Rich playgirl Kit Jordan (nee Katherine Lawson Chandler) is in Acapulco vacationing with her current husband, Pete Jordan, formerly an American beach boy working the Acapulco shores for rich women. Meanwhile, the body of one of Pete's fellow beach boys, Billy Andrews, washes to shore. On his wrist is a bracelet engraved with "Love is thin ice." The police investigate whether it was murder or suicide. Conflict arises when Billy's old girlfriend, Carol, makes a play for Pete, and beach boy Hank tries to score with Kit, and the stability of the marriage is put to the test. Written by

We've got a helluva fraternity. Our members have washed up on beaches all over the world, and all of us are the same.

No, some of us are different. Some of us are worse.

My favorite quote: Hugh O'Brian, who plays an aging beach-boy gigolo, stands in front of a mirror in shorts patting his flat abs and saying "How long, oh Lord, how long..." Recommended for fans of lurid, tasteless, over-the-top Hollywood camp drama. The basic story involves wealthy middle-aged American women hanging out in their lavish Mexican beach houses, wearing flashy expensive clothes, and passing the time toying with the local gigolos - so why should they be miserable? All the stars are attractive, though no longer young. The story is played devastatingly straight, with many heavy emotional moments and Dramatic Revelations which will have you chuckling.
