The sixties were an important time for movie musicals and this week the TML Duo discusses the 1963 film adaptation of the Broadway Musical, Bye Bye Birdie. In this episode, Izzi and David discuss what makes a well-made musical adaptation, while debating if there should be changes to the musical's source materials, as well as touching upon the careers of Dick Van Dyke, Elvis Presley, and Ann-Margret.
"Bye-bye Birdie / I'm gonna miss ya so / Bye-bye Birdie / Why'd ya have to go? / No more sunshine / It's followed you away / I'll cry 'Birdie' / Till you're home to stay"- Kim McAfee
