Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

Synopsis: A boatload of teenage kids head to an island off the coast of Florida that is rumored to have the fountain of youth.

Reaction: Very low budget and ridiculous. There are also rather inexplicable lapses into musical numbers.

Personal Rating: 2/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Filmed in June and July 1965, Jayne Mansfield was then five-six months pregnant with the last of her five children, son Antonio Raphael Ottaviano (AKA: [?] Tony Cimber).
  • Perhaps because the production had run out of money, a final portion of this movie was never actually shot; instead, the camera simply pans over script pages describing what occurred in the missing scenes.
