Doreen Lang designated ‘the Hysterical Mother in the diner’ on IMDb. From Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) A cautionary tale based on friend Daphne Du Maurier’s book about nature gone wild. With the screenplay penned by Evan Hunter.
Watch the hysterical woman in the diner accuse Tippi Hedren’s character Melanie Daniels of practically being the Whore of Babylon, having brought upon this flying wrath from the sky, as all the winged mayhem began the moment she stepped onto the dock of the pristine and pious sleeping fishing village of Bodega Bay.
One thought on “Hysterical Woman of the Week! Doreen Lang at the diner in The Birds (1963)”
Joey, Doreen Lang has long been one of Team Bartilucci’s favorite screamers thanks to THE BIRDS! But make no mistake, Lang has range: she was also memorable in her scene in another of Hitchcock’s classics, NORTH BY NORTHWEST, as Cary Grant’s tired but wry secretary, Maggie! :-)
