Malcolm Andrews (Tommy Kirk) is a genius, he knows virtually everything
- only not by nature, actually he's a bit of a dork, but gouvernment has
used his brain to store the entire knowledge known to gouvernment,
knowledge Malcolm only has access to when he's sitting on an especially
Doctor Goldfoot (Vincent Price), the perennial baddie,
wants Malcolm, or rather the knowledge in his brain, so when he learns
that Malcolm is going for a walk to a park, only guarded by one secret
service agent, he uses his bikini machine to create Diane (Susan Hart), a
lovely female robot set to seduce Malcolm. However, Diane falls not for
Malcolm but the secret service agent 00 1/2 (Aron Kincaid) and seduces
him, so the whole mission almost ends in failure - until Goldfoot's
assistant Hugo (Harvey Lembeck) has the great idea to lure Malcolm to
Goldfoot's place pretending he's taking him to a nightclub ...
Goldfoot's lab though, it turns out that Malcolm is a very demanding
customer, he demands food, champagne, a floorshow, ... On top of that,
Goldfoot's machine to extract the knowledge from Malcolm's head doesn't
work, and Diane suddenly has the great idea to take her agent lover to
Goldfoot's place. Chaos ensues at the end of which Diane saves the day by
blowing up Goldfoot's machine with Goldfoot, Hugo and herself ...
promote their most expensive feature film yet, Dr.
Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine, production company AIP
has produced this much cheaper TV special (that actually aired about two
weeks after the feature's release). The result is nothing great, as much
was to be expected, rather a cute little tale with a few song-and-dance
numbers, Vincent Price as diabolical and hilarious as one expects him to
be, and a pretty funny Harvey Lembeck. Worth a few chuckles at least ...
