Shirley Jones plays a young naive smitten girl, who decides -who knows why- to miss curfew and willfully lose her job to stay out with this womanizing rough and tough just fired carousel operator. Who knows why, since I failed to see anything attractive about him. But that was just first of many more stupid choices.
Maybe not being able to relate to the movie, the acting seemed superficial as well.
Since it made no sense, then there were not many reasons to enjoy the movie.
this movie kept me engaged from the very beginning to the very end. i will recommend this and i look forward to watching it many more times.
by far my favorite of this genre.
since IMDb mandates ten lines minimum in order to submit a review, i'd like to add that this movie and all its three main characters deserved an Oscar nomination, - nick nolte was the only who was nominated. also the editing deserved one imo.
i added spoiler alert only to play it safe.
too bad the only way to submit a review one must blab ten sentences.
i would skip this movie unless you enjoy arguments. i would personally just have my own argument.
from the get go, i was just waiting and hoping for the visiting couple to leave.... under the circumstances, it would have been best.
this made the rest of the movie pointless, and annoying. and no, i did not get any satisfaction from getting a feeling of intellectual superiority.
