Hey, I love it too. Sure, it's essentially romantic drivel. But it's very effective romantic drivel, and the leads are so gorgeous! And John Barry's moving Rachmaninoff-based score helps it enormously.
Besides, anything based on the writings of Richard Matheson is worth seeing. (Look him up: you'll be amazed how many great SF/fantasy projects he's responsible for - several wonderful Twilight Zone episodes, The Incredible Shrinking Man, I Am Legend/The Omega Man, the Roger Corman Poe films, Spielberg's Duel, etc.)

People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

Watched Beneath Hill 60 again. Well worth a second view.
