Storyline

In his Scottish New Town home, gangling Gregory and his school-friends are starting to find out about girls. He fancies Dorothy, not least because she has got into the football team - and is a better player than him. He finally asks her out, but it is obviously the females in control of matters here, and that very much includes Gregory's younger sister. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

In all Clare Grogan's close-up scenes, she is filmed from one side to hide the scars on her left cheek. For the longer shots of her face (eg the dancing-lying-down scene), her cheek was filled with mortician's wax to hide the scar. Several months before filming, the actress received terrible injuries when a broken glass was thrust into her face as she was fleeing a brawl in a Glasgow bar. See more »

Goofs

In the dancing scene Gregory first appears lying to Susan's left (right as we see it). In the final shots of this scene the positions are reversed and Gregory lies to Susan's right. See more »

Quotes

Andy: Twelve tons of cornflakes pass under here every day. It's a well-known fact.

This is one of the funniest and most warm-hearted films ever! John Gordon Sinclair and Dee Hepburn were absolutely wonderful in this story of teenage love and the sudden twists & turns that occur when you think you've met THE ONE, but then someone else...
