Bikini Beach (1964)

Another surf-and-sand-and-teenagers episode with a simple story about an old grump being converted by a nice school teacher to loving the crazy kids who disport themselves around him.

Harvey Huntington Honeywagon (Keenan Wynn) wants to prove his chimpanzee is as intelligent as teenagers and build a retirement home on the kids’ beach.

Don Rickles is particularly good as he overplays a role that predates his rise to fame on television.

The cast also includes Annette FunicelloFrankie Avalon, Harvey Lembeck, John Ashley and Delores Wells, and features music from Donna LorenLittle Stevie WonderThe Exciters and The Pyramids.
