Storyline

Premarital sex, secrets, and society. At 17, shy Susan Slade is on her way to California after a ten-year stay at a remote Chilean mine where her father was chief engineer. Onboard ship, she's romanced by Conn White, a handsome mountain climber on his way to Alaska. Home in Monterey, Susan longs to hear from Conn. Two locals also take a shine to her - Hoyt Brecker, a horse wrangler who's the son of a criminal, and Wells Corbett, a sweet guy who lives in his high-society parents' shadow. Jump ahead two years, Susan has a desperate secret that her socially-conscious mother won't let her share. Can Susan find happiness - and what is it really that turns a girl into a woman?

Trivia

In the scene where Susan rides her birthday horse, Chulo, for the first time, there was a cameo by champion stud Captain Topper, a Shetland pony born in 1956. He was adjudged the greatest model stallion at the National Congress Pony Show in 1958 and 1959, and won 17 championships and 40 blue ribbons. Captain Topper was purchased for $6000 by Miss Patricia Burton of Detroit, who operated a stud farm on the Monterey peninsula. See more »

A memorable film!!
17 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have loved this film from the time I saw it as a pre-teen in the late 60's. This is one of about half a dozen films that stayed with me through adulthood. I realize by todays standards this is fluff and possibly corny, but I love it none the less. I am so tired of all the sex, violence and profanity! It is so refreshing to see a film that deals with an unplanned pregnancy, but you didn't have to see the sex act to get the impact of this situation. I think anyone who loved A Summer Place, Parrish, Palm Springs Weekend or Rome Adventure will love this film too. I was lucky enough to get it on DVD, and I watch it every couple of weeks or whenever I need to be transported back to a kinder, gentler time. If you have the opportunity to see this film, don't miss it!!
