Trivia

The scene at the diner was filmed in Toronto for the purpose of depicting PCC-type streetcars that ran in Brooklyn during the time period the movie is set in. However, the streetcars seen in the movie are postwar models characterized by the presence of standee windows, something that prewar PCCs such as the ones that operated in Brooklyn did not have. They also have the maroon and cream paint scheme used in Toronto while Brooklyn's PCCs were predominantly tan. See more »

Goofs

In the scene at the beach, roughly 15 minutes into the film, the boys are listening to a baseball game on the radio. The game is between the Brooklyn Dodgers (now L.A) and the New York Giants (now San Francisco). The announcer indicates that the score in Giants 5 and Dodgers 1 with Ace Adams pitching in the bottom of the 9th inning. The play-by-play goes on with the game ending with Giants 5 over the Dodgers with 4. When checking baseball statistics with all games between the two teams from 1941 to 1946 with Ace Adams pitching, there's no game that ends with this score. It's very likely that recordings of baseball games were not archived during this period, except for very important games and World Series games. The recording is very likely a recreation using names of players who were on these teams in 1944, but not an actual broadcast. See more »

Good Sequel! But a slight let down in some ways
25 May 2005 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This is a good sequel to the first hit "Summer of '42". Going past junior year would be a total drag. Even without Jennifer O'Neill, this movie is alright. Going to fight for the U.S. is a patriotic thing back in the forties. Even though Dorothy's husband was the casualty, Oscy the silly friend of Hermie takes action to join the cause. Benji was the jealous type. He wanted to join the Marines just like Oscy. Unlike Oscy, Benji paid the price for scheming his way to the Marines. He got stuck in a desk job. So Benji tell Hermie that you better off in college. Hermie gets a new girl closer to his age. Julie, who goes to the same college as Hermie. Hermie's new dilemma that he lost his father, and he's just don't know what to do anymore. Well he's got Julie and he needs to move on with his life, for years to come. This movie was more based on the guys two years later, and I bet Dorothy would be glad to see that Hermie is happy. However, this movie was not quite like the first one, and it was a little on the somber side. Still a collectible though for the series. At least it was worth a try. I like the first movie much better! Rating 3 out of 5 stars.
