Edd Byrnes tries to get an ethnic-music-studies grant to buy instruments for his rock and roll group, the Wigglers. College-finance-committee members Chris Noel, Gail Gilmore, Mikki Jameson and Brenda Benet uncover the scam and tear up the check, but the Wigglers play a Long Beach, California custom-car show in drag and win first prize. The Supremes do “Come to the Beach Ball with Me” and “Surfer Boy;” the Four Seasons sing their 1964 hit “Dawn;” the Hondells sing Brian Wilson’s “My Buddy Seat;” the Righteous Brothers do “Baby What You Want Me to Do;” and the Walker Brothers cut loose with “Doin’ the Jerk.” Gary Kurtz of “Star Wars” fame was the assistant director. Beach Ball, the 1965 Lennie Weinrib rock ‘n’ roll (rock and roll) musical teen surfer beach comedy (“Nothing bounces like ‘Beach Ball'”; “A beachload of bouncy tunes and talent!”) starring Edward Byrnes (best remembered as “Kookie” on the “77 Sunset Strip” TV series; billed as “Edd Byrnes”), Chris Noel, The Supremes (including Diana Ross), The Four Seasons, The Righteous Brothers, The Hondells, and The Walker Brothers
