Susan Slade is a romantic drama film from 1961 directed by Delmer Daves. The movie tells the story of Susan Slade (Connie Stevens), a young girl who is sent to live with her aunt and uncle in a remote coastal town in Oregon after a tragic accident claims the life of her father. As Susan adjusts to her new life, she falls in love with a handsome young man named Wells Corbett (Grant Williams). However, their love has to overcome a number of obstacles, as Wells is already engaged to another woman. Meanwhile, Susan's aunt and uncle (played by Dorothy McGuire and Lloyd Nolan) try to shelter her from the truth about her father's death, which Susan eventually discovers on her own.

Troy Donahue plays a key role in the movie as Orin, Susan's childhood friend who harbors a secret love for her. He tries to vie for her affections against Wells, but ultimately accepts that Susan's heart belongs to someone else.

Along the way, Susan endures a number of challenges and heartbreaks, including a pregnancy scare and a dangerous encounter with a jealous ex-girlfriend of Wells. The plot thickens when Susan's aunt and uncle's own secrets are revealed, throwing her life into even more turmoil.

The film is best known for its lush, beautiful scenery, which captures the rugged beauty of the Oregon coast. The performances of its three young stars - Connie Stevens, Grant Williams, and Troy Donahue - are also noteworthy, and helped to catapult them to fame in the early 1960s.

The movie's themes of love, loss, and family resonate with audiences to this day, making it a timeless classic of the romantic drama genre.

Susan Slade is a 1961 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 56 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3.
