Overview

The great Vincent Price obviously had fun with his characterization of Dr. Goldfoot in this campy spy spoof directed by Norman Taurog. With his henchman Igor (Jack Mullaney), the demented doctor builds a machine that mass-produces an army bikini-clad babes. Goldfoot programs his vixens to seduce the wealthiest men alive and convince them to sign their fortunes over to him - thus enabling the fiendish doctor to amass tremendous wealth and take over the world. Frankie Avalon co-stars as Secret Agent Craig Gamble, who sets out to destroy the women and bring Goldfoot's plan to a screeching halt. Annette Funicello and Harvey Lembeck provide cameo appearances. Strictly for fans who loved those 1960s drive-in quickies.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Something of an ancestor of the Austin Powers movies, Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine is best appreciated by those who enjoy laughing at rather than with a movie. While it is far from the worst movie ever made, its spoof of 1960's "hipsterdom" (as filtered through the lens of a way-over-40 director), James Bond and Roger Corman movies makes it a strange bird indeed. Director Norman Taurog's decision to film this as if it were just another Jerry Lewis comedy makes a certain amount of sense when one considers that the humor in the script never rises to a higher level -- but it also makes the spoof elements of the film seem grafted on. Nevertheless, there's a certain lunatic charm to the proceedings; one can't help but smile, even when smiting one's head at how corny so much of it is. Vincent Price is in high camp form, seeming to relish the absurdity of just being involved in such a film, and enjoying the chance to poke fun at his villainous image. Dwayne Hickman and Frankie Avalon are less inspired, but Susan Hart is a delight as the lead fembot. The Supremes sound great on the ridiculous title track, and the bargain-basement fashions are extremely enjoyable. Most viewers will lose patience with Goldfoot long before it is over -- and rightfully so - but cult movie fans will want to experience it at least once.
