'Bye, Bye Birdie"

Enjoy these sweet and funny musical videos from the popular 1963 movie, "Bye, Bye Birdie". This film was originally a broadway stage play; a musical parody of fanatical Elvis devotees, and their despair at the time he was drafted into the Army. Starring a young Ann-Margaret, Bobby Rydell, Dick Van Dyke, Janet Leigh, Paul Lynde, and Ed Sullivan, this movie is about family life in a more conservative and innocent time. The film received stellar reviews and was nominated for two Academy Awards. The lively music and dance scenes were popular with teens and adults alike. I remember, as a pre-teen, listening to the vinyl LP movie soundtrack, playing it over and over. Today "Bye, Bye Birdie" is often performed by high school drama students and is still well-loved by modern audiences. Enjoy!
