Sophistication isn't a matter of where you come from or even what your family does. It's the way you - the way you think, your outlook on life, what you've experienced.

While listening to a Connie Francis CD yesterday, I read the liner notes and found that she had made a few appearances in films. This morning, in one of those all too rare spooky coincidences, I found that Where The Boys Are was on TCM.
I watched with anticipation and smiled from start to finish - except of course when the comedy turned to drama, a transition that was expertly handled by the director.
A fun film in the tradition of Muscle Beach and Muscle Beach Party, with good performances all round and an excellent turn from Frank Gorshin. I shall never be able to listen to jazz in the same way again! It's a shame that Connie Francis did not appear on screen more often, as judging by this, her debut, she could easily have enjoyed as much success as an actress as she did a singer.
Not as camp as the two aforementioned Frankie Avalon classics, though I'm sure "Have You Met Miss Fandango?" had drag queens squealing with delight.
If you are ever in need of cheering up, you could do worse than to watch this.
