Sex Comedy without the Comedy
16 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Psychiatrist Malcolm Nettel (John Bentley) claims that he could hypnotize a pregnant woman into producing a perfect baby. Struggling stage producer Scott Raymond (John Watling) overhears and wagers Nettel £5,000 he can't do what he says he can do. Intending to con the psychiatrist, Raymond hires actress Mary Kirk (Agnes Laurent) to pose as a pregnant woman and become Nettel's patient. Complications arise, however, when Mary falls in love with Nettel.

This is apparently Britain's first sex comedy. It's not very funny but it does have some sex appeal. Laurent is very attractive, as is Hazel Court, who plays Raymond's fiancée. Laurent also appears to be dubbed. Perhaps she dubbed her own lines but it's clear there is dubbing as her words aren't always perfectly in synch with her lips. See it for the curiosity factor, as well as the lovely ladies.
