Susan Strasberg does not look like she's in her late 30's (strange comment as she was a very youthful looking 29 in the film). She may look a few years older than a teenager (may--it's subjective) but she looks completely age appropriate to be with Christopher Jones and is completely believable as a young innocent woman. As for her "troubles at home," the only troubles at home were with Christopher Jones. As lovely as they are here, he wasn't a great husband. As for her character, yes "Bunny" is a woman who appears to live for her relationship with Chubasco but so does Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. There were not as many opportunities for a young woman in the 1960's especially as she's still living at home with very strict parents. We are meeting her before she lives as an adult and develops other passions. Hopefully, she will.
