Trivia

Margaret Drabble's original novel was entitled "The Millstone" - an ironic reference to the baby the unmarried heroine finds she's expecting whilst trying to complete her doctorate. This was the working title for this film, but it was deemed unsuitable and not commercial. In America, the film was released as "Thank You All Very Much" - the sarcastic remark the heroine makes to a group of student doctors after they have studied her case at length without ever actually speaking to her or making any acknowledgment of her as a person.

Pregnant after a night of passionlessness
10 October 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Not sure I find Sandy Dennis very credible, it's a mannered performance, at times impassive and disengaged, at times the opposite - for no discernible reason other than perhaps to maintain her familiar unfathomable screen personna.

Clearly written by a woman, judged by the savage portrayal of the sadistic hospital matron who needlessly blocks the young mother from even glimpsing her recovering infant under the pretence of efficiency and rules, in contrast to the kind (male) consultant who is only too happy to allow this.

Ian McKellan plays a pleasant young man who one would assume seduces the Dennis character only that she seems neither stirred nor shaken by his advances. Nevertheless clearly we gather from her change of costume into something more comfortable and it being morning, that intimacy has taken place. Somehow this significant event has, while changing her state irrevocably, left her manner as neutral and unchanged as if it never happened. And, oddly, the film ended suddenly leaving me feeling exactly the same - as if nothing of interest or significance had happened.
