Yes, today is Alfred Hitchcock's birthday. Gothamist finds the Google tribute funny, especially since we all know the bird will poop on Hitch's head, which is a nod for Hitch's fondness for poop humor.
Google's Alfred Hitchcock search. Our favorite Hitchcock movies are Vertigo, Notorious, Rear Window, Marnie, North by Northwest, The Birds, Shadow of a Doubt, Strangers on a Train...hell, we'll take the whole canon. But top three: Notorious, Rear Window, and North by Northwest.
