"Great Movie!!"

If you can remember that ‘confusing time between childhood & adolescence, when hormones were raging… rather like being 'all dressed-up with nowhere to go..’ You'll identify with this movie.

In places, the cinematography is great. The plot is definitely there & it's a movie all guys will remember.

Maybe it will give the girls an insight to what is is to be a pubescent guy.......

Hey! I was there........ were you?


Written by Herman Raucher. Summer of '42 is one of the screen's most haunting romances. A nation is caught up in a war that will forever change it. At a New England beach colony, 15 year old Hermie is caught up in a passion that will forever change him: he's infatuated with 22 year old Dorothy whose solder/husband is away at war. Director Robert Mulligan keeps a sharp eye on period detail and the comic potential of growing up, keenly observed in the work of Grimes, Jerry Houser and Oliver Conant as a 'terrible trio' of fast friends. An Academy Award winner for Michel Legrand's score, Summer of '42 is the stuff of fondest movie memories.
