The first of the five official American-International "Beach Party" movies. Anthropology Professor Robert Orwell Sutwell and his secretary Marianne are studying the sex habits of teenagers. The surfing teens led by Frankie and Dee Dee don't have much sex but they sing, battle the motorcycle rats and mice led by Eric Von Zipper and dance to Dick Dale and the Del Tones. Look for Big Daddy's surprise cameo. Written by
Shameless self-promotion.. at one point Dorothy Malone says to Robert Cummings, "I hope you keep the picture rights, sell it to American International and make a fortune!" referring to the very studio that made "Beach Party". See more »
Early in the film, when Frankie and Delores drive onto the beach towards their beach house for the first time, there's already a set of tire tracks in the sand from a previous take. See more »
Prof. Robert O. Sutwell:
Marianne, this book will be my triumph.
And you'll never get it though the mail. But hang on to the picture rights, I'm sure American International will snap it up in a minute.

This is the first and some would say best(other than Beach Blanket Bingo) of the series.Annette and Frankie are on their way to a cozy weekend beach vacation,but Annette has invited the whole gang!!!Frankie is mad at her rejection of him,and they have a childish fight.Meanwhile,a professor is studying the teens and Annette uses him to get back at Frankie,while Frankie uses an over-endowed girl.Annette sings "Treat Him Nicely" and "Promise Me Anything" as well as the title song with Frankie.Fun pie-throwing things.
