TCM “Spring Break” Film Festival 4/16-4/20, 2012

It's a Little Early, But Get Ready For Summer…

From April 16-20, TCM will pay tribute to the teen beach movies of the 1960s with nightly offerings of bikini-clad babes, tanned hunks, and rock 'n' roll music. Hosted by Tom Lisanti and Ben Mankiewicz.

TCM Press release: "TCM Spotlight: Spring Break – April 16-20 As millions of college students embark on the annual party pilgrimage known as Spring Break, TCM throws down a blanket and cranks up the radio with a five nights of non-stop fun. Favorites in the lineup include Where the Boys Are (1960), Gidget (1959), Beach Party (1963), Beach Blanket Bingo (1965) and Blue Hawaii (1961). Also featured are the TCM premieres of The Girls on the Beach (1965), Beach Ball (1965), Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965) and its inevitable sequel, Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs (1966). Of course, not everyone heads to the beach for Spring Break, so TCM is setting aside April 20 for the snow bunnies, with Ski Party (1965) kicking off a triple feature on the slopes."
