Storyline

Gordon Slide and Blythe Holloway are platonic BFFs and fellow students at small San Paleo College. Gordon is bright - perhaps too smart for his own good as his smart-alecky way makes him the bane of anyone in authority. Blythe, on the other hand, is unwise to the general ways of the world. As such, Gordon acts as her protector, sort of like a big brother. Dr. Frawley, the school's dean, believes Gordon is a bad influence on Blythe, and thus forbids the two to associate with each other. Neither Gordon or Blythe want to spend their two week Easter break with their respective family, Gordon's being his jet setting playgirl twice divorced mother, Sandra Slide, who is vacationing in Hawaii, and Blythe's being her straight-laced widowed Colorado senator father, Clyde Holloway. Gordon devises a plan for him and Blythe to spend their Easter break together in his mother's empty beach front house in Balboa. Gordon's plan may be threatened if either of their parents or Dr. Frawley find out that,... Written by Huggo

Tommy Sands, Icon
5 January 2005 | by (San Diego USA) – See all my reviews

A good movie with Tommy Sands headlining..but where is the release? If this was released and made available to the public, they would be acquainted again with Mr. Sands and enjoy his talent even more. He was a really good singer and one who broke many molds in the recording industry and is not receiving the recognition. He was first with the MTV style, he was discovered by the Colonel long before Elvis, he made movies with true acting ability, and he married a famous singers daughter who tried to sing. His story is out there for the telling and now can be told since the strong hold is gone. Tommy deserves more. He has paid his dues and its time this country embraced him and declared him a national treasure.
