As they leave to go camping, the pickup truck door is clearly labelled "Golden Oak Ranch". Golden Oak Ranch is a Disney filming location. See more »
Just past 1:09, Susan reveals herself to her mother and grandmother. She speaks a frequent dialogue mistake saying, "I miss not having a mother". She should have said, "I regret not having a mother", or something else that doesn't contradict the situation. See more »

[turns to her surprised]
Are you kidding? Ricky Nelson?
Oh, your boyfriend.
[a choked laugh is forced out]
I wish he was! You mean you've never heard of him? Where do ya come from? Outer space?

An early US laserdisc release is missing the car scene mentioned above, but not the pool transition a few minutes later. It is, on the other hand, also missing about 50 seconds at the start of the conversation between Margaret and her father as she tries to pack for the trip to CA (during which he informs her of the plane ticket, questions her choice of dress, and ponders what sort of lady Mitch might have married since the breakup). Like many Disney releases, it is also missing the distribution title card (Buena Vista) and the accompanying drummed introduction to the title song. See more »

This is one of the best Disney movies ever made. It is funny, warm, and it is something everybody can enjoy. To watch this in the twenty first century is a wonderful trip back in time. This movie is very 60's, but that does not make it out of date, the tricks and gags are timeless. I loved this movie when I saw it for the first time many years ago. Therefore, when the new 1998 remake came out, I had to see that too. The new one is also sweet and warm, but the original version is the best. If you see this version first and then all or some of the new afterwards (as I tried, for fun, one was on TV and I have the other on DVD), the new one reveals itself as being superficial and a bit cheasy compared to the original.
