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

This was billed as Sharon Tate's film debut by producer Martin Ransohoff, who had Sharon under contract. Tate had already appeared in films, including an unbilled bit in Ransohoff's own The Americanization of Emily (1964) and in the 1966 British horror film Eye of the Devil (1966). See more »

Quotes

Carlo Cofield: You know what I want? A box of twenty-five Monte Cristo panatellas. I want a king-size vibrator bed. I want a 35mm. Hasselblad, a Rolls-Royce convertible. I want driving gloves made from the underside of antelope ears. A bold men's cologne for the man who does something to women. A cashmere double-breasted jacket that's going to get me there first.
Laura Califatti: Get where?
Carlo Cofield: Doesn't matter. I want to be where the action is. I want to live a life of understated elegance.

Horrendous addition to the "beach movie" genre
15 January 2005 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Tony Curtis, Edgar Bergen, Sharon Tate????? While the first thirty minutes of this film are perhaps promising, the plot quickly becomes insanely silly.

Perhaps the pedestrian direction of this film is predetermined by the fact that Filmways was the production company. One would expect no less from the makers of numerous mindless sitcoms of the 60s.

Slow motion scenes of Sharon Tate bouncing about, and numerous shots of various California beefcake bodybuilders strutting their stuff, are interspersed with ridiculous, unrelated scenes of supposed comedy.

The "introducing Sharon Tate" credit is dubious, considering she "debued" in FOUR films the same year, including "Valley of the Dolls." An experience to be missed.
