Grace Caldwell, a young Pennsylvania newspaper heiress living with her widowed mother, has trouble restraining herself when it comes to the amorous attentions of young men. As word starts to spread about her behavior, Grace becomes a major source of heartache for her mother and a big source of concern to her brother, Brock. One evening, at a Christmas party, Grace meets Sidney Tate, a gentleman farmer. They fall in love, and he asks her to marry him. Grace accepts, but only after making it clear that there are some things about her past she's not at all proud of. Sidney is taken aback by Grace's candid admission, but still wants to marry her. Grace promises to be faithful to Sidney; it's a promise she has every intention of keeping, until a former casual acquaintance, Roger Bannon, re-enters her life. Written by

From John O'Hara's novel, a tale of lust which predictably plays out like a junior-version of his earlier bestseller, "BUtterfield 8". In a picturesque Pennsylvania town, wealthy co-ed Suzanne Pleshette develops a rage for men after a neighborhood kid forces himself on her (her lips say "no no!" but her eyes say "yes yes!"). Pleshette is a cool-as-ice tease, a martini-dry tramp, but her indiscretions (though perhaps eyebrow-raising for 1965) are no more intriguing than your average daytime TV drama. Gleemingly photographed, sumptuously scored, yet the tatty supporting cast backing La Suzanne give hint this is just B-grade goods in a glossy package. Fun for camp-addicts only; there's nothing here to take seriously. ** from ****
