1. Vincent Price having a field day hamming it up like John Barrymore on scotch and speed!
2. Harvey Lembeck as Erich Von Zipper in a hilarious 10-second cameo!
3. The titanic teaming of Dobie Gillis and Frankie Avalon!
4. One of the finest "second bananas," the late Jack Mullaney as Price's Mad Scientist henchman, Igor!
5. Tons of young American International babes!
6. The Supremes singing the title song!
7. It's directed by Elvis' #1 Man, Norman Taurog!
8. It's written by the Three Stooges #1 Man, Ellwood Ullman!
What have you got: Only the greatest film since "Gone With The Wind," "Citizen Kane" and "The Bicycle Thief"! Okay, perhaps not - but it is a ton of zany low budget screwball fun,'60s American International-style.
I really liked it.
