A I am spending a relaxing weekend in a beachside town – Anglesea, Victoria, and after a lovely walk on the beach, I thought I would recall a few movies with either memorable beach scenes or a setting at the beach.
Urquharts Bluff Beach – Anglesea, Victoria
And here they are…..
FROM HERE TO ENTERNITY (1953)
Burt Lancaster & Deborah Kerr frolick in the surf.
AIRPLANE (aka) FLYING HIGH – 1980
Julie Hagerty & Robert Hays parody the above scene from Here To Eternity in this comedy classic.
Panic on the beach in the original summer blockbuster movie
Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta share some summer loving
BEACH BLANKET BINGO (1965)
MUSCLE BEACH PARTY (1964)
Annette Funicello, Frankie Avalon and the boys show some muscle
Barbara Hershey & Bette Midler in the chic flick tearjerker soak up some rays
PSYCHO BEACH PARTY (2000)
Charles Busch starred in and adapted his hit off- Broadway play
THE BEACH (2000)
Leonardo DiCaprio starred in Danny Boyle’s disappointing film
BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS (1970)
The stunning Edy Williams featured in a memorable beach scene in Russ Meyer’s camp classic.
PLANET OF THE APES (1968)
Who can forget the memorable ending to this all time classic film.
PAULINE AT THE BEACH (1983)
A little gem from French auteur Eric Rohmer.
Of course there are many many other classic, and not so classic, films with beach settings – too many to mention.
So in the coming Winter months check out a few beach movies on DVD to warm your cockles.
