The birds poster

Alfred Hitchcock's cameo in The Birds, leading a pair of dogs out of the (fictional) San Francisco pet store.

The Birds is a 1963 suspense/horror film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, loosely based on the 1952 story "The Birds" by Daphne du Maurier. It depicts Bodega Bay, California which is, suddenly and for unexplained reasons, the subject of a series of widespread and violent bird attacks over the course of a few days.

At the start of the movie, young socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) meets Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), a lawyer, in a (fictional) San Francisco pet shop in the Union Square area. Hitchcock, known for his cameo appearances in his own movies, appears in this sequence, leaving the pet shop walking a pair of dogs.
