The Shot

Well here is the shot I have been looking for all night. The color and framing are off (filched from a TV screen, I guess) but it's the only version I could find. It's Suzanne Pleshette in THE BIRDS (which Dr. Theresa and I watched tonight), listening as Tippi Hedren talks on the phone to the man Suzanne Pleshette loves! Out of all the interesting shots in THE BIRDS, somehow it's my favorite. It's emotionally resonant, that's what I would say. It is an emotionally resonant shot. Boy, THE BIRDS is an unusual movie.
