Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, Beach Party
Beach Party (1963, directed by William Asher) was the first of the Beach Party series of films that brought so much FUN to film lovers from 1963 to 1965.
Muscle Beach Party, Bikini Beach, and Pajama Party came in 1964 and Beach Blanket Bingo, Ski Party (the only one I haven’t seen), and How to Stuff a Wild Bikini came in 1965.
While it isn’t quite the first day of summer yet, it certainly FEELS like it outside, so I thought this would be an ideal picture of the day!
It’d also be an ideal time to sit back and escape to a colorful, in many ways more innocent and carefree time (in the films, not in the years in which they were made).
