About this movie:
Muscle Beach Party is the second of seven beach party films produced by American International Pictures. It stars Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello and was directed by William Asher, who also directed four other films in this series.
Dick Dale and the Del-Tones and Stevie Wonder appear in musical numbers, the latter aged thirteen and making his film debut, billed as Little Stevie Wonder.
In the film, Frankie, Dee Dee, and the beach party gang hit Malibu Beach for another summer of surfing and no jobs only to find their secret surfing spot threatened by a gang of bodybuilders, led by the dim-witted coach Jack Fanny, played by Don Rickles. Meanwhile, a bored Italian Countess (Luciana Paluzzi) is trying to steal Frankie from Dee Dee.
Paluzzi, an Italian American actress, best known for playing SPECTRE assassin Fiona Volpe in the fourth James Bond film, Thunderball. In 1964 she also played the villainess in an episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., as the seductive THRUSH agent Angela in the first-season episode The Four Steps Affair and in the movie version of the show's pilot episode, To Trap a Spy.
