Originally announced in the end credits of Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965) under the title "The Girl in the Glass Bikini," this effort was initially rejected by AIP, which added new footage featuring Boris Karloff and Susan Hart in a separate subplot involving Hiram Stokely, billed as 'The Corpse.' This is also apparent in Hart's bikini-clad ghost being superimposed into scenes featuring the original actors. The final release took place in April 1966, bringing the studio's popular Beach Party series to a close after just under three years.
The only "Beach Party" movie to include any swearing. Princess Yolanda (Bobbie Shaw Chance) barks "Like hell!" to Chicken Feather (Benny Rubin), as they discuss J. Sinister Hulk (Jesse White)'s latest scheme.
