Edith Head’s green suit is worn by Tippi Hedren throughout The Birds (1963) with one very quick change into a nightgown. Its colour falls into relief against the blue-green Bodega Bay hills, sea and skyline, at times distinct and at times almost camouflage, as if Melanie Daniels is a surface on which to project the film’s themes of nature, tradition and modernity. 207 more words
