Author Camille Paglia talks about the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film The Birds. To mark the film's 35th anniversary, Paglia has written a new book, also titled The Birds. Paglia takes issue with critics of that day, who criticized actress Tippi Hedron''s debut performance, as well as with feminists of today who paint Hitchcock as a misogynist.
