Format: VHS Tape
This film is great teenage fun and fun for the whole family. It's all about a group of college kids and other adolescents all converging on a resort town during Spring break thanks to Director Norman Taurog, Screenwriter Earl Hamner Jr. and a solid cast.
This was another Warner Brothers vehicle for Troy Donahue, who had just completed four quality productions with director Delmar Daves. This is not a bad film and is quite fun to watch. Troy even sings the title song behind the credits! It is chockfull of character actors and many television veterans from the 60s all the way up through the 90s. See if you can pick them out. They were all pretty young!
Troy Donahue also appeared on TV in "Surfside 6" and "Hawaiian Eye." Troy Donahue, born Merle Johnson, Jr. studied journalism at Columbia University and began appearing in stock productions. He entered into films with Universal and Warner Brothers.
Thanks, Troy Donahue! The good-times cast includes Connie Stevens, Robert Conrad, Ty Hardin, Stefanie Powers, Andrew Duggan, Jack Weston, Jerry Van Dyke, Billy Mumy and Carole Cook. Don't forget Troy!
This is one of the best VHS prints I have ever seen. It is excellent.

I remember seeing this film for the first time on television in 1968 or 1969 and have been waiting for a DVD release for years.It was worth the wait!No,this film from Warner Brothers isn't great art but it's a lot of fun.A number of Warner Bros. contract players including Robert Conrad,Troy Donahue,Ty Hardin and Connie Stevens appear in this film as well as a young Stephanie Powers and Jerry Van Dyke.The 1963 film made during the peak of the beach movie cycle follows the misadventures of a group of college students who descend on Palms Springs for a weekend during spring break.A lot of the characters and situations are standard cliches,but this doesn't stop this film from being fun.This DVD was originally part of a package of films from Warner Bros. showcasing Troy Donahue.Other films in the set include Parrish and A Summer Place.

What a great film. Not as kitchy as the Avalon/Funicello films but lots of fun bits and great characters. Zeme North is just great as the "plain girl" Amanda; Jerry Van Dyke is a terrific goof ball, and Robert Conrad plays the bad rich boy with gusto.
The VHS quality is very good and the film is wonderful fun for the whole family -- although my kids can't believe college kids actually wore jackets and ties to a party. Probably the most fun is watching Troy Donahue and Stephanie Powers do their crazy version of the twist. Gotta love this film.

Often overlooked in the accolades given this film is that it marks the (uncredited) feature film debut of Tina Cole, who later starred in the classic television series "Hawaiian Eye", "My Three Sons", "John Davidson's Kraft Summer Music Hall" and "The King Family Show."
Tina's unforgettable potrayal of the betrayed "good girl" Ruth Stewart captures the entire spectrum of teenage angst. Her brief time on the screeen portends a film future which other stars can only hope to emulate.

I haven't seen this movie for years so when I was looking around at 60's movies, I came across this one. It's a typical summer party comedy for the time period about college kids vacationing in Palm Springs and all the misadventures that happen. A great movie if you just want some time to relax and not think too much.

This movie is a classic....the cast were playing characters much younger than they were but oh so hot. They all were in their prime...and we all remember what that was like...its is just fun...no sex...foul language-just a summer break with the hunks and dolls of the day's...wish I could turn back time.

I was only seven years old when "Palm Springs Weekend" was released on 5 Nov1963, just 17 days before JFK was killed. I imagine that put a damper on the ticket sales that might have been expected during Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I may have seen this movie on our black and white TV, but I don't remember ever seeing it until two years ago.
This movie brought back memories of of how pretty the women used to dress and the beautiful up-do hairstyles. My mom went to beauty school in 1967 and practiced some of those styles on me and her mother. I have always been a Connie Stevens and Robert Conrad fan. I have read comments how people hate Connie Stevens, instead of hating the role she played. Her role was sort of a golddigger, but she is young and learns her lesson. I recently heard Robert Conrad (He has a Thurs night radio show on CRN.com) tell how he met Connie when she was 19 and how they have remained great friends all these years. The other famous actors in the movie gave it a more pizazz than the other movie it is compared to, "Where the Boys Are." It was also fun to see some of the record albums on the shelf at the record shop because we had them in our home. Some viewers don't like the silly antics, but remember that going to the drive-in with the whole family was very popular as a cheap night, out sans babysitter fees. I think this movie had appeal for all ages.
So, while not an Oscar quality film, it does bring back some good memories. Too bad our culture has degraded so much since then and we can't turn back the clock.
