Movie Info

Dolores (Annette Funicello) and Frankie (Frankie Avalon), attractive young surfers in Southern California, are just out for a good time. Their relaxed lifestyle fascinates Professor Sutwell (Bob Cummings), an anthropologist who decides to study the social lives of teens. A series of beach-themed films would follow the blueprint set by this one, which hinges on romantic rivalries, rugged motorcyclists, an attempted crime and plenty of handsome people.

Audience Reviews for Beach Party

  • Sep 05, 2010
    This is the first of the "Beach" movies with Frankie and Annette, and it's the best one of them. If you only see one "Beach" movie, see this one.

    A bearded scientist type goes to spring break to investigate what's happening with those kooky kollege kids dancing and wiggling around next-to-naked and right in public, too, inaugurating American International Pictures sleazoid attempt to seize the youth market by defining it. Annette bravely plays a teenage Doris Day, the only girl on the beach not giving it up, but threatening to, dammit, threatening to alla time. So she's the only one Frankie wants.
