Slippery When Wet 1958

Bruce Brown shot 8mm films of surfers when he was stationed in Hawaii back in the 1950's.  After moving back to California, Dale Velzy gave him $5000 to shoot a 16mm film promoting the Velzy surf team.  Brown narrates and Bud Shank provides the soundtrack.  The goofy narration in these films is what makes it for me.
