Gidget (1959)

Tivo deleted before I could watch - and I was totally in the mood for it, too. :(

I discovered this last year and now I may have to rent it since it's the PERFECT summer movie.

Sandra Dee was fifteen playing eighteen when she made it and it is awesome. Has an awesome ending, awesome, goofy costumes. A SONG of all things, and a quote from grandma as a key turning point in the plot.

It is not a musical, but there is a song in the middle for some strange reason - but it feels right, somehow. Perfectly cheesy.

Also, great nicknames like Gidget and Moondoggie!

What's not to love?
MUST watch again.
Four stars, for sure!
