Summer of ’42 (IB Tech Print!)

A sentimental, soft-focus coming-of-age tale, Summer of42 captures the magic and nostalgia of youth as three teenage boys fumble with their transition to manhood. But as his friends tussle with girls their own age, Hermie (Gary Grimes) finds first love in the shape of an older woman (22 year old Jennifer O’Neill) whose husband is off fighting in WWII. The box office hit was an Academy Award winner for Best Score (Michel Legrand) and nominated for Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.

“[Summer of42] is written, directed and acted with uncommon good humor” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times

They’ve come a long way since the Summer of ’42! The “terrible trio” of Gary Grimes (Hermie), Jerry Houser (Oscy) and Oliver Conant (Benjy) return for another slice-of-life drama set against the backdrop of WWII. Following their high school graduation, Benjy takes off to join the Marines while Hermie & Oscy head off to college where Hermie falls in love with a beautiful co-ed (Deborah Winters) and the boys will have to deal with the frat president (William Atherton) overseeing their hazing rituals.
