Did You Know?

Trivia:
A number of the cast were stars from American-International's "Beach Party" series films. This one was the studio's attempt to take those films into a new area.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: During the chase scene at the end, the "cable car" with Dr. Goldfoot and Igor goes off the tracks to continue chasing Craig and Todd over streets and over the Golden Gate Bridge, which have no tracks. San Francisco cable cars run by grabbing a moving cable beneath the street, controlled by the lever you see the drivers of the cars handling. The red "cable car" is obviously a motorized trolley car.See more »

Statuesque beauties, 1 March 2015
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Vincent Price looks like he's having a great old time in this preposterous film Dr. Goldfoot And The Bikini Machine. For a classically trained actor like Price the chance to do a whole film around a Snidely Whiplash type villain must have been impossible to resist. Of course he got the money up front.

Dr. Goldfoot has invented an army of robots who look like cover girls in bikinis and his mad plan is to get them married to the richest people in the world and take over their money. Such a one played by Susan Hart he's targeted Dwayne Hickman with. But her programming got messed up and she goes after Frankie Avalon a would be secret agent who is the cause no doubt of his uncle spymaster Fred Clark's baldness.

Nothing wrong with seeing all these statuesque beauties, put your mind on them and you'll forget the inanities of the story. However Price and his assistant Jack Mullaney will give you a few chuckles. They remind me of Jack Lemmon and Peter Falk in The Great Race.

It's excruciatingly dumb, but also very funny.
