Amazing that Disney forgot to trademark "Roy", given at least two Disney family members and executives had that name.

Agreed. Citerion should do a boxed set of the originals. Add an Elvis set too.

What was 'creepy' about Roy? Unless you're privy to some information no one else is I think another adjective might be more charitable.
Sorry, I only saw TMMC in reruns (as I hadn't been been borned yet when it was on first-run TV). The first time it aired on the 70s in syndication, I missed the opening cast introductions and assumed Roy was Uncle Fester

from the Addams Family. All of whom were Creepy, Kooky, or altogether Ooky ... Irregardless all was in Jest ...

Thank you for this. I was a little worried that we would not get it after the moderators were forced to close the controversial "While we wait for 'A few words about ... ™ Back to the Beach on Blu-ray'" thread a few months ago due to the cineastes all fighting about whether certain sequences were shot on Eastmancolor 5295 or 5297. :)

The Mods insist that references to various Eastman stocks be correct. They allow aspect ratios to slide a bit, but stocks…

I thought BACK TO THE BEACH was nominated for five Oscars, not four. In addition to the usual categories, there was also excellence in surf wrangling.

Btw, Frankie Avalon's performance was definitely echt Noir, especially when he smiled and showed his capped teeth.
For the life of me i can't find any Academy Award nominations for Back To The Beach. Am I missing something?

I'm referring to the last line of Mr. Harris' "few words':

Tremendously entertaining - nominated for four Academy Awards, Back to the Beach is one of those treasures that one will want to pass down from generation to generation, warranting that special spot in the Paramount Presents pantheon.
