Coincidence in time?

On 3 April 2022, CBS Sunday Morning did a piece on Ann-Marget , including her break-out role as "Kim MacAfee" in the movie Bye Bye Birdie. On 5 April 2022, Ann-Margret's co-star in Bye Bye Birdie, Bobby Rydell ("Hugo Peabody"), died. In the movie, toward the end, as Conrad Birdie is about to kiss Kim (Ann-Marget), Hugo runs onstage and punches him out on the live telecast of the Ed Sullivan Show. Sound familiar? And don't forget Dick van Dyke ("Albert Peterson") is a chemist with a hot invention (that gets introduced on the Ed Sullivan Show). And the Russians are villains in the movie. Sound familiar?

UPDATE entered 19 April

Bye Bye Birdie still remmembered
