Ski Party (released 30 June 1965): the sixth Beach Party movie, the first without Jody McCrea, the second without Harvey Lembeck, the first with Deborah Walley, the first with Aron Kincaid, and the first in which Patti Chandler and Salli Sachse speak dialogue. Guest performances from Lesley “It’s My Party” Gore and James “Godfather of Soul” Brown.
“Ski Party transfers the Beach Party vibe to snow, with a Some Like it Hot ripoff thrown in. Frankie Avalon and Dwayne Hickman go in drag to discover what girls really want, but Deborah Walley and Yvonne Craig put them in the deep freeze. It’s surprisingly fun, with deranged musical appearances by James Brown and Lesley Gore. The outdoor stuff was filmed at Sun Valley. Annette Funicello cameos as a sex-ed instructor.” Amazon.
