| Not Bad For Bikini Filler... Filling Bikinis with Raquel Welch
This forgotten, parenthetical beach bikini movie actually takes place on a lake... Arrowhead, to be exact... where two guys and a girl take over an abandoned low-rent dance-festival, which is pretty easy given that pretty redhead Quinn O'Hara has her rich dad secretly funding it... A secret since her good-looking boyfriend William Wellman Jr. Has too much pride to want anyone's help...

Well that's the plot, and there's hardly any urgency except for a quick breakup when a rich jerk eyes the girl while a scheming rich lady nabs the guy - plus a water-skiing bully and a few 11th hour thugs...

But with cute and skinny girl-next-door Mary Mitchell as O'Hara's flirtatious, perpetually hungry friend and future iconic bombshell Raquel Welch initially wearing glasses, strategically hiding her perfect body while (for reasons unexplained) jotting notes about the main character's sidekick James Stacy (who's still first billed), A SWINGIN' SUMMER is more about the good times than those attempting to ruin them...

A fairly decent time-filler residing between the glossy Frankie/Annette flicks, and, despite the misleading title, it came out right before hippies were too darn hip for this kind of lightweight, old fashioned (even then) entertainment.
