Trivia

The film was denied a MPAA seal of approval due to a scene between Oliver Reed and Carol White that implied oral sex. Universal distributed the film through a subsidiary that was not a signatory to the MPAA. Along with a similar scene in Charlie Bubbles (1967), this helped to bring about the end of the Production Code and its replacement with a ratings system. See more »

Flawed nostalgia piece
3 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pretty poor film in terms of plot and structure but interesting as a glimpse of a long gone London and for some lovely footage of Cambridge.

Also worth casting your eye over the cast, Welles looking bloated and unwell, Reed's striking looks somewhat dented by the facial scarring as a result of a 1963 bar fight and Carol White youthful and beautiful before her succumbing in following years to substance addiction. Michael Winner makes one his final Brit films before moving to Hollywood and it's certainly no classic, kind of a 'Garden State' of its day - episodic but contrived and laboured.

However, England looks good and the 60s do look pretty swinging.
