A new column by Herb Caen. Pictured: Caen with Alfred Hitchcock in Union Square on April talking about Hitchcock's recently-released movie 'The Birds.' Herb Caen was a corny but cute columnist who coined the term "Bagdad by the Bay"
Photo by Clarence Sinclair Bull, 1958 Hitchcock directing Leo, the final MGM lion. Hitchcock only made one movie with MGM (North By Northwest, starring Cary Grant). It wasn’t all work, though. Sometimes there was tea for two.
