Palm Springs Weekend > A little bit of Nostalgia
I was too little to see this movie when it came out and was shown in the local Drive-In. Figured it was just like all the beach party pics just with a different cast. But now that I live in Palm Springs, I figured I'd catch it and see if I recognized anything in the picture. I didn't but it's still a sweet slice of nostalgia. When it took 4 hours to get to Palm Springs because the cars did go that fast and the roads were 2 lanes. Now it takes 4 hours because "because there's just too many dang people on the road" (big kudos if you know which movie that quote is from). This is a movie where all the teenagers are played by 25 year olds; the teenagers hang out in record shops (anybody know what those are?); and nobody cusses. This is a piece of Americana that's probably catalogued someplace in the Smithsonian. It's a cute picture and very realistic for the time. Today, it would be a drag. But it's a good 100 minutes to return to the sixties and see what life was like. PS> You won't have to take a bath after you watch it ~ everything is so squeaky clean it will rub off on you for the good clean fun that it is/was. 85 outta 100.
Watching this while on vacation in Palm Springs!
I've always loved this movie....I'm on vacation in Palm Springs right now, watching it! The Riviera Hotel, where Robert Conrad and Connie Stevens had lunch, still stands. I'm a great admirer of the Mid-Century Modern furnishings and architecture, and a lot of the homes here are still unchanged from that era. Plus I went to the same high school as Jane Hoover! Also, movie debut for both Dawn Wells and Linda Gray.
one of the better beach movies
i think i liked this movie even more than where the boys are. i enjoyed all the cast and especially loved the dialogue.
Entertainiing Movie - Palm Springs Weekend
- Jim Smith
A winning entertaining move. Jerry Van Dyke and Stephanie Powers excel.
PSW - Full Of Stars
- Bruce Reber
I have seen "Palm Springs Weekend" several times, and it's a fun-filled romp about college students on spring break in the style of "Where The Boys Are" and all those beach flicks of the 60's with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. PSW also features many stars that would soon find fame in film and on TV, i.e Jerry Van Dyke- who made a few apperances on his brother's classic TV sitcom "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and who also appeared in "The Courtship Of Eddie's Father" the same year as PSW, Stephanie Powers-2 TV shows, "The Girl From Uncle" and "Hart To Hart", Robert Conrad-2 TV shows "Wild Wild West" and "A Man Called Sloan" and of course his famous commercials for Eveready batteries, Billy Mumy-the TV Sci-Fi show "Lost In Space" and in the film "Bless The Beasts And The Children" (1971), Andrew Duggan-in an episode of TV's M*A*S*H sometime in the early 80's, Jack Weston-the films "The Thomas Crown Affair", "Wait Until Dark" and "The Cincinnati Kid" and Connie Stevens-a hit record in 1960 with the song "16 Reasons" and later on TV doing ACE hardware commercials.

Troy Donahue and Company Enjoy Palm Springs!
- David Atkins
MGM had a big hit in "Where The Boys Are" and Metro had a stock company of fine players such as Paula Prentiss, Jim Hutton, Yvette Mimieux and George Hamilton and they all had a wonderful time in that movie and so did we. So WB looking at its star roster of Troy Donahue, Connie Stevens, Ty Hardin, Bob Conrad put those players to work in this film set in Palm Springs.This is a breezy fun movie and Donahue, Stevens, Hardin, and Conrad along with Stefanie Powers on loan from Columbia mix it up in a very enjoyable film. Watch it and enjoy.
