Description by OLDIES.com:
Four coeds from snowbound Penmore U. know that the only place to be during Spring Break is Where the Boys Are. The rites (and wrongs) of the spring migration of thousands of college students to sunny Fort Lauderdale are celebrated in an era-defining film that combines a cast of 1960s up-and-comers with youthful hijinks and a cautionary will-she-or-won't-she storyline of sex and romance. Among the girls seeking the perfect tan and man are Dolores Hart, Yvette Mimieux, Paula Prentiss and Connie Francis (who also performs the hit title tune and the zippy "Turn on the Sunshine"). Among the guys: George Hamilton, Jim Hutton and Frank Gorshin. So many chances for love. So little time!
Four young women sharing a hotel room in Fort Lauderdale during spring break also share a common desire - to meet boys. The original beach party classic.
This classic "spring break" movie follows the exploits of a group of Ivy League college girls on the prowl for fun, sun, and eligible males on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
