That Tiny Wonder- Gidget

Ohh Moon doggie! I love watching those old movies from the late 50's-60's and it's always fun when they are redo the films in color because the color is so vivid but still with a kick.  One of my all time favorite is the Gidget series- the styling is classic late 50's and they talk with that same sort of jive.  The first Gidget is a coming of age movie for a young girl who falls head over heals with a surfer named Moondoggie.
Can you imagine living in that time :)?
There were a series of movies and tv series but my favorite was the first movie with Sandra Dee.
So dreamy! Oldie but goodie movies always a great source of inspiration.
Wanna go to the beach?

Jenny Taylor said...

It would've been amazing to live during that time. The hairstyles, clothing, and cars were all so pretty! I'm sure if we could, though, we'd think it was just "normal." Ha!

Stephanie said...

I totally wish I could live during the 50s and 60s. I think it would be fabulous!

Ashley said...

Yes, I can imagine living during that time. It seems like everything was so much more simple. But really, who knows. Either way, those pictures are amazing!

I love the Gidget movies. LOVE THEM. I remember being quite young and watching TCM and AMC with my Grandmother and we watched all the Gidget films. ::sigh::

Love it! I always thought I was born in the wrong time period ( should of been born in the 40s or 50s) but oh well thank god for classic movies! :)

*gasp* I loooooove Gidget! She was my hero in 6th grade when I was super awkward. She's just so cute and spunky (plus, those swim suits are just to die for!)

I imagine that time being really happy. My parents were born in the sixties. :)

kimbirdy said...

aw gidget! i used to watch these movies all the time growing up and i loved them. i haven't seen them though in years! definitely time to rewatch. and that's one of the things i love most about living in LA - the style of the 50's and old hollywood is still very much alive all over town. sometimes it's so easy to feel like i'm really in a gidget movie, especially down at venice and santa monica beach {if you ignore all the rap music that is}. :) this is such a fun post!

I love this movie, too! I even named my muppet whatnot Moondoggie! Although I do appreciate modern technology and that civil rights is more advanced than it was in the 60's, I always kind of felt I was born in the wrong era. I definitely prefer the aesthetics of that time period.

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

Gidget is one of my favorites. When I first saw the movie when I was younger I wanted to be her.
