The sun drenched beach is the setting for Gidget, a comedy about a teen aged girl and her youthful companions. Gidget (Sandra Dee) feels the first awakenings of being attracted to boys as she and her friends frolic all summer. She falls for Moondoggy (James Darren) who surfs all day and dances all night. They spend a romantic summer before the fall brings on the inevitable responsibilities of impending adulthood.
