Former actor Donovan Winter chose the comedy genre for his directing debut in 1960, but his follow-up feature, a nudist movie entitled World Without Shame was more a sign of things to come. Winter really came into his own in the Seventies with a string of British exploitation movies for his own Donwin company of which The Deadly Females (1976) is his warped masterpiece. Some Like it Sexy, the first Donwin production was according to its creator his version of Alfie with more sex. Likewise Some Like it Sexy aka Come Back Peter tells of a womanizing Cockney (the Peter of the original title) and his mostly successful attempts to woo a succession of laughably stereotyped women, a model, a hippie chick, a black girl, a toff housewife, twins, a Swedish au pair etc. Unfortunately apart from some brief soul searching towards the end it's hardly in the same league as Alfie, today its seems more of a primitive blueprint for the likes of Confessions of a Window Cleaner, Adventures of a Taxi Driver et al. Still while it offers few plot revelations Some like it Sexy is curiously watchable due to its rough hand held camera approach to filmmaking, endless attempts to wed nearly all the action with the title song (plus some surprising top 40 material) and many nostalgic London locales. There's even some low rent surrealism- most noteworthy is the way Peter's conquests are inter cut with scenes of meat being cut up, for some dubious un-pc symbolism. Fans of Hammer films will no doubt be aghast to find twin sisters Mary and Madeleine Collinson the stars of Twins of Evil in some fairly scandalous scenes. There's much kitsch value as well with the unavoidable mindbending LSD sequence and Winter's dedicated follower of fashion, rivaling Austin Powers in his choice of Carnaby Street fashions. The film wasn't released until two years after it was made, apparently in its original version it was not explicit enough and Winter had to shoot some crude `sexy' inserts using very obvious body doubles to ensure a sale. In 1971 the film finally saw a release double billed with another sexploitation movie called All about Women (196?). As a swinging Sixties exploitation piece Some Like it Sexy isn't half bad. Still historically its less `how it all was' and more like wishful thinking (quite literally in the final black and white sequence) on the part of slimy bachelors.
