Trivia
During the fight scene there is a shot of one of the muscle girls hitting a surfer in the stomach twice, accompanied by a bass drum BOOM BOOM sound. That shot is used 11-1/2 times throughout the sequence - 10 times uninterrupted, the 11th is stopped by Peter Lorre's shout (for 10-1/2), and then one more complete shot after he leaves.

Goofs
During the fight scene, one of the surfer dudes manages to knock a muscle guy through a wall in front of a yellow surfboard and red-topped table. When Candy starts dancing, the second guy she "bumps" goes through that same, now undamaged, wall in front of the same yellow surfboard and red-topped table.

A helicopter is hovering over the beach. It is shown equipped with pontoons but its shadow clearly and repeatedly shows a helicopter with metal rails for landing gear.

Frankie refers to the "people for people" line directly after the scene in which it is said. However, he had already left that scene entirely by the time it was said and couldn't have heard it.
