Birds, The - Frozen Reaction
In the part when everybody was in the diner and then the gas station was on fire, we have a shot-reaction-shot of the blonde lady (can't remember her name). Pay attention to her reaction. In the first shot, she has a frozen look on her face while looking on the left. In the second shot, she has the same look but to the middle. And in the third shot, she has the same exact look but to the right. It's as if it's one shot and they re-positioned her angle of vision.

This was totally intentional. Hitchcock had a very particular style in filming. Also, his appearance in all his movies is noticed. Some may think this is a lack of extras or whatnot but in fact it was just an addition to his ingenious.

This is a Hitchcock scene. It's like saying the shot at the chimney when all the sparrows come out is a slipup, or the angle that gives us a view up the actors' nostrils when they start hearing the birds around the house. So yes: this is fake.
