Male chauvinist Mike attempts to get an intelligent burgeoning feminist Delilah into his harem. When she resists, Mike then poses as his brother Herbert, but in the process falls in love with Delilah.
This was an independent production with no connection to AIP's "beach party" franchise. Nonetheless, the makers went out of their way to imitate their formula: Deborah Walley and Tommy Kirk were BP vets, the same stretch of beach was used as a location, the Don Rickles-like entrepreneur was named Daddy (and played by Sid Haig with a Timothy Carey impression), an older businessman sees a way of using the kids to make money by staging big races (in this case, skateboards, motorcycles, speedboats, etc.), and musical performances by mostly minor rock artists.
I'd like to buy a skateboard.
Daddy: Groovy. What color?
Delilah Dawes: Oh? How about fuchsia?
Mike Samson: I doubt if he's got that.
Daddy: Fuchsia number 1? Fuchsia number 2? Or, Fuchsia number 3? Also known as: Groovy Grape.
Delilah Dawes: I'll take that one.
This movie takes place in the summer, as is made clear by some conversation between Woody and Mike early in the film. When Woody, 'Herbert' and Delilah drive downtown, some shots reveal a good amount of Christmas decor (neon Santa Clauses all down the street can be seen in one of the scene's first shots). Also during the downtown drive, a theater marquee lists December dates. On top of this, some scenes that take place on residential streets show trees well into Autumnal states.
