A Summer Place

Original Theatrical Date: November 18, 1959

Teen idols Troy Donahue—in his debut—and Sandra Dee (Gidget) star in this story of young love and an old romance which threatens to destroy two families during a summer holiday off the coast of Maine. 

Co-starring Oscar-nominee Arthur Kennedy (Peyton Place and Rich Man, Poor Man), A Summer Place also features a beautiful score by Max Steiner (Gone With the Wind) and the #1 hit song, "Theme from a Summer Place."

Young, innocent and in love on an idyllic island, Johnny (Donahue) and Molly (Dee) face the anger and guilt unleashed by the dissolution of their parents' relationships after Molly's father (Richard Egan) rekindles an affair he had with Johnny's mother before either was married.

Now, can young love survive as Johnny and Molly witness the loss of the passion their parents once felt in this classic romance?

Based on the novel by Sloan Wilson.
