Written by Herman Raucher, Summer of 42 is one of the screens most haunting romances. A nation is caught up in a war that will forever change it. At a New England beach colony, 15-year-old Hermie (Gary Grimes) is caught up in a passion that will forever change him: Hes infatuated with 22-year-old Dorothy (Jennifer ONeill), whose soldier husband is away at war. Director Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird) keeps a sharp eye on period detail and the comic potential of growing up, keenly observed in the work of Grimes, Jerry Houser and Oliver Conant as a terrible trio of fast friends. An Academy Award winner* for Michel Legrands score, Summer of 42 is the stuff of the fondest movie memories.
