Description

Set in 1958, the Rock-and-roll industry’s biggest star, Conrad Birdie, has been drafted into the US army. Birdie’s agent organize for a farewell performance on The Ed Sullivan Show to promote sales for Birdie’s new music. The event becomes complicated and comedy ensues as a fan is selected for a farewell kiss from Birdie and jealousy and star-struck wonder jeopardize the show.
