How to Stuff a Wild Bikini (14-Jul-1965)

Director: William Asher

Writers: William Asher; Leo Townsend

Musical Score by: Les Baxter

Producers: James H. Nicholson; Samuel Z. Arkoff

Keywords: Musical Comedy, Beach Party

Frankie is off with the Naval Reserve and doesn't trust Annette; he hires a witch doctor, played by Buster Keaton, to send a pelican to perform surveillance. Sure enough a boy, Ricky, is fancying Annette! The witch doctor sends a decoy, a wild bikini "stuffed" with Cassandra, to divert Ricky's attention away. The New York Times called it "the worst film of the last two and maybe the next two years." With waning interest in beach party pictures, this is American International's final feature with Annette and Frankie.
