Tawdry and heartless cash-in on the suicide of Mary Millington.
11 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The life and early death of Mary Millington remains one of the saddest episodes of British cinema history. A woman whose sexual honesty and openness was abused by business men who viewed her as little more than a cash cow.

This "tribute" has to be watched with open mouth as producer Sullivan uses it to make a quick killing and preach his own self-serving propaganda over someone else's grave. Sex, death and politics don't really go side-by-side. We even have Marie Harper pretending to be Millington in her coffin!

Strangely the MM story is an interesting one with rumours (let us be respectful of the dead) of cocaine running, high ranking prostitution, tax avoidance and hardcore pornography peddling (very illegal in the UK at the time.) There was even a C4 documentary 20 years after her death which uses some of the footage.

Those wanting a sex film will be disappointed. Those that want to know more about the private life of MM will be disappointed (they don't even tell us she was married). Those that enjoy pornographers whining about their experiences and how they are shinning knights who operate at the cutting edge of media freedom will enjoy it though...
