There's Nothing Like Beach Movies During Summertime

This summer I've really been in a mood for some beach movies. I've always enjoyed watching these flicks during this season of the year. They have so much to offer, including hot babes, beautiful beaches & cool music. Here are posters of some of the ones I like. What are your favorite beach movies?

What is it about vintage movie posters? They're just seriously cool... ok, maybe not always seriously. The last one had me cracking up!

Its ages since Ive seen an Elvis movie. During the 1970's when I was a child it seemed there was always an Elvis 'beach movie' on tv. They were really bad, but he was so charismatic it didnt matter, they were fun. Thanks so much for your lovely comments, unfortunately Im having a problem with a persistent 'pain in the ass' so having to turn my comments off again ...... I didnt know I was so popular LOL! Hopefully they will tire of me soon X

I love "Endless Summer" and Big Wednesday

Keith said...

Hey Liz. Thanks. Glad you love these movies too. They are so much fun. Yeah, they make me wanna head to the beach. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Midtown. Thanks. Glad to see you're a fan of these movies too. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Haute. These posters were awesome. It didn't matter what genre. The posters were usually fantastic. I can't say the same for most posters of today.

Keith said...

Hey Vintage. I love beach movies. Not all of them are that good to be honest. They are still fun to watch. Elvis and the beach go hand in hand. Sorry to hear about the creep that's causing you to have to keep cutting off your comments. That's such a shame. Take care. Good luck.

Keith said...

Hey Nigel. Thanks for sharing your faves. I've seen Endless Summer. Cheers!

Planet Mondo said...

I'd also recommend Dogtown and the Z Boys (the documentary, not the dramatisation) for a snapshot of summer in the seventies

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. I heard of the doc, but never seen it. I'll have to give it a shot.

Keith said...

Hey Joelyne. It rained so much yesterday. We are getting more of the same. I want some beach weather. Hope you're doing well. Cheers!

Gabbi said...

Such a fan of beach movies also! Grew up on them and still love so many of the songs that came out of them... wonderful post dear Keith!♥

FabBlab said...

Best movies ever ;) Adore beach movies. I love Elvis movies.

Pop Champagne said...

man I wish there is a beach where I live, but instead we got a man made canal that was made during ww2. And I guess there's the river, but they dump sewer in it :S awww they all look so happy by the beach LOL

Lily G. said...

Totally agree. I love summer beach movies.

Scott (gotankgo) said...

Awesome and colorful selection - summertime cool, Keith. On Comcast, the Retro movie channel has been showing a bunch of the Beach - Bingo - Surf type movies from the 60s lately. Been catching a few here and there - usually goofy and diggable in very watchable manner with great music acts and celebrity cameos. Last one I watched, 1964s Bikini Beach, had Stevie Wonder AND Don Rickles.

Love this Keith!
The graphic is priceless!!
Thank you~

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. Glad to see you're a fan of these movies. I loved them from the time I was a kid. They are still so cool.

Keith said...

Hey Fab. Thanks. Glad to see you enjoy these movies. Elvis made so many cool movies, including some beach ones.

Keith said...

Hey Pop. That sucks. I'm so sorry. We've got some beaches now far from us. I live in eastern North Carolina. I'm not far from the Atlantic Ocean.

Keith said...

Thanks Lily. Glad to see you dig these movies too.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. Wow. That's awesome. I wish I had that channel. I love those movies. They are fun movies to watch. They are pure escapist fun. I enjoy them a lot. Bikini Beach is a good one. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Lenore. Glad you liked these posters. Take care. Cheers!

Farbror Sid said...

Keith said...

Hey Sid. Glad you enjoyed the posters even if you haven't seen all these movies.

Keith said...

Hey Noura. That's exactly how I feel. I wish I had had more time to go to the beach. I've not been nearly enough.

Diana said...

I'm going to Netflix some of these!

Keith said...

Hey Diana. That's a great idea.

Uranium Willy said...

These are great posters. I just got in Beach Party, Beach Blanket Bingo, and It's a Bikini World. Will watch them soon and they are Uranium Cafe material for sure.

Tommy Kirk played Frankie's pal in a lot of the Beach flicks and I just got in a cool looking movie with him called Mars Needs Girls.

Take care

Bill

Keith said...

Hey Bill. That sounds awesome. I hope you enjoy all these movies. I love beach movies. I've never seen that movie Mars Needs Girls, but it sounds interesting. Cheers!
