Synopsis

Two classic musicals starring Hayley Mills. In 'Summer Magic' (1963), when a close-knit Boston family loses their fortune, they find a wealth of family secrets, young love, and charming summer nights in Beulah, Maine. A good-natured postmaster, pretentious cousin Julia (Deborah Walley), and the mysterious absentee landlord, Mr. Hamilton (Peter Brown), populate their new life in a charming old yellow house. In ' The Moon-Spinners' (1964), Nikky Ferris (Mills) is spending time in Crete at a small inn called The Moon-Spinners with her Aunt Frances (Joan Greenwood). One day Nikky discovers a handsome young man, Mark Camford (Peter McEnery), wounded in an empty church nearby. It turns out that Mark was once a London bank messenger, but he lost his job after a major jewel robbery. Tagged as a suspect, Mark has made his way to the inn to gather evidence against the inn's owner, Stratos (Eli Wallach), who Mark thinks is the real jewel thief. Nikky and Mark fall in love and decide to capture Stratos together.
