Trivia

Unlike its prequel Summer of '42, Class of '44 is more of a fictional work. There are several fictional elements in this film. One of them was that this film was supposed to be based on the boys facing army service in the Korean War. But it was changed to World War 2. 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 »

A worthy sequel tothe Summer of '42
31 December 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This sequel to the "Summer of '42" carries on the themes set out in the original film and delves deeper into the minds of the characters. While fans of the first film may wish to see more of Jennifer O'Neill's character, unfortunately she does not appear in this film and there is no mention of her character at all. That aside, however, this film allows you to learn more about Hermie and Oscy and the paths their lives take. Deborah Winters role as Hermie's college love interest works well and the characters have chemistry on screen. If you liked the "Summer Of '42" you should enjoy the "Class Of '44". You just may be disappointed not to see any more of Hermie and Dorothy's relationship or the impact of the summer of '44.
