The second part of my Sandra Dee double feature. Everyone makes fun of Gidget, but I can see why this movie was so successful. It's about that most unusual of things -- a teenage girl not interested in growing up. It has such a fascinating blend of innocence and lust that I'm sure every teenage girl in 1959 was aching to see this movie. Oh, Sandra Dee... I wish we could go back in time and heal your troubled soul.
