1. Where the Boys Are (1960, dir. Henry Levin)Shag, there's no doubt you'll love Where the Boys Are. Like the Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello Beach movies and the aforementioned Shag, Where the Boys Are finds young adults looking for love and fun in the sun. While full of swinging fun, WtBA also explores darker territory as well, and because of that is the superior film about young adults letting loose in beachside towns. Starring Dolores Hart, Yvette Mimieux, Barbara Nichols, and Paula Prentiss with appearances by George Hamilton, Jim Hutton, and Frank Gorshin, this is an early version of the sex comedy that could easily be seen as the one that started it all.
