In the 1960s former Mousketeer Annette Funicello rivaled the Beatles in popularity when she starred with Frankie Avalon in a series of fun beach- and surfing-themed movies including “Beach Party,” “Muscle Beach Party,” and “Beach Blanket Bingo.” Annette’s gorgeous teased black manes and bouffants epitomized 1960s youth and glamour.
