When the girls weren't singing in a studio, they were singing on a movie set. Here are 1960s movies with girl groups.

Sure, Annette got plenty of exposure--especially with that pointy bra! But other girl groups and girl-group-style singers appeared in movies. Other than Annette, most artists appeared as themselves and performed, rather than playing a character.
