I am wasting more time even than usual because of the Hitchcock festival on
AMC cable channel this weekend; thought I'd call it to people's attention, as
I bet there are some Hitchcock fans out there.
In a break for a documentary on film restoration, saw an interview with
Forrest J Ackerman - the uncrowned king of fandom. :)
Last night I watched THE BIRDS for the first time ever and was riveted -
fascinating film. Can we call it mythopoeic? I saw it primarily as a
parable of the fundamental human vulnerability that we'd all like to forget.
The cameo role was great - Hitch parading out of the pet store at the
opening, holding the leashes of (his own) two white dogs.
