Little Darlings primarily concerns a contest between two 15-year-old girl campers – Ferris (Tatum O’Neal), the naïve and pretentious daughter of a wealthy couple undergoing a separation as a prelude to divorce, and Angel (Kristy McNichol), the chain-smoking tomboy daughter of a promiscuous single mother – to see which girl would lose her virginity first.
The other girls at Camp Little Wolf all place bets on who will succeed – with a $100 prize purse.
Angel targets Randy (Matt Dillon), a tough kid attending a nearby boy’s camp, while Ferris sets her sights on Gary (Armand Assante), a grown-up counsellor at the girls’ camp.
Both girls ultimately lie – the one who does it says she didn’t, and the one who didn’t says she did . . .
According to Hollywood, Summer Camp was either the place you became a sex maniac or the place you got hacked to death by a resident psychopath!
The summer camp scenes were filmed at Hard Labor Creek State Park on Fairplay Road, Rutledge, approximately 50 miles east of Atlanta, Georgia (USA).
