ASSUMING THE MASTER’S ROLE,
RON BURRAGE PRESENTS
TIPPI HEDREN AT THE NEW PRINT LAUNCH OF...
ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S
“THE BIRDS”

RON, HITCHCOCK DOUBLE:
We presented the new print of ‘The Birds’. They had me sitting outside a café with a newspaper. And then they were going around with the spotlight, picking out people in the crowd and showing them on the screen.

And then all over a sudden, the spotlight came on to me, behind the newspaper. And everybody looks: ‘it’s Alfred! Is that Alfred?’

Of course there was uproar! Because Alfred was there.

So, I went onto the stage, and then I said we’re here to present the new print of ‘The Birds’. Well, here is the lady: Tippi Hedren, the star of it. And she came on.
