At the country pub: the litter bin in which the gun is hidden has a lot of foliage behind it but when Bella picks up the gun and holds it the foliage has disappeared. See more »
Well at least he tried.
Better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all, I suppose.
Merely to achieve erection isn't that important, as it happens.

A reverse gender "Death Wish" has doe-eyed Lia Williams as Bella, who encounters several oversexed, repulsive men, who are all interested in one thing (and it ain't football!). Hard to believe that director Winner actually made a handful of decent films in the early seventies, because this film is offensively stupid and violent with giant lapses in logic and character motivation. Every male character (=caricature) is presented as a horny git, who eventually suffers Bella's revenge, but so what? After the Death Wish sequels, Bullseye, Parting Shots and now this, Winner should definitely NOT quit his day job as a restaurant critic.
