Information and Film Reviews for A Summer Place the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
2.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

Melodrama about summer liaisons amid the young and middle-aged rich on an island off the coast of Maine. Too slick; romantic drama is little more than skin-deep, and dialogue is excruciating. Donahue's first starring role. Based on the novel by Sloan Wilson. Featuring "Theme from a Summer Place," which was a number-one hit in 1959.
