Trivia:
The hit theme song "(Hey There) Georgy Girl" was co-written by Jim Dale, who would later gain fame through several "Carry On" films, 1970's Disney Studio comedies, and Tony winning and nominated Broadway roles. He's also noted as the reader of the U.S. versions of the Harry Potter audio books, as well as the narrator of "Pushing Daisies" (2007).See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: In the "Mistress Contract" scene, James tries to kiss Georgy and knocks her glasses down on her face - far enough so that her mouth is seen through the lenses. From the reverse angle, they are properly on her face, and he has to pull them off to kiss her.See more »

Its Alan Bates film., 21 October 2005
Author: petersj-2 from Australia

It was wonderfully interesting reading the reviews; even the ones I disagree with. All the performances are wonderful and as for the Seekers title song it will always give me goose bumps. I think its this movie that really introduced Alan Bates, at any rate I certainly sat up and noticed. I love his performance in this film. He is a rogue that you cannot help but fall in love with. I love the way the film opens especially the pulse of a London that has sadly long gone. Lyn Redgraves big production number is a real hoot and I agree with the comments about James Mason. What a gifted actor he was. Bates is however the real reason why I love the movie. I confess I had an enormous crush on Bates in this role and that scene when you see his bum as he gets out of the bath well, enough said. Lyn Redgrave, James Mason and the remarkable Rampling are all marvelous.
