  • So often he's in a more serious, even villainous role, but in Summer Magic, he's just a really nice man with charm and character, and I like that

      Summer Magic is a terrific family film with the delightful Hayley Mills in the lead role. She’s on the edge of adulthood here, playing a 16-year-old named Nancy Carey. Her mother and brother have rented the yellow house which belongs to some wealthy man who doesn’t actually live there.

      Burl Ives takes care of the place for him and he’s the one who rented it to the Carey family because he felt they really needed it.

      Ives is adorable here. He sings The Ugly Bug Ball song that is so darn cute and adorable. So often he’s in a more serious, even villainous role, but in Summer Magic, he’s just a really nice man with charm and character, and I like that.

      Nancy’s rival and nemesis is her cousin, Julia Carey, played by Deborah Walley. The two go after the same beau, Charles Bryant, played wonderfully by James Stacy.

      Ultimately, the girls end up being best friends, but it’s not without some angst first.

      Towards the end we meet the owner of the yellow house, and it turns out to be a bit of a surprise. Laredo’s Peter Brown played the role. He takes a shine to the

      young Nancy, and she appears to return the ’shine’. He seems a bit old for her, but she’s definitely growing up.

      There’s a lot of humor in Summer Magic, and it’s just a really nice, feel good story. Mills is a lot of fun, and I enjoy watching this movie quite a bit.
