ANN-MARGRET / BYE BYE BIRDIE (1965). Vintage original 14 x 11 35 x 28 cm. Black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Dick Van Dyke, Ann-Margret, Janet Leigh, Bobby Rydell, Jesse Pearson, Paul Lynde, Maureen Stapleton, dir: George Sidney; Columbia. Popular musical about a rock singer who travels to a small town to make his farewell performance before going off to the draft, and the lucky girl who gets to kiss him goodbye on the air. In her second film, Ann-Margret played the dancing, singing teen girl who won the contest. Because he was so enamored with her, director George Sidney made Ann-Margret’s character more the star of the piece much to the dissatisfaction of original Broadway cast members Dick Van Dyke and Paul Lynd. An entire opening and closing musical sequence was added by Sidney featuring Ann-Margret. The film made her a new star and she posed endlessly for cheese-cake photos such as this one. It is coded “cpc-8625-820″. Minor curling, minor crease at top left corner. It must come back in the same condition as it was sent. AUTHENTICATION: My name is Walter Reuben.
