Analytically, this movie and its source D.H. Lawrence novel addresses the stuffy and polarized British class structure of the early 1920s. See more »
The film is supposed to be set during the early 1920's but when Lady Chatterley is sent away by her husband, a brief scene is shown of a steam locomotive travelling towards the camera. The Standard Class 4-6-0 is number 75043 - this number was not allocated until nationalisation of the four big railway companies and the formation of British Railways in 1947. See more »
I came across this movie on DVD recently at a boot sale and bought it for $1.00.
I first saw it on theatrical release but watched it again the other night.
The story is well known and I won't comment on the movie other than to say it was clearly an attempt at legitimate, low key porn.
But it did take me back to the original cinema viewing, which I saw with my new wife, who I think was particularly embarrassed. Sitting in front of us were an English couple and he was voluble right through the movie, as if it was a comedy.
As we were leaving the theatre he turned to me and said 'I don't know about you but I am going to plant my back lawn out in bluebells'. Broke me up, and I can't think of D.H. Lawrence, without thinking of bluebells.
I am surprised that no one has had a serious go at remaking LCL. It might be that DHL is to difficult for todays literally changed audiences.
