Summer of '42

Overview

Sex and love combine for a magical, coming-of-age summer in director Robert Mulligan's surprise hit Summer of '42. Warner has done a decent job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. While certainly not a perfect transfer (there is a bit of grain and edge enhancement in the image), overall this is a very nice looking picture that sports vibrant colors and well defined black levels. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital Mono in English and French and is, not surprisingly, less than impressive. While the ...

While certainly not a perfect transfer (there is a bit of grain and edge enhancement in the image), overall this is a very nice looking picture that sports vibrant colors and well defined black levels. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital Mono in English and French and is, not surprisingly, less than impressive. While the soundtracks are free of any distortion or hiss, this is a very lifeless mix that is flat and uninspired (a pity, since the score to the film won a much-deserved Oscar). Also included on this disc are French, English, and Spanish subtitles. The only extra feature available on this DVD is a theatrical trailer for the movie.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
An unexpected hit, Summer of '42 provided a soothing dose of nostalgia amidst the late 1960s/early '70s cultural upheaval. Looking back to a more innocent time through a (literal) gauze of affectionate memory, Herman Raucher's Oscar-nominated wartime coming of age screenplay evokes a period of sexual naïveté and life-changing infatuations that stood in stark contrast to the Vietnam War era, revealing what had been lost. Directing a cast of relative unknowns, Robert Mulligan manages to make the tiny details ring true even as the broad strokes are somewhat too predictable; Jennifer O'Neill's performance as the enigmatic love object turned her into a star. A respite from troubled times, Summer of '42 surprised its makers by turning into the fourth highest-grossing film of 1971, becoming one of a cluster of popular early 1970s nostalgia pieces that also included The Last Picture Show (1971) and American Graffiti (1973). Robert Surtees earned an Oscar nomination for his hazily picturesque cinematography; Michel Legrand won an Oscar for his score.
