Description
Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue star in this enduring favorite about desire and tumult at an elite Maine resort, from the bestseller by Sloan Wilson (The Man In The Gray Flannel Suit). In his first movie lead, Donahue is strong, handsome and unshakably devoted as lovestruck Johnny Hunter. And 17-year-old Dee is pixieish Molly, a woman/child struggling to cope with adult emotions. Set to a lush Max Steiner score that produced one of the most unforgettable movie themes ever, this box-office hit also stars adults (Dorothy McGuire, Richard Egan, Arthur Kennedy, Constance Ford) also romantically at odds. As Johnny, Molly and their parents discover, love will find a way. They've already found the locale: A Summer Place.

        I have loved this movie since I was a young girl and I'm 57 now. It is just timeless and the music is fantastic. A nicer, simpler, more innocent time and that is why I like it.

                    Teenage Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue are physically adorable. Plot involves family secrets that repeat on the next generation, but hard to identify with in the new millennium.

                                It had been many, many years since my wife and I had seen the movie that it was just like seeing it for the first time. It was very enjoyable with a happy ending which we always like happy endings! And the characters and actors seemed more real than some of the current actors and characters. Most of the movies now are not worth watching, but this is truly one of the good ones.

                                      This is one of my favorite movies. Kind of corney and out of date, but I think that's part of the appeal. Times really have changed—it is hard to believe some of the topics (such as divorce) were ever considered so scandalous.
