Beach Party / Bikini Beach (Double Feature)
It's the bash at the beach that launched them all! This original Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello outing defined the California generation and introduced surfing, bikinis and a whole lotta hip-shakin' rock 'n' roll to a shocked America. Co-starring Bob Cummings, Dorothy Malone, Harvey Lembeck and Morey Amsterdam and featuring the legendary surf band Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, Beach Party is "downright yummy" (The New York Times)!
Frankie and Annette welcome Harvey Lembeck, Don Rickles, Stevie Wonder and Boris Karloff to the beach for this fun-filled, full-swing party of a film! When charismatic Brit-pop idol Potato Bug sends the girls swooning, a jealous Frankie challenges the English crooner to a drag race...resulting in a picture packed with "surfing, speed, slapstick and sex" (Motion Picture Herald)!
