Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965).
What a classically wonderful piece of ’60s fluff. Teen idol Frankie Avalon plays Graig Gamble, a swinging secret agent hot on the trail of titular supervillain Vincent Price, who has a penchant of gold pixie shoes and is trying to gain the assets of the world’s wealthiest men with sexy female robots (led by American International Pictures mainstay Susan Hart) made in his Bikini Machine.
Yes, these are the original Fembots! If you’re an Austin Powers fan and want to check out the first wave of swinging spy movies, this is the place to go — as well as other such movies, like “Modesty Blaise” (1966) and “Casino Royale” (1967).
There’s swinging music (including the title tune, sung by the Supremes), a cheesy plot, some light humor, plenty of babes in bikinis — such terrific summertime fun, who could ask for anything more?
“Remember — the eyes of Goldfoot are upon you!”
Includes cameos by Avalon’s beach movie costars Annette Funicello, Harvey Lembeck and Tommy Kirk.
“Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” (1997) and “Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs” (1966).
