Movie Info

The great Vincent Price obviously had fun with his characterization of Dr. Goldfoot in this campy spy spoof directed by Norman Taurog. With his henchman Igor (Jack Mullaney), the demented doctor builds a machine that mass-produces an army bikini-clad babes. Goldfoot programs his vixens to seduce the wealthiest men alive and convince them to sign their fortunes over to him - thus enabling the fiendish doctor to amass tremendous wealth and take over the world. Frankie Avalon co-stars as Secret Agent Craig Gamble, who sets out to destroy the women and bring Goldfoot's plan to a screeching halt. Annette Funicello and Harvey Lembeck provide cameo appearances. Strictly for fans who loved those 1960s drive-in quickies.

    I love this movie, it's so fun, and Vincent Price is in it too. It's hilariously silly, and makes fun of both the "Beach" movies and Price's horror movies at the time as well, while making fun of itself a bit too. I highly recommend it.

    a movie made for the sixties drive-in make-out crowd(who wouldn't be watching it anyway, eh?), a campy "romp" with hollywood's teen draw (?) stars, frankie avalon and dwayne hickman (dobie gillis), but the surprise here is vincent price for giving this house payment his very all. the ending is about 20 minutes of oh-how-i-wish-this-was-slapstick, more sad than kitchy-koo. only for those stoner nights, i think. but it's a sad reminder of many hours of my youth gone watching sorry dreck of this low caliber. hey! i just got through watchin it!!! they got me again...dammit!

    How can something so mind numbingly BAD...be so gloriously GOOD? I saw this KNOWING it was a good contender for my "So Bad They're Good" list. Come on people...Vincent Price as the 'evil' Dr. Goldfoot is hilarious and at his over the top campy best. They poke some fun at some of Price's previous films and you'll also be able to see were Mike Meyers got a lot of his inspiration for the Austin Powers films. There's even a very brief cameo (in the torture chamber) by Annette Funicello.

    Horror icon Vincent Price goes all hammy and over the top. He's not very good at comedy. Frankie Avalon takes all kind of prat falls or causes other characters to do so, but is not really funny either. The movie is filled with all sorts of corny sight gags and slapstick and was a waste of my time.
