    Classic Romance

    I agree with so many other reviews. This movie is classic romance with the top teen stars of their time, Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. I was a young girl when this movie came out. I connected with the teen romance in the movie. As I got older I started connecting with the adult actors in the movie. New & seasoned love, revenge, family bonding and more is the substance of this movie and its great. I LOVE Sandra Dee in this movie and had a real crush on Richard Egan after hearing is heartfelt line in the movie, "I love you too much to speak" hmmmmm. Its about time it came out on DVD. Check out "Imitation of Life"(my absolute favorite movie with Sandra Dee, Lana Turner, John Gavnin, & excellent performances by Juanita Moore),

    Great movie soap!

    I loved this movie! Great movies like this, that don't need to show everything in order for you to understand and know what they are all doing...It's terrific...I never thought Troy Donahue could act, but in spite of him, the movie is very entertaining. And, of course, who can forget the wonderful music!! That is probably the most recognized and loved movie theme in this movie genre...

    What a romantic movie!

    I was only a little kid when this movie first came out, however, I watched it over and over when it came on television. I bought it later when it came out on VHS, but now, on DVD, it will be much more enjoyable to watch. The romance was not just between Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue's character, remember, her father and his mother had been in love with each other before...It's very romantic. Arthur Kennedy, he played Troy Donahue's father, was a really magnificent actor. I just love this movie, you will too!

    MORE Sandra Dee

    I own vhs copy have waited forever for dvd. Do not understand why Sandra's movies are so hard to get on dvd. At least 6 or 8 more should be Romanoff,Portrait Black, Take her she's mine all her Tammy movies.

    Timeless message, in spite of when it was made

    It's rare to feel such compassion for a character, but poor Sandra Dee's character is cursed with a mother so evil that you'd kill her yourself if you had access! This was a classic study of how screwed up parents can selfishly screw up their kids' lives, and how their own ''screwed-up-ness'' started when they were, most likely, the children of screwed up parents themselves. The cast (other than the malignantly evil Constance Ford) are lovable and well cast, especially Arthur Kennedy, as Troy Donahue's drunken father -- one of my favorite characters in any film! His wit and timing are brilliant. And, if you love blond hunks as much as I do, you'll salivate over the compassionate, smoldery John Hunter, played by Troy Donahue. It's no wonder the film was such a huge hit when it came out. The cinematography and and the musical score are unforgettable. I'm an aspiring screenwriter, and this is one of my all-time favorite films (and believe me, that's saying something because I've probably seen thousands!).
