Storyline

A clique of girls in an English school wear a small yellow teddy bear on their uniform to signify that they have lost their virginity. Linda, the girls' leader, fears she may be pregnant from her window cleaner boyfriend, "Kinky", an aspiring pop singer. Desperate, and unable to confide in her parents, she must wrestle with her conscience and decide what course of action to take. Meanwhile, a concerned teacher learns the significance of the yellow teddy bears, and in trying to help the girls in question, puts her own career in jeopardy. Written by Infofreak

Did You Know?

Trivia

Writers Derek Ford and Donald Ford took the idea for their screenplay from a British newspaper story about a group of schoolgirls who advertised the loss of their virginity by wearing the gollywog brooches given away by Robertson's Jam. The change to teddy bears was made when the jam company refused to let their trademark be used. See more »

aka THE YELLOW TEDDY BEARS
12 February 2002 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

THE YELLOW TEDDY BEARS is available on VHS in England. The print is quite good, but it's the censored domestic version. There was also a "Continental" version that added nudity (however, the nudity was provided by adults, not the "schoolgirls"). It is dated now, but it's fun to see films that were once shocking.
