Two 15-year old girls from different sides of the tracks compete to see who will be first to lose their virginity while at camp.
Little Darlings is a 1980 teen film starring Tatum O’Neal, Kristy McNichol, Matt Dillon and Armand Assante, directed by Ronald F. Maxwell.
The screenplay is written by Kimi Peck and Dalene Young. The original music score is composed by Charles Fox. The film is marketed with the tagline “Don’t let the title fool you,” a reference to a scene in which Randy comments on Angel’s name, to which Angel replies, “Don’t let the name fool you.”
The film was notable for having a contemporary pop soundtrack, with music by artists like Blondie, Rickie Lee Jones and Supertramp. The original video release (blue box VHS and laserdisc) kept the soundtrack intact. However, many songs in the film such as Supertramp’s “School”, John Lennon’s “Oh My Love” and The Bellamy Brothers’ “Let Your Love Flow” were removed from the second round of home releases (VHS red box) due to licensing issues and replaced with sound-alikes. As of 2010, the film has not been released on DVD, but was briefly available for digital video rental on iTunes and Amazon with the original soundtrack. It has since been removed from both services.
“…Little Darlings somehow does succeed in treating the awesome and scary subject of sexual initiation with some of the dignity it deserves.” — Roger Ebert
