Jesse Pearson, left, as Conrad Birdie in the movie "Bye Bye Birdie" (1963). Van Dyke, background right, portrayed Birdie's manager. Janet Leigh, looking at Van Dyke, played Albert's girlfriend and secretary. The film was based on the 1960 Broadway hit play, in which Van Dyke costarred.
Of that stage role, Van Dyke said, "I knew I had the biggest break a man could possibly get when I got that part."
