When Elvis-like rock & roll star Conrad Birdie is drafted into the military, the teen nation is united by a contest in which the winner bestows a farewell kiss upon their idol while on the Ed Sullivan Show. Ann-Margret (in her film debut) is the lucky little lady from Sweet Apple, Ohio, who wins the contest, much to the chagrin of her steady beau (Bobby Rydell) and miserable parents (Paul Lynde and Mary LaRoche). Dick Van Dyke and Janet Leigh are an older couple kept from marrying by his meddlesome mother, played to the hilt by Maureen Stapleton. Lightweight but fun, this features an exuberant soundtrack with such memorable ditties as "Put on a Happy Face" and "Kids" and the title track. This is a much better choice than the lackluster, 1995 made-for-TV version. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Portraying the Elvis-like pop singer Conrad Birdie, Jesse Pearson totally NAILED the role. His cocky smile, his stuff-eating grin, his you-gotta-be-sincere passion, his hearty... Read morePublished on Dec 11 2003 by J. Reynolds
I am a "Bye Bye Birdie" convert. I never thought I'd watch this movie. I figured it was campy schlock, something I couldn't possibly enjoy. Read morePublished on April 7 2003 by Sara L. Wilburn
