Ron Harper

  1. Rod Taylor, The Birds, 1963.     Alfred Hitchcock’s chosen scenarist, novelist Evan Hunter, was a better writer than casting director. He wrote to Hitch suggesting Harper  for  the hero, Mitch Brenner. Harper had been Detective Bert Kling for 30 episodes of 87th Precinct, 1961-62, created  – of course – by Hunter as Ed McBain.
