"In front of God and everyone!",
This review is from: A Summer Place [VHS] (VHS Tape)
It's the summer of 1959, and innocent Molly (Sandra Dee) meets handsome Johnny (Troy Donahue) on a secluded island off the coast of Maine. Her father (Richard Eagan) and his mother (Dorothy Maguire) were lovers years ago, and have renewed their romance, despite both having spouses. The kids fall in love, too, spend some time at the beach, and everything is great...until Molly gets some bad news from the doctor.
Dee and Donahue were the epitome of wholesome, sexy teenagers back in the day, and they are still beautiful to look at. This film was considered quite racy when it was released; it's more PG today, but still intense and thought-provoking. It's a trip back to a simpler time with stricter morals. And could anyone ever forget that gorgeous theme music? It IS the music of young love. This is still a great movie to watch with someone you love...or a bowl of popcorn!
