Jon Stebbins writes about the film at page 46 of his biography of David Marks, "The Lost Beach Boy."
On July 28, 1962 the group's performance at the Azusa Teen Club of "Surfin' Safari" was filmed for this "low budget documentary examining
the growing Southern California phenomenon of teen delinquents with too much time on their hands. In the film,
the Azusa club is held up as an example of a place where young people could gather to blow off steam
while dancing to their favorite combos. This is the only known performance footage of the Pendleton-shirt era Beach Boys .
During the performance, David is seen smiling, tossing his surfer cut, and chopping away on his sunburst Fender Stratocaster."
