The Morning Movie: Dr. Goldfoot and The Bikini Machine (1965)
Today's morning movie on TCM was a favorite of mine growing up. It's the 60's cool cult classic Dr. Goldfoot and The Bikini Machine, starring the awesome Vincent Price. It's a mindless but entertaining comedy with elements of sci-fi that has Dr. Goldfoot (Price) creating an army of bikini clad robots to seduce the world's wealthiest men and have them sign over all their assets. And only Frankie Avalon and Dwayne Hickman can stop them. Yeah I'm thinking the same thing..win for Dr. Goldfoot. This is a perfect time capsule of the 60's era with swinging music, cool fashions, and just an all around good vibe. At times, the film may go over the top but it's all in good fun. And loaded with great cameos by Avalon's co-stars from all those beach pics of this era as well: Annette Funicello and Deborah Walley to name a few.
