but this is 1967
12 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mundane narrative of 'young innocent' trying to make it in tinsel town without having to sleep her way…..but this is 1967! So, it's great street scenes, great breast scenes, fantastic dialogue and b/w nakedness throughout.

Also we get a really bizarre stage auction where the aforementioned 'lady' passes her clothes to bidders and suffers a rape in lieu of rent.

PLUS - this classic '67 movie ends with a chloroformed lovely being led to a psychedelic orgy of momentous proportions.

FAB!
