    Hello,

    It seems strange that all of the "Beach" pictures were
    released on DVD in short order -- except for Muscle Beach
    Party. Is MGM waiting for proper elements or is there a
    problem with music licensing?

    I'm still waiting for The Ghost In The Invisible Bikini and (though it's not part of the same series) It's A Bikini World.
    If you love these movies, check out this site.

    jeezzz...I just ordered 3 beach party movies and the one Pajama party movie!

    All under $10 at deepdvddiscount.com! (and only one is not anamorphic, all are OAR).

    Hello,

    Thanks for the tip, Larry. I'm aware of
    briansdriveintheater -- it's a great site for the AIP
    series and related movies.

    I would like to see "Ski Party", "Ride the Wild Surf"
    (Columbia), and "Girls on the Beach" show up on DVD
    someday.

    Too bad "Bikini Beach" isn't Anamorphic/widescreen
    enhanced.

    MGM doesn't have the rights to MUSCLE BEACH PARTY any longer. This was discussed in an article on the series in Video Watchdog a year or so ago.

    Also, Back to the Beach isn't on DVD yet. It's the only place where you can see Annette Funicello singing with Fishbone.
