Two "underage" teens from different social classes have a strong attraction
17 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has a lot going for it. A good cast and good performances anchor an intelligent story, written by Tony Anthony. The score is by Lionel Hampton who plays vibes throughout and makes an appearance to sing a blues. The kinds of issues explored here (and done well) involve teenage love, teenagers coming of age, family obligations and bonds, growing to be oneself, making one's future, and finding one's own happiness.

The 50s and 60s saw a spate of movies in a similar vein such as Rebel Without A Cause (1955). These family and social issues, as they affected young people, were starting to open up into a degree of openness that had previously been absent. In this movie, in one scene we see a mild influence of beatnik culture on teenagers. This movie is a low-budget, unpretentious but nonetheless effective affair.

It's 1960. It's Florida. J. Carroll Naish, a widower, runs a grocery store with the help of his son, Tony Anthony, in his first acting role in the movies. He continued acting, writing and became a producer. Tony is 17. He and Robert Alda's daughter, 16-year old Teri Hope (September, 1958 Playboy Playmate of the Month) have strong feelings for each other that they are sorting out. This is not 1980 where they'd jump into bed, not that they do not feel like it or come close to it. But, for various reasons, they exercise restraint. Alda is in the country club set. Tony feels shut out from that and from going to college. He's trying to make his way to being important. The path isn't clear. Teri, like Tony, is alternately flighty and mature.

There is acting support from actress Jeff Donnell, who appeared in many TV series subsequently, and already has a long movie career that began in 1942. And there is support from Jody McCrea, oldest son of Joel McCrea. I doubt that his dad ever gave a bad performance, at least in any movie I've ever seen him in, and that includes a long string of strong westerns and the memorable Foreign Correspondent.

Don't expect a great deal of action. Expect "smaller" happenings that have to do with the ordinary or involve a character's feelings. The main action centers around a dance at the country club, attended by Tony at Teri's invitation, and its aftermath.

This drama wisely doesn't attempt to resolve all the issues and tie everything up into a neat little package. It is like life, where problems never disappear completely, or else new ones pop up. Still, the viewer will feel a sense of satisfaction at the resolution.
