**** Top 4 Sandra Dee movies

Note:   "A Summer Place" becomes a favorite movie to both adults and teens. The movie story is taken from the book of the same name--"A Summer Place" by Sloan Wilson. The story begins and ends at a summer place, an island. It spans many years and follows the love/conflict relationship between two sets of characters, a teen set (Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue) and their parents (Richard Egan and Dorothy McGuire). It explores the pressure that social mores place upon a teen couple and their parents, when they break those rules. The book is steamy and the romance is tamed down for the movie---but the movie does have steamy moments. Audiences are wowed by the acting and the epic story.

1962 Movie:   "If a Man Answers" co-stars Bobby Darin as the husband who Sandra Dee's character attempts to train.

Music: Calendar Girl
