Teenage lovers from different classes and since married unhappily come together and rekindle their romance, whilst at the same time their teenage children begin a passionate love affair all of which has drastic consequences for everyone concerned. From the steamy Sloane Wilson novel comes this thoroughly enjoyable potboiler featuring stunning locations, cinematography, performances of a high calibre…..and lots of drama!! Troy Donahue shines in his screen debut alongside teen superstar Sandra Dee and Constance Ford works very hard for all concerned – audience and cast – to thoroughly despise her!! A balance is provided by the apt grounded performances of Richard Egan and the very loverly Dorothy McGuire. Come and enjoy a classic that broke new moral ground from a much simpler time!!
