George Ellis, the star of this movie, is fondly remembered as the host of Big Movie Shocker, a Friday night late show in Atlanta during the 1960s, performing under the name Bestoink Dooley (the same as the character in this film). George styled himself to look somewhat like a hobo, and his character spoke in a wonderfully droll manner, pretending he was bored and he didn't know why his audience bothered watching the "old movies" he had to present.

The version released on video by Cult Video in 1988 seems to be missing an entire reel of film and only runs 65 minutes. See more »
My wife and I were in the beach party scene with Marriane Gordon
My first wife and I were dancers in the beach party scene with Marriane Gordon. I worked with George Ellis who played Bestoink Dooley at Dimension Incorporated in Atlanta, GA and he offered me and my wife the bit parts in the movie. The beach party scene which lasted just a few minutes took all night to film. BTW This movie was one of the top 10 grossing movies of 1965, by grossing over a Million dollars. I assume it played at a lot of drive-ins. I have a DVD copy of the movie that I have shown to my family until they were sick of it. George Ellis also starred in "Moonrunners" that movie was a prequel to "The Dukes of Hazzard" TV show.
