The Maroon Cadillac DeVille convertible that the girls drive to Myrtle Beach is a 1964 model and since new models traditionally did not appear until September of the year before (9/63 for a 1964 model) it should not appear in a movie set in June (right after HS graduation) 1963. You can tell it's a 1964 model by the maroon (body colored) band across the center of the grille. See more »

I am from Myrtle Beach, SC ( where Shag takes place ) and I find the movie to be absolutely delightful. It takes place in the 60's with 4 young high school graduates just wanting to have a final hoo-rah before one of their best buds enters wedlock. The story follows the four girls through their very different weekends at the beach. All the while mingling the title of the movie with the actual dance that was and is all the craze on the Grand Strand. This movie is only rated PG but deals with a few stronger elements. It involves bad language, teen drinking and loss of virginity. Most will skim over children's heads, but parents still use caution. I watched the film a million times as a child and continue as an adult too. The movie is a perfect mix of scandal, mischief, young love, and music. Highly recommended as an all time favorite film.
