Better still, Annette works in a carny where she tries to attract male customers for the hoochie coochie show. (No, I am not making that up.)
Thank goodness Eric Von Zipper (Harvey Lembeck) is still around. Only he seems to have changed his name to Charlie Bigg and no longer runs around with the least threatening bikers in movie history.
The film also features Fabian, Chill Wills and Julie Parrish. But it’s all to no avail. No gilrs in bikinis shaking their behinds at the camera meant very tepid box office. The film spawned only one sequel (Thunder Alley) and marked the last time Frankie and Annette would avoid having sex with each other.
By the time the duo were finally reunited for 1987’s Back to the Beach, they would be a married couple with a growing kid, giving them a whole new excuse for avoiding sex.
