LET'S HAVE A WHIPROUND!
17 June 2003 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

a passable, tongue in cheek remake of a much better original which starred margaret lockwood as the mysterious lady who masquerades as a highwaywomen in 17th century england. the main interest here apart from the trite dialogue (alan bates: A WOMAN! faye dunaway: NEARLY A CORPSE!) is an infamous whipping scene between faye and then unknown marina sirtis (better known as commander troy from 'star trek-next generation') which caused a run in with director micheal winner and the late british board of film censor james ferman who ordered it to be trimmed. his argument was that a woman's breast shown to be whipped was unacceptable. after much lobbying from micheal winner; the sequence was shown uncut.
