It would be interesting to know how this film came to be made. Valentine Palmer's previous work was as a bit-part actor in British TV series such as Dixon of Dock Green and Minder, yet here he is as producer, writer, director and actor. The rest of the cast also seem to have done little of note so the whole production has "Low Budget" writ large. It has a stagy appearance with limited interior and exterior shots.
The strangest aspect of the film is that there is no dialogue. The story is told by a female narrator who is supposed to be Fanny reading from her writings. The film follows the book to a certain degree with the main events and characters all there as Fanny rises through the social ranks but there is the feeling that not much has taken place. Cheryl Dempsey in the title role is a natural delight to watch and lifts the film a notch or two. Whether or not you have seen any of the Fanny Hill films, reading the book to get the true taste is in my opinion a must. This is probably the least worthy of the three Fanny Hill films that I have seen, but that will not stop me watching it again, so 4 stars.
