Director: lan Rafkin Run Time: 90 min. Format: 35mm Rating: NR Release Year: 1965 Starring: Frankie Avalon, Dwayne Hickman, Deborah Walley Hit the slopes of hilarity with THE DEUCE this December, for a SKI PARTY with all the "ski-nicks and ski-chicks" at Times Square's New Amsterdam theater circa 1965! "Beach Movie" bozos Frankie Avalon and Dwayne Hickman are college besties who find that their feeble attempts at dating are falling flat with the girls… so they decide to become some themselves – donning dresses and tresses in a desperate attempt to sneak a peek at the feminine psyche during a school ski trip! And while they're learning nothing about what the girls want in a guy, the BMOC uber-hunk "somehow" develops the hots for "lady" Dwayne! It's powder-puffs in the powder as the Beach-Blanket-Bingo crowd take their bikinis to the snowy slopes for a surreal swirl of sight-gags, slapstick, stupid stunts and lo-fi special-effects in Sun Valley! Hijinks and high-jumps! Lesley Gore go-go-ing on a school bus!! James Brown and The Famous Flames as a cardigan singing ski-patrol! With genre-fave Dick Miller taking a turn as a taxi-cab driver, and a pesky yodeling polar bear that keeps randomly popping up?!?
