A Summer Place DVD

SKU ID #317138
$19.98
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.

Comments about this product:

I was fortunate to see this first at the theater. I have loved it ever since. It was consider PG13 at the time it was made, although the rating system had not yet evolved. The chemistry between the actors was great. However, the subject of the story doesn't seem relevant for today's society. But, back in the 60's it was very relevant. I like the romance, the passion, the drama,of this film. Glad to have it in my collection.

          This is an adorable story of young love and hot passion. Troy Donahue & Sandra Dee were made for each other. Richard Egan & Dorothy McGuire are good together.
          Beautiful music and scenery. I absolutely love the theme song to "A Summer Place" as it is romantic and stirring.

                  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.

                                            My kid's didn't even think we had problems like this in our day's. Very good movie on a Saturday night with entire family and Pizza.
