A Swingin Summer: Watch Raquel Welch In Her Screen Debut!

"A Swingin' Summer is a beach party escapade that  features a bookworm with glasses who learns to "groove", as she attempts to sing "Ready to Groove."  That bookworm, by the way, is none other than Raquel Welch in her first screen role.


As the tagline goes,  "

They're Lovin', Laughin' and Livin' it up and for kicks playing "Chicken on Water Skis!"


Welch's first featured role came in the beach film A Swingin' Summer, which led to a contract with 20th Century Fox. She was subsequently cast in a leading role in the sci-fi hit Fantastic Voyage (1966), which made her a star. She was the last star created under the studio system.
