Where The Boys Are (1960)

George Hamilton, Dolores Hart, Paula Prentiss and Jim Hutton star in this silly musical, about college boys and girls in search of romance during their Easter vacation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Against this background of youthful sun-seeking and partying, the action focuses on the contrasting relationships that develop between four girls and guys, of whom Paula Prentiss (her debut) and Jim Hutton are the most charming.

Good-natured, nostalgic stuff with an interesting moral take on virginity, which was still a major issue at the time. Dolores Hart, for example, hangs on to hers and is rewarded with George Hamilton, while Yvette Mimieux learns that giving in doesn’t pay!

The movie never pretends to be anything other than what it is – a teenage beach movie.
