Splendor in the Grass (1961): review- 5.5/10

Small town Kansas: two high school students wish to engage in sexual congress but their parents are too stuffy to let this happen.

As a result, the female goes nuts, while the boy, who's father is a cultureless oaf, has to go to Yale and study law, instead of the agrucultural college, as he would really like.

This is a self important, humourless piece that has dated badly. However, it is is well paced and carefully made and is still watchable.
