Summer Place, A
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.
