The Summer Knows (Theme from Summer of '42) Lyrics
Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Hermie finds himself succeeding with Aggie, who allows him to grope what he thinks is her breast; Oscy later points out Hermie was fondling her arm. The next morning, Hermie helps the bride move boxes into her attic and she thanks him by giving him a kiss on the forehead.
Theme from Summer of '42 (The Summer Knows)
Later, in preparation for a marshmallow roast on the beach with Aggie and Miriam, Hermie goes to the local drugstore. In a painfully humorous sequence, he builds up the nerve to ask the druggist Lou Frizzell for condoms. That night, Hermie roasts marshmallows with Aggie while Oscy succeeds in having sex with Miriam between the dunes.
He is so successful he sneaks over to Hermie and Aggie to ask for more condoms. Confused as to what's happening, Aggie follows Oscy back, where she sees him having sex with Miriam and runs home, upset. The next day, Hermie comes across the bride sitting outside her house, writing to her husband. Hermie offers to keep her company that night and she says she looks forward to seeing him, revealing her name is Dorothy.
An elated Hermie goes home and puts on a suit, dress shirt and heads back to Dorothy's house, running into Oscy on the way; Oscy relates that Miriam's appendix burst and she's been rushed to the mainland. Hermie, convinced he is at the brink of adulthood because of his relationship with Dorothy, brushes Oscy off. He heads to her house, which is eerily quiet. Going in, he discovers a bottle of whiskey, several cigarette butts, and a telegram from the government.
Dorothy's husband is dead, his plane shot down over France. Dorothy comes out of her bedroom, crying, and Hermie tells her "I'm sorry.
The Summer Knows (Theme from Summer of '42)
She turns on the record player and invites Hermie to dance with her. They kiss and embrace, tears on both their faces. Without speaking, and to the sound only of the waves, they move to the bedroom, where she draws him into bed and gently makes love with him. Afterward, withdrawing again into her world of hurt, Dorothy retires to the porch, leaving Hermie alone in her bedroom.
He approaches her on the porch, where she can only quietly say "Good night, Hermie. At dawn Hermie meets Oscy and the two share a moment of reconciliation, with Oscy informing Hermie that Miriam will recover.
Oscy, in an uncharacteristic act of sensitivity, lets Hermie be by himself, departing with the words, "Sometimes life is one big pain in the ass. Trying to sort out what has happened, Hermie goes back to Dorothy's house. Dorothy has fled the island in the night and an envelope is tacked to the front door with Hermie's name on it. Inside is a note from Dorothy, saying she hopes he understands she must go back home as there is much to do. She assures Hermie she will never forget him, and he will find his way of remembering what happened that night.
Her note closes with the hope that Hermie may be spared the senseless tragedies of life. In the final scene, Hermie, suddenly approaching manhood, is seen looking at Dorothy's old house and the ocean from a distance before he turns to join his friends. To bittersweet music, the adult Raucher sadly recounts that he has never seen Dorothy again or learned what became of her.
The Summer Knows (From "Summer Of '42")
Herman Raucher wrote the film script in the s during his tenure as a television writer, but "couldn't give it away. Raucher showed Mulligan the script, and Mulligan took it to Warner Bros. When casting for the role of Dorothy, Warner Bros. O'Neill auditioned for the role, albeit hesitantly, not wanting to perform any nude scenes. O'Neill got the role and Mulligan agreed to find a way to make the film work without blatant nudity. Nantucket Island was too far modernized in to be convincingly transformed to resemble an early s resort, so production was taken to Mendocino, California , on the West Coast of the US.
Production ran smoothly, finishing on schedule. After production, Warner Bros.

The film and subsequent novel were memoirs written by Herman Raucher; they detailed the events in his life over the course of the summer he spent on Nantucket Island in when he was fourteen years old. During the course of writing the screenplay, Raucher came to the realization that despite growing up with Oscy and having bonded with him through their formative years, the two had never really had any meaningful conversations or gotten to know one another on a more personal level. Instead, Raucher decided to focus on the first major adult experience of his life, that of falling in love for the first time.
The woman named Dorothy, like her screen counterpart was a fellow vacationer on the island whom the year old Raucher had befriended one day when he helped her carry groceries home; he became a friend of her and her husband and helped her with chores after her husband was called to fight in World War II. On the night memorialized in the film, Raucher randomly came to visit her, unaware his arrival was just minutes after she received notification of her husband's death.
She was confused and upset, had been drinking heavily, and repeatedly called Raucher by her husband's name. Although both ultimately disrobed, contrary to popular opinion, sexual intercourse did not occur. Raucher admitted this in a interview saying it was mostly holding, but in the movie "We let you think what you want. He never saw her again; his last "encounter" with her, recounted on an episode of The Mike Douglas Show , came after the film's release in , when she was one of over a dozen women who wrote letters to Raucher claiming to be "his" Dorothy.
She told Raucher that she was glad he turned out all right, and that they had best not re-visit the past. In a Scripps Treasure Coast Publishing interview, Raucher lamented never hearing from her again and expressed his hope that she was still alive. Consequently, the book also mentions Seltzer's death, which is absent from the film adaptation. As well as being a commercial success, Summer of '42 also received rave critical reviews.
In , the film was followed by Class of '44 , a slice-of-life film made up of vignettes about Herman Raucher and Oscar Seltzer's experiences in college. Class of '44 involves the boys facing army service in the last year of World War II. The only crew member from Summer of '42 to return to the project was Raucher himself, who wrote the script; a new director and composer were brought in to replace Mulligan and Legrand.
Of the principal four cast members of Summer of '42 , only Jerry Houser and Gary Grimes returned for prominent roles, with Oliver Conant making two brief appearances totaling less than two minutes of screen time. Jennifer O'Neill did not appear in the film at all, nor was the character of Dorothy mentioned. The film is noted for featuring a young, slim John Candy briefly appearing in his first film role.
The film met with poor critical reviews; the only three reviews available at Rotten Tomatoes are resoundingly negative,   with Channel 4 calling it "a big disappointment,"  and The New York Times stating "The only things worth attention in 'Class of '44 are the period details," and "'Class of '44' seems less like a movie than 95 minutes of animated wallpaper.
