This is an extremely important film for me developmentally. I happened to catch it on TV circa 1982, when I was 12 years old and just starting to understand my sexuality. The movie has a scene with Jeanne Moreau on a throne (as Great Catherine) and Peter O'Toole tied up at her feet. And, she goes on to tickle him in the ribs with her bare foot - sort of a playful, flirtatious, light torture... Then, as a condition for getting him untied, she makes him kiss her bare foot, along with a quote approximating, "show me how you treat a queen".
To this day, this remains an extremely erotic memory for me. It was a key moment in my discovery of my sexually submissive nature and strong foot fetish.
