Gidget.

The original film "Gidget" came out in 1959 and starred the quirky and adorable Sandra Dee & the charming James Darren. It's a cute movie about surfing and falling in love and it's sure to brighten your day!

Look at those amazing swimsuits!
Gidget meets Moondoggy!

Gidget and the gang!

Cutest swimsuit ever!
I must, I must, I must increase my bust!



Cute pastel pillows!

Look at that incredible fireplace!

There's that car again!

Isn't her dress just darling?


Now go and watch it for yourself! You won't regret it!

  5. So cute! My favorite thing to do when watching old movies or period shows, like Mad Men, is to point out when the characters are using pyrex. It's kind of an unhealthy obsession and people make fun of me, haha, but I'm sure as vintage lovers you can appreciate this!

  9. I love Gidget! I was so obsessed when I was little, and with Beach Blanket Bingo! Oh, and pretty much any Elvis movie set on a beach. ;)

    Is the Sandra Dee song in Grease based on her?

  16. totally fab! Based on the book... "Gidget, the Little Girl with Big Ideas". The TV series is also a fav. Only ran 1 season but became a cult favorite. Starring a young then unknown girl Sally Field.
