The Finest Classic Film Scenes #1: Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from?

The Finest Classic Film Scenes is a new series here on my blog in which I will post great (when I use the word great I mean anything from Greta Garbo dying in Camille to Greer Garson hanging off the curtains in a French music hall in Julia Misbehaves. You have been warned.) classic film scenes probably once a week, maybe more, maybe less. They may be moving, melodramatic, funny, tear-jerking, or ridiculous, but they'll always be golden because, hey, that's the way classic films roll. Anyway, without further ado, I give you the first instalment!

*possible spoilers ahead*

Yes, it's the restaurant scene from The Birds. If you've seen the film, you'll understand how very creepy and haunting this scene is. The ridiculous, crazy woman (who is clearly too old to have children that young) shouting "I THINK YOU'RE EVIL!" always sends shivers up and down my spine because, secretly, I always thought that Melanie Daniels was a devil in disguise or something. 


  1. What a way cool idea Sophie! And loved that you chose this scene from The Birds to start off your series. I for one will check in regularly to see what else you will post. Well I check in to your blog regularly anyway but now even more so. Awesome!

  2. "The ridiculous, crazy woman (who is clearly too old to have children that young) ..."

    She looks about right to me. Kids will age you like nothing else!

    I love the idea for this series and look forward to more, more, more.
