    I discovered this movie in black & white on a late, late show in the very early sixties as a kid. I was especially fond of the line when at the record party, Polly says, “for a dress like that, you’ve got to start laying plans when you’re thirteen,” and I pretty much did so, myself! I always thought of the dress as blue, but duh…it sure makes more sense that it was fuchsia pink. Mine was blue.
    I have wanted to visit the site of the motel set ever since that time. My fascination with fieldstone houses began with it. Fieldstone is a component of the house we built because of it.
    I searched and searched for information on the location and at one point I found a site supposedly hosted by a man who worked on the movie who said that the cabins were never there, that they were a Hollywood set shot in California. I know location shots when I see them and knew he was wrong. Thank you for showing me where and how. The next time we go, I will seek this out to have my own little chunk of the movie. I just love it!

    I love this movie and it was driving me nuts where the cabins would have been located. What a great view they had there and interesting to find out it was fake. So much to like about the movie but man that shredded wheat VP is over the top! 🙂
