psycho under his belt when he made this 1963 thriller. Hitchcock does, in fact, elevate the suspense level in this horrifying tale that begins with Tippi Hedren, a socialite, pursuing potential boyfriend Rod Taylor to a sleepy seaside town where his mother and sister live. Not long after, the feathered population becomes aggressive, and begins to attack the community. The British quad features basically the same artwork as the American paper, nicely integrated into the horizontal format. The poster has had touchup to the folds, a chip and tear in the bottom right corner, a chip in the bottom border, and a chip in the left border that extends into the black. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
