#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Silent as a painting, the movie shows us day-dreamer Hermie and his friends Oscy and Benjie spending the summer of ’42 on an US island with their parents – rather unaffected by WWII. While Oscy’s main worries are the when and how of getting laid, Hermie honestly falls in love with the older Dorothy, who’s married to an army pilot. When her husband returns to the front, Hermie shyly approaches her.
Plot: Over the summer of 1942 on Nantucket Island, three friends — Hermie, Oscy and Benjie — are more concerned with getting laid than anything else. Hermie falls in love with the married Dorothy, whose husband is an army pilot recently sent to the battlefront of World War II.

A work of art that seems to grow only finer with the passing of time.
Oh. My. God.

What a stunning piece of craftsmanship. A masterpiece. Such innocence. Such humanity. Such wisdom. Such truth. Such is the need to touch the soul of another, and such is the need to seek comfort. Yet tenderness risks so much. Oh to be tender again. Yet who could bear it again?

I remember when I was eight years old and I remember what a splash this movie made. I don’t really recall that I was told or even understood why, and of course I wasn’t taken to see it at that age, at that time, when it was common to keep children ignorant of much they are not today. I’m not sure now that it wasn’t the craving of the parents to let themselves drown in the strangeness that is naivety prolonged too long for the sake of innocence itself rather than some strange desire to protect their children from things the children could already begin to feel within themselves but were not allowed to mention or ask about.

Though the latter is, even today, what is trumpeted about as the reason for shielding children from things they might not be ready for, I’m beginning to wonder if it isn’t really the parents who are just protecting themselves, trying to squeeze out more childhood days from their children for the parents to enjoy before they must finally release their darling children into the fray that tides upon the whims of nature and destiny.

This movie came out in 1971. Tonight they played it late on our local PBS station here in Dallas. I’d never seen it and not thought about renting it and watching it in all these 33 years since then.

One might say it is simply about a couple of 15 year old boys coming of age. But it is more than that. So much more. In fact, without question, it is about the human condition itself.

This is a movie about sex, no doubt about that either. But a movie of a kind that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. Everyone should see this film. Everyone.

If you live alone, see it and feel your own soul’s needs. If you live with someone, see it together and draw him or her close.

Above all, when it is over, you will find yourself remembering and feeling that rarest of all feelings, true tenderness.

The young men should have received acclaim for their performances , and without question so too should have the woman.

For she was woman, every woman.

Summer of 42 was perfect for 1971…
…because – outside of the music – the 70s is a decade most of us in America would just as soon forget. There was inflation, an unpopular war, a disgraced president, gas lines, and shag carpet. The thing is, most of the things I just mentioned hadn’t even happened yet, but by 1971 there was a feeling that our best days were over and we were in a downhill slide as a country. So it would be natural to look backwards at the 30’s – there were lots of A list 70s films set during the Great Depression – and also at the 1940s. Summer of 42 is set at a time when the U.S. didn’t know how WWII was all going to turn out, but in 1971 we knew it was our finest hour, and there was a desire to revisit that time.

Summer of ’42 is a very well-done and entertaining movie. It certainly presents what I would guess is a pretty accurate view of the time and place and what adolescents were like at the time. That for me is its greatest merit. I wouldn’t call it a great movie, but it’s certainly a good one. I always feel a little sorry for any kid whose nickname is Hermie. Yikes.

At first glance “Summer of 42” is merely another coming of age film wherein a teenager falls in love with an “older” woman and lives the summer dream of every adolescent boy, but first glances can be wrong. Gary Grimes delivers a strong performance, but the gem in this movie is Jennifer O’Neil. This stunningly beautiful woman delivers a remarkably haunting performance as the “suddenly” widowed young bride who dream walks into one night of sexual searching with a local teen. Her performance is so sensual yet innocent of any feelings of guilt, her one night is a gentle embrace of life, not sexual release or wantonness, a perfect performance from a actress we got to see far to little of.
