    of the story took too much out of him: “ ‘it scraped me right down to the marrow of my bones. It nearly killed me’ ” (Clarke 398). Capote never fully recovered after writing the novel and he claimed he put too much of himself into this story. So it would only make sense that if Truman felt he had given everything he could possibly give to the story, he would be deserving of multiple awards. However, that is not what happened.

    Colella writes that in the film the Birds serve as a symbol for fear and death and this symbolism is most obviously found in the parlor scene where Norman and Marion are getting to know each other. At first the conversation is light and friendly and the way the shot is composed reflects this atmosphere as both Marion and Norman are level to the camera and to each other, they are equals, but as the scene moves forward and more personal information is shared, Norman leans in closer making him…
