A Summer Place
|Now, who could this be?|
|The Summer Place in Question|
I get that it was controversial in its day but let's just say the conversations between the father and daughter seemed icky to me - telling her father the boy next door used to watch her so she deliberately undressed with the curtains open, asking him if she bounces when she walks ("in a pleasant way", he responds) and talking about her 'naughty dreams' while snuggled up on the bed. I found these discussions a tad... uncomfortable.
Anyway, long story short; the young couple have a sailing mishap, their parents' adultery comes to light and they are forbidden to see each other again.
But of course, true love conquers all. Their respective adulterous parents marry each other and the teens are invited to stay with them in another summer place. This one is more my kind of place:
"Frank Lloyd Wright designed our house" she says smugly as she chauffeurs her new stepdaughter around their poky little beach cottage. Well, to be fair, she was quite matter of fact about it, but that only irritated me more.

|Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee!|
Teen Boy and Teen Girl meet again and get all hot and heavy. Well, wouldn't you if you had this available?
|As for you, Troy Donahue...|
I, however, am more interested in the house...and the hat - where can I get me one of those?
