Winding curves and smashing dead ends make SUMMER PLACE a truly ironic tale of unrequited love and teenage lust. When a business man, Ken Jorgenson (Richard Egan) takes his wife, Helen (Constance Ford) and his daughter Molly (Sandra Dee) to an island off the coast of Maine, little does he suspect that he will rekindle the teenage love affair he once had with the now married Sylvia (Dorothy McGuire). Now it seems that events are going to repeat themselves when her son (Troy Donahue) and his daughter meet and fall in love. Subtle at first, SUMMER PLACE unfolds like a easy love story, but the surprise ending makes it difficult to forget.
This movie some may say, is a bit old fashioned and corny. I am a baby boomer and I loved movies such as this one. It gives you the total idea of the sexual nature but pulls back and leaves you with subline imagination. Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue were hot stars back in the late 50's. They portray two teens passionately in love, but caught up in their parents affairs. A great movie for all who want to see how film makers did it, without all that R rated sex and it still comes across.

Well the title of the movie explains it all. A romantic saga that includes adults as well as young people. The same things that are happening today with the difference of two yound people that take responsibility for their mistakes. Enjoyable movie however I don't know if it will bore the young people watching it since the s_x scenes are so discreet that you have to use your imagination since they only show kissing and everything else is viewed with a scenery. Good Movie.
