Trivia

According to some biographies of Audrey Hepburn, her role in this film was originally much larger (one book indicated that her character was in fact the "wild oat" of the title), but jittery censors forced most of her part to be cut. See more »

A Clever Cute Little Farce
25 September 2000 | by (Alhambra, CA) – See all my reviews

One wild oat is a cute little farce. British wit and clever twists make this an enjoyable film. It also makes an interesting statement regarding the times. The plot depends on the sexual and marriage taboos of fifty years ago; yet, one of the main characters appears in drag. Audrey Hepburn fans will enjoy seeing her briefly in one of her first film appearance. Another bit of trivia, one of the film's stars, Andrew Crawford, will later appear with Audrey in "My Fair Lady". This film is not readily shown or available; if you have a chance to view it, take it.
