Did You Know?

Trivia

Based on a novel, the character of Dan was originally called David in the book but was changed for the movie, probably because director Frank Perry - then best known for his film David and Lisa (1962), also about troubled teens - wanted to avoid suggestion he was making a sequel/prequel about same character.

Finally, a teen beach movie without Frankie and Annette!
1 January 2003 | by pmsboyzSee all my reviews

One of the first teen-genre movies to show how cruel children can really be to one another. The sound has been regarded as bad and grainy by some, but to me, it put me right there on the beach with them. Stellar performances from the four young main characters, especially Richard Thomas and Catherine Burns (Supporting Actress nominee for this film). Barbara Hershey changed her last name to Seagull because of the impact a certain scene had on her. Bruce Davison is great as the sex-crazed boy trying to lose his virginity. The anti-climactic ending of being confused teens, struggling to understand the life going on around them and what could possibly lie ahead is one of the best. A chilling movie from 1969, this movie still holds up well and led the way for lesser imitations in the decades to come. An all-time favorite of mine, but if you watch it, don't bother with the edited version -- you'll miss so much.
