Grace Metalious' once-notorious bestseller Peyton Place is given a lavish -- and necessarily toned-down -- film treatment in this deluxe 20th Century-Fox production. Set during WWII, the film concentrates on several denizens of the outwardly respectable New England community of Peyton Place. Top-billed Lana Turner plays shopkeeper Constance McKenzie, who tries to make up for a past indiscretion -- which resulted in her illegitimate daughter Allison (Diane Varsi) -- by adopting a chaste, prudish attitude towards all things sexual. In spite of herself, Constance can't help but be attracted to handsome new teacher Michael Rossi (Lee Philips). Meanwhile, the restless Allison, who'd like to be as footloose and fancy-free as the town's "fast girl" Betty Anderson (Terry Moore), falls sincerely in love with mixed-up mama's boy Norman Page (Russ Tamblyn).

Russell S (it) wrote: An wonderfully fun action / comedy / spy thriller that despite its lengthy shift of story focus in the second act delivers some good solid entertainment, action set-pieces and laughs. Silliest moment...Arnie trying to get a horse to jump across from one high building to another. The fact that the horse refuses is irrelevant, it's the ridiculous notion of Arnie's character even thinking its a good idea. Sheesh!
