The casting carries this movie
30 May 2014 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

"Summer Love" was a sequel to a 1956 movie, "Rock, Pretty Baby," carrying over many of the same cast members. Here, we have the same rock combo in a summer camp setting.

Filmed in summer 1957, and released the following spring, what sticks out for me is the interesting music--and the casting. We have older actors, such as Edward Platt and King Kong's Fay Wray. Rod McKuen makes an appearance here, and Shelly Fabares has an early role here.

The two people who really come to mind here are lead actor John Saxon, and Jill St. John, making her second big-screen appearance. This movie really began her movie career, one that lasted until 2002. One unusual aspect of her role here is that her voice seems lower in pitch than in most of her other movies. But it may be because she plays a teen femme fatale.

Too bad Turner Classic Movies has not aired this. It's not a world classic movie, but definitely worth a watch to see so many performers at an early stage in their career.
