Pretty Dire
5 May 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I see the leading lady nearly every day.She was the model for "The Naked Lady" statue which stands near the junction of the A406 and A1 in Henleys Corner North London.I would say that she is a lot more mobile as the statue than she was as the leading lady of this almighty load of rubbish made at Brighton Studios.She simply cant act and so the film is simply amateur theatricals.the story,when it actually gets going is strictly second rate.However we do get to see a young petter Butterworth drunkly get into bed with Fritz the dog,being kissed and thinking he is with Jane.That is probably about the only memorable moment in this truly awful film.
