You can’t spell Annette Funicello without “Fun” and “Nice,” two words that sum up this former “Mouseketeer” perfectly. She became America’s sweetheart on the original Mickey Mouse Club in the ‘50s. Parents adored her, girls wanted to be her, and boys wanted to do her. Annette left the show in ’59, still loaded with moxy and now buxom and foxy. She used her connections (and ample bosom) to record thirty-one hit records and star in a bevy of beloved beach films such as Beach Party (1963), Bikini Beach (1964), and Beach Blanket Bingo (1965). Although Annette knew how to stuff her bodacious body into a wild bikini, flaunting her full figure in every flick, she retained her giggling sweetness and vulnerability. Co-star Frankie Avalon said of Annette, “She doesn’t have a bad bone in her body, she’s the sweetest girl I know.” The former surfer stud failed to mention his case of the old two blues while working with this curvaceous cutie, an ailment shared by many, based on a longing to deflower one of America’s favorite celluloid virgins.
