When teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie (Jesse Pearson) gets drafted, his songwriter (Dick Van Dyke) organizes a nationwide contest in which one lucky girl will give Birdie a farewell smooch.

Other features

A nice Columbia-TriStar treatment, with the usual plethora of subtitles that TriStar provides (English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean and Thai) as well as three different sound options. You can pick Dolby 5.1 or 2.0 or -- for audio historians -- a recreation of the film's original three-channel sound mix. Widescreen and fullscreen; there's also the original trailer and some cast/crew information, too.
