The Beach Girls And The Monster (1965)

Starring Jon Hall, Sue Casey, Walker Edmiston, Elaine DuPont, Arnold Lessing
Directed by Jon Hall
(actor & director credits courtesy

A teenager rebelling against his father's career plans for him by partying on the beach with his friends is shaken when one of his friends is murdered, apparently by a terrifying monster.

A horror/musical of sorts, in the same vein as The Horror Of Party Beach, per IMDB, this film was the last one of Jon Hall's career, after a long career as a leading man in films such as The Hurricane, Invisible Agent, and Arabian Nights, although this is a much lower budgeted production, which Hall also directed.  As a movie, running just over an hour, it's entertaining, and a fun diversion, but not particularly distinguished in any department, and the monster is just a man in a rubber suit.
