Video of the Week: “Beach Blanket Bingo”

As summer wanes, we once again revisit Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), thanks to the fine folks at Here’s the end of the film, as South Dakota Slim battles all comers in defense of Sugar Kane (Linda Evans), who looks really confused. The day is saved by Frankie Avalon – we have no trouble giving him all the credit. Huzzah!

Also, Paul Lynde!!!!

Spring is finally here, so naturally we immediately start thinking about summer. In that spirit, here is another look at the late William Asher‘s Beach Blanket Bingo (1965). South Dakota Slim has just been bonked on the head by a mysterious assailant, causing him to forget that he was just about to slice Sugar Kane (Linda Evans) in half with a buzz saw. He decides he must become her knight in shining armor instead.

Don’t think too hard about it; it’s a Frankie and Annette beach party movie, you know!
