Storyline

Goody-goody girl journalist Kelly Olsson (Ann-Margret Olsson) poses as a "swinger" to impress the horny stud editor of "Girl-lure" men's magazine (Tony Franciosa) to get him to publish her steaming sex story instead of her posing as his next nude centerfold. She spends the rest of the movie convincing the Girl-lure staff she is the girl in the story she has written about. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

Although production wrapped in late 1965, a campy pop art prologue/epilogue (comic book-style words like "POW!," "WHAM!", etc. superimposed over Ann-Margret as she swung across screen on a swing, echoing Bye Bye Birdie (1963)'s filmic bookends) was subsequently filmed to cash in on the success of TV's Batman (1966), which debuted in early 1966.

George Sydney Does It Again!!
10 August 2001 | by FORREST136See all my reviews

Ann-Margret looks lovely in this campy in this musical comedy from the 60's! She opens and closes the fim singing as she did in "Bye Bye Birdie"! Mary La Roach plays her mther again also! Its a real period piece.the clothes and the hairdos are very 60's! If you love Ann- Margret you will love "The Swinger"!
