Oh, I don't necessarily disagree with your opinion of the movie, farmer. The Tippi Hedron role is demeaning to women, though quite typical for the time. But, then, so was the Janet Leigh role in Psycho
. That was Hitchcock's style. He was always on the lookout for young very vulnerable looking actresses. That's not the point. Even if you absolutely despise the movie, you have to admit that any re-make would make it a different movie. That's all I'm saying. And, of course, all the critics and reviewers who loved the Hitchcock original would immediately be comparing the remake to the original and panning the hell out of it. As I say, it would be better to make a really good adaptation of the Daphne Maurier story, "The Birds", but then call it something else.
