Heartbreak for Gidget
5 September 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Gidget's (Sally Field) father (Don Porter) has left and her sister Anne (Betty Conner) and her brother-in-law John (Pete Duel) are in charge. They allow her to spend the weekend at the surfing competitions at Oceanside. Unknown to Gidget, John and Anne pay a guy $25 to "keep a big brotherly eye on her without her knowing". The guy turns out to be surfing competitor Scott Baker (Carl Reindel). Scott asks Gidget to be her date for the weekend and to go to a dance that night. Scott's girlfriend Sally (Bridget Hanley) shows up at the dance to make up with him. When the situation is explained to Sally, Gidget overhears and is hurt. She eventually finds solace in Richie Ryan (David Macklin). However, Scott goes to try and make things right.
