This March it'll be exactly 50 years since Alfred Hitchcock's horror masterpiece "The Birds" hit theaters -- and last night, two of the film's stars reunited in Hollywood.

Tippi Hedren, who starred as Melanie Daniels in the movie, and Veronica Cartwright, who played young Cathy, were both on hand for the 50th Anniversary screening of the movie on Thursday at the famous Chinese Theater.

Tippi, 82, and Veronica, 63, both looked great at the event -- where Hedren even wore a mint green outfit similar to the one she wore in the 1963 film.

While Veronica went on to star in other classics like "Alien," "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and "Witches of Eastwick," Hedren's acting career came to a standstill after a bitter contract dispute with Hitch kept her from finding more work.

"He ruined my career, but he didn't ruin my life," she told the crowd last night ... before heavily promoting her Shambala animal sanctuary.
