Poignant and pointed, as well as funny, this love story by director Leslie Norman has a simple message: act your age. Since they were older teens, two buddies Barney (John Mills) and Roo (Ernest Borgnine) have gone to a summer rendezvous with the same two women, for fun in the sun in Sydney. They work on sugar-cane farms and after the harvest spend the summer with their women. In this 17th such summer, they arrive only to discover that Barney's girlfriend has married and Pearl (Angela Lansbury), a rather straight-laced widow, has taken her place. Roo's girlfriend Olive (Anne Baxter) does not get her annual gift of a special doll because Roo is broke -- he has had a bad year. As these adults mix and mingle, various circumstances arise that force them to rethink their behavior.

  1. decent viewing of a very rare film 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 29th 2016

    Great, little known Australian movie with two British stars, John Mills and Angela Lansbury and two American actors Ernie Borgnine and Anne Baxter, all incidentaly, playing Australians alongside real Australian actors. Borgnine and Baxter are a couple who are reunited each summer when the sugar cane season is over. During their seventeenth summer aware of age catching them up they desperately try to make sense of their relationship. Hence the UK title Summer of the seventeenth Doll, as Borgnine always brings Baxter a doll each summer. Worth catching with decent performances all round.
