CROWN INTERNATIONAL PICTURES: THE SYMBOL OF QUALITY. OK, actually the symbol of mediocrity. Whenever I see the Crown International logo on the front of a movie I know I'm in for . . . well, not much, really.
The opening credits roll while an early 60's rock'n'roll surf tune grooves underneath it all.
Bianca lets Rick into her apartment and before you can say sexy diaphanous slinky negligee he's hopelessly smitten by her.
Robert Alda is, of course, perhaps best known today for being Alan Alda's father but he was a successful Broadway star (GUYS AND DOLLS) as well as battling a disembodied hand in THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS. Alda's performance here is adequate. Neil Hamilton as the cult leader Lamont is probably best known for playing Commissioner Gordon on the sixties TV show BATMAN as well as for appearing in TARZAN THE APE MAN and TARZAN AND HIS MATE alongside Johnny Weissmuller. Hamilton, too, is adequate in his performance. Adriana Welter is a veteran of those Mexican horror films that emerged from the studios of Churubusco-Azteca: THE BRAINIAC, THE VAMPIRE and it's sequel THE VAMPIRE'S COFFIN. Welter's performance as Donna is mostly adequate.
