Don’t you just love the oldies but goodies? I do~~~tonight it’s ‘Bye Bye Birdie’

Ann Margaret, Dick Van Dyke & Janet Leigh  (1963)

Conrad Birdie is the biggest rock & roll star of the 60’s ever to be drafted. Aspiring chemist and song writer Albert is convinced he can make his fortune and marry his girlfriend Rosie if he gets Conrad on the Ed Sullivan show to kiss a high school girl goodbye. Albert’s mother will do anything to break him up with Rosie. Kim and Hugo, the high school steadies, live in Sweet Apple, Ohio where most of the action takes place. Songs include What’s the Matter with Kids Today, Bye bye birdie, the Telephone Song (Going Steady), We love you Conrad. Written by Lisa Grable

None-too-successful songwriter Albert Peterson hatches a plot with his secretary – and long-suffering girlfriend – to get rock-and-roll phenomenon Conrad Birdie to sing one of his songs on the Ed Sullivan show. The pop star would then symbolically kiss goodbye to a young lady chosen at random from the country’s womanhood, this being his last appearance before being drafted. Complicated to start with, things get more tricky as everyone including Albert’s clinging mother descend on the small town where the chosen girl lives. Even Albert’s chemical inventions come in useful.

Ann-Margaret is still a cutie pie!
