Storyline

New York tourist Tony Curtis falls asleep on a Southern California beach on his first night in the West and wakes up to The New Phantasmagoria--catamarans, surfers (including a dog), bodybuilders, acrobats, motorcycle chicken races, a nut fishing in the shallows . . . and Sharon Tate as a skydiver named Malibu who gives Curtis the rapture of artificial respiration when he is conked on the head by a flying surfboard. This is the '60s American Dream: youth and beauty and money and sex in Southern California. Go west, all men. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

The film's theme song was written and recorded by The Byrds. In a strange bit of irony, the producer of the first two Byrds album was Terry Melcher, who was a previous resident of 10050 Cielo Drive, the house where "Don't Make Waves" star Sharon Tate and her friends were murdered by the Manson family in August 9, 1969.

Goofs

Early in the film when Claudia Cardinale invites Tony over to her apt, he is seen sitting in a chair on her porch clearly holding an unlit cigar. The camera cuts away to Claudia inside the apt who then comes out onto the porch -there is no cigar in Tony's hand. Claudia is holding a cigar box which she offers to Tony - he then picks out a cigar. See more »

Quotes

Carlo Cofield: Look, all great salesmen are nothing more than just a uh - a collection of personality defects: the uh morality of a sieve, the... charm of a schizophrenic, the sensitivity of a rhino, and the uh - the scruples of a blackmailer.

Colorful trip back to the '60s in California
4 January 2006 | by (Wash DC Area) – See all my reviews

I like to watch movies as I workout on my exercise bike, and this movie was visually entertaining--all those sights and sounds and styles of Southern California in the late '60s, big fun. Sure, this is a 'light read' but it is a colorful chronicle and a trip back to Muscle Beach, dude. Well, that's all I had planned to say until I was prompted to write more text--I have to write a minimum of ten lines. Whoa, that's like taking an essay test. How am I going to write ten lines about this movie? I'm not a movie reviewer. Well, pass me the popcorn and let me give this a go. It starts with a guy and his Volkswagen and if you watch it, you'll see what happens next. Thanks for reading my movie review. I think it was excellent.
