One of the best things about this movie is the girl who plays Van Heflin's oldest daughter in the film. She asks her father's girlfriend for a tube of lipstick, and he's shocked. The little girl has already told her father that she has a boyfriend, and now this. She plainly explains to dad that she's going to give it to a TV star that has come up to the camping resort so the star can write her autograph. The father sits back relieved, as his girlfriend (Patricia Neal) gives him a sympathetic look. The little girl skips away, but not before informing her father that the color of the lipstick is not her shade, anyway.
Richard Denning also has a good role as a health nut who has designs on Patricia Neal's character. She has two sons, neither of which wants their mother to marry Denning and be subjected to a life of tofu and bean sprouts. This is a good family film for all.
