Rockin' Funnies: Ho Daddy (Surf's Up) (1964)

Bob Denver was in between his two iconic TV gigs when he made the movie, "For Those Who Are Young", released in June 1964, about 3 1/2 months before Gilligan's Island premiered. One of his future fellow castaways, Tina Louise, is also in the picture, along with Paul Lynde, James Darren, George Raft, Nancy Sinatra (whose father, Frank, produced the movie through his production company), and future Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn.

Scope out Bob as a beach bum who breaks into the song, "Ho Daddy (Surf's Up)". I think this might be his only contribution to the Golden Throat archive.
