All you ever wanted to know (and more) about the Beach Party and Surfing movies of the 1960's.

With biographies of the most prominent participants, and interviews with a few of them, this book gives the facts on several of the most popular (and a couple of the most obscure) films of the genre.

Each film is given a rating for such data as Girl (and Boy) Watching and Music.

The photos are a bit lacking - mostly b/w reproductions of color Lobby Cards - but a few of the stills are new.

If you wonder who
