Surfing college students hang out at a club watching comedian Uncle Woody and drinking Pepsis. Rich playboy "Ding" Pruitt falls for Sandy Palmer. His grandfather tries to have the club closed but is exposed as an ex-bootlegger. Written by
Watered down "Beach Party" swipe, with James Darren (as Ding Pruitt) and Pamela Tiffin (as Sandy Palmer) playing a slightly older, more conservative Frankie and Annette. Obviously, Woody Woodbury (as Woody Woodbury) is meant to represent the title "For Those Who Think Young"; he hosts the local hang-out, which is threatened with closure by the unhip. "Uncle" Woody overloads the joint with tired jokes and topical humor; and, the zaniness present in the "American International" series is non-existent.
In hindsight, the most interesting thing about "For Those Who Think Young" may be the appearance of Tina Louise and Bob Denver before "Gilligan's Island"; they both sing songs, and have no scenes together. Ms. Louise shows off her figure well, and Mr. Denver romances a dark-haired Nancy Sinatra. You'll also get to see Ellen Burstyn get drunk in a purple hat while investigating underage drinking. An underutilized Michael Nader gives the film's best performance. Paul Lynde and George Raft kick up no sand.
** For Those Who Think Young (6/3/64) Leslie H. Martinson ~ James Darren, Pamela Tiffin, Woody Woodbury
