This film was mentioned by a 1954 Memorandum of the New York State Education Department, written with regard to New York State Law 1954, Chapter 620, which added definitions of "immoral" and "incite to crime" for motion picture censorship purposes. The Memorandum cited this film as an example of a film about which the ED's Motion Picture Division had been "beset with inquiries and applications for reconsideration of motion pictures which heretofore have been regarded as contrary to the present provisions of the statute." It stated that One Summer of Happiness "contains a scene where a boy, nineteen, and a girl, seventeen, spending a vacation together, swim and embrace in the nude."
