The film A Swingin' Summer is sometimes billed as Raquel's first staring role (1). It is produced during the golden era of beach movies, but with a European attitude. Raquel wears glasses and has her hair in a bun (2), although it does get wet (3). The standing, hair-down-to-the shoulders publicity pose pretty much says it all, and casts the silhoutte of the mid-1960s (4). Note the criss-cross supports at the xiphoid (5)
Raquel's sensational white bikini pinup (RW196420) establish the bikini as her costume.
This particular silhouette dominates Raquel's costumes throughout the mid-1960s (RW196520).
