It's tawdry but it's fun (and pretty clean since made for TV)
15 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always dug Barbara Bain from her "Mission Impossible" days to the present, so I was sure to tune in when "A Summer Without Boys" was on TV waaaaaay back in 1973. I can still remember some scenes vividly. Kay Lenz does a great turn as the inhibited daughter, but the real scene stealer in this one is Debralee Scott who gets Kay to go out with some sailors for a "fun time" during which they play strip poker (or spin the bottle...whutever) and Debralee has to take off her top (she manages to wiggle out of her bra and pull it out from underneath her top which keeps her from having to expose her breasts but that pisses off the sailors who are counting on a "good time" which they invariably don't get. Debralee seems to always come off as genuine in her roles as typically "cheap" girls, though I expect she's really a pretty nice person in real life and far above the "white trash" sorts of standards her roles frequently demanded. If this ever turns up on TV again, tape it and let me know -- I'd like to see it again!
