Release Date Rewind : The Birds


Jeff Bugajski returns to talk Hitchcock with Mark in this 50th episode of the podcast! They're flying to a different bay this time - Bodega Bay - to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic romance-turned-horror film The Birds. Alfred Hitchcock's follow-up to Psycho, based on Daphne Du Maurier's short story and a real-life attack in California, was released in theaters on March 28, 1963, and this time the blood is in beautiful color! They talk about stylish Tippi Hedren in her film debut as Melanie Daniels, a woman who finds herself the target of a cockblocking killer flock, when she just wanted to stalk Rod Taylor's handsome lawyer Mitch Brenner like any normal gal! Meanwhile, Tippi was the target of Hitchcock's obsession in real life while making the film. Plus, they plan Jeff's costume for next Halloween.

Release Date Rewind
Movie nerd, filmmaker, and anniversary celebrator Mark J. Parker brings a friend on each episode to discuss movies (and sometimes TV shows and music) that are hitting milestone anniversaries of release that month. Think 20th anniversary, 25th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 75th, you get it! They'll dive in together, discussing fun facts, memorable moments, and what makes these movies worth a rewind all these years later. Let's get nostalgic! The podcast logo is created by Greg Clements. The theme song is the instrumental version of "Dance This Out" by singer/songwriter Kyle Motsinger and producer Smoke and Mirrors.
