Friday Flashback: Dr. Goldfoot And The Bikini Machine

After years of beach movies and monster movies and Edgar Allen Poe movies, executives at American International Pictures decided to combine all three. The result is a spoof on the James Bond movies called Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Vincent Price played the titular doctor and is really the main reason to watch this movie. He’s playing a send-up of his horror movie persona while sparring with Frankie Avalon as a Bond wannabe for Strategic Intelligence Command. (“I’m a SIC man!”) Goldfoot manufactures the first cinematic fembots, programmed to seduce rich men and steal their money. Hey, it’s the sixties.
