Bye Bye Birdie (4-Apr-1963)

Director: George Sidney

Writer: Irving Brecher

From a play: Bye, Bye, Birdie by Michael Stewart, Charles Strouse, and Lee Adams

Music by: Charles Strouse

Producer: Fred Kohlmar

Keywords: Musical Comedy

Thinly-disguised Elvis-type Conrad Birdie drives girls into hysterics, and must have a fitting sendoff before he is drafted into the U.S. Army. Satire on 1960s culture is more sophisticated than it is given credit for. Adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway play.
