Bird is a 1988 American film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood.
The film is a biopic, a tribute to the life and music of jazz saxophonist Charlie "Bird" Parker, written by Joel Oliansky. It is constructed as a collage of scenes from Parker's life, from his childhood in Kansas City, through his marriage to Chan Richardson, to his early death at the age of thirty-four.
