James Mason met his future wife Clarissa Kaye-Mason when they appeared together in Age of Consent. Clarissa Kaye played the part of Mason's ex-girlfriend in Australia. Their scene together was filmed in bed, and Clarissa, who was recovering from pneumonia, had a temperature of 103 degrees F. After the filming, Mason began corresponding with Kaye, and the two were married in 1971, and remained so until Mason's death in 1984 See more »
In the scene where Helen Mirren is sitting nude in front of a mirror applying makeup, when her grandmother appears and strikes her on the back, they get into a scuffle. As the scene shifts, we can see that the formerly naked Mirren is now wearing a pair of white panties. See more »
As always, Helen Mirren is delightful to see. And James Mason finally gets to be with his Lolita. And oh, I did find Mason's mate more aggravating than an Australian fly. For those who haven't experienced them, Australian flies will just never leave you alone. They're aggressive little insects who are attracted to any body with water. Don't sweat, and yet, how can one help but sweat when Helen Mirren is around. She's a gorgeous woman, always has been and will be. A great actress too. This romp does her justice as a start in film. Don't forget to her her cameo appearance in "Oh Lucky Man", made around this same time.
