I loved this movie!
27 April 2006 | by (chicago, illinois) – See all my reviews

I saw this one when it first came out in 1968. Loved it then although now it's as dated as a beach blanket bingo movie. David Niven actually throws a fit because his 17 year old daughter might have lost her virginity. Like, "Heavens to Betsy!" Pretty dated even then. Worth watching for the funny performances and the warm nostalgia for the 60's. Christina Ferrare is stunning and I'll never understand why she didn't become a bigger star. Film suffers from a cheap low budget back lot appearance. They even used rear projection for the beach scenes! Too cheap to go to the ocean? But I still recommend it for the warm nostalgic feeling for the times.
