The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini (1966) Poster

Trivia

J. Sinister Hulk appears in a monster costume during the film; it is the same costume seen in the AIP-TV production "The Eye Creatures," shot in Texas by writer-producer-director Larry Buchanan in 1965. There were other props from previous AIP releases in this film,as well as the spoof "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" (1965), which also featured the bikini-clad Susan Hart in a rare leading role.

Originally announced in the end credits of 1965's "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" under the title "The Girl in the Glass Bikini," this effort was initially rejected by AIP, who 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 3 years.
