Did You Know?

Although production wrapped in late 1965, a campy pop art prologue/epilogue (comic book-style words like "POW!," "WHAM!", etc. superimposed over Ann-Margret as she swung across screen on a swing, echoing Bye Bye Birdie (1963)'s filmic bookends) was subsequently filmed to cash in on the success of TV's "Batman" (1966), which debuted in early 1966.See more »

For bad movie lovers this will be heaven, all others beware!, 10 October 2013
Author: jjnxn-1 from United States

Attention all bad movie lovers this one's for you! Part bad photo shoot-part wildly politically incorrect girlie show. The kind of lame brained junk the studios thought would connect with the youth of the sixties, the only people you can imagine this would speak to are lovers of camp. Be prepared to be practically blinded by the overload of color, some scenes have so much neon yellow and red you'll need sunglasses. That this horror show was directed by George Sidney who in better times was responsible for Show Boat, Kiss Me Kate and other classics boggles the mind. Leering and sexist as well as stupid and absurd this is an outlandish artifact of it's time. It is truly bad from beginning to the very end complete with Batman fight graphics such as POOWWW!!!!!! and ZAP!!
