Beach Blanket Bingo


Time Out says

More seafront fluff from the AIP stable, with Annette mad at Frankie for fancying starlet Evans (decades before her Dynasty fame) and mounting a rescue mission when she's kidnapped by a biker gang. Madhouse plot elements thrown into the mix include a passing mermaid, abrasive comic Don Rickles as the owner of a sky-diving club, and Buster Keaton as a leching old beachcomber, gamely taking falls as he chases after bikini-ed youth. Pretty dumb really, but at least it knows it, and for the record, they never actually play bingo, with beach blankets or anything else.
