About the Movie

Lots of laughs and great songs have made this all-time favorite based on the hit Broadway show one of the most memorable musicals of all time. When rock star and teenage heart-throb Conrad Birdie gets drafted, the nation's teenagers go haywire and Conrad's manager, Albert (Dick Van Dyke), faces unemployment. So Albert and his girlfriend (Janet Leigh) organize a nationwide contest in which one lucky girl wins a farewell kiss from Conrad on the Ed Sullivan Show. Kim McAfee (Ann-Margret) turns outto be the lucky teenager and Conrad's whole entourage moves into her quiet, Midwestern home much tothe chagrin of her ever irritable father (Paul Lynde) and her jealous boyfriend (Bobby Rydell). Theresult is chaos and a series of hilarious romantic complications.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Credit George Sidney with directing one of the better fun and frolic tune packages. – Variety Staff, Variety, Aug 1, 2015

Fresh: George Sidney's tacky 1963 musical fantasy-satire about the Elvis craze, based on the Broadway show of the same title, isn't exactly good, but if you like what he does with Ann-Margret, Janet Leigh, and pink decor, it's sort of magnificent. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Aug 1, 2015

Fresh: Underrated satirical musical that has contributed more to popular culture than many people are aware of. – Kim Newman, Empire Magazine, Aug 1, 2015

Fresh: For all its annoyances -- and there are many -- the film somehow sears its way into the mind's eye. – Keith Uhlich, Time Out, Aug 1, 2015
