Ford truck in Hitchcock thriller

Someone sent me an email with a lot of old rarely seen before photographs. Here is a pic from the set of The Birds movie. There is what looks like a '56 pickup in the garage. Can't tell if it is an F100 Longbed or an F250. It has been a while since I saw this movie so I don't remember seeing an old ford truck.

I've always been a big Hitchcock fan. The truck in "The Birds" is a 56 F-250. You see it driven quite a bit in the movie, and one point it hurridly comes to a stop and the driver dumps the clutch before it's completely stopped, and the truck lurches back and forth. Kinda cool.

I'm guessing it was an over worked taxidermist...

Hitchcock liked the '56 Ford pickup:

Yes, what movies? Don't tease us like that!

That first picture really sums up Americana, doesn't it? A farmer working on his John Deere and a Ford pickup in a gravel/dirt barnyard in front of a shed that needs paint.

The first one is from "The Birds" - the original post. The second is from an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Coyote Moon (screen grab from YouTube).

The Birds was partially filmed in Bodega Bay CA / Most of the birds were the real thing, not stuffed.

Go to IMDb.com and read all about it.

IMDb (Internet Movie Data base) also has a list of every vehicle used in every silent & talkie film.
