Students In Soho!
2 March 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

St. Swithins has lost at rugby ( again ) so the students decide to commiserate by going to a Soho strip-club. When they try to gain entry they are told by the doorman that they first have to apply for membership. Luckily who should happen along but Dick and he signs them in. Upton is furious to learn that Dick has used his name as an alias.

The show gets underway. Upton is transfixed at the spectacle of undressing females. One stripper in particular, Rita, is dressed as a traffic warden, disrobing to the Beatles' 'Lovely Rita Meter Maid'.

Suddenly, she faints. The students get her to St. Swithins, where she becomes an instant attraction for the randy doctors. Acting on a suggestion by Upton, Rita decides to become a nurse...

It is never overtly stated but Upton's fascination with Rita seems to be that of the inexperienced male for the more sexually mature woman. Rits has been around the block a few times, and probably knows more about the human body than he does. His suggestion that she become a nurse may be motivated by his desire to keep her within his orbit. But she eventually decides to return to her original profession.

One wonders if the role of 'Rita' was originally intended for Diana Dors. Jan Rossini, who plays her, is very like Dors physically.

Funniest Moment - when the stripper collapses, the club manager asks the audience: "Is there a doctor in the house?" and the entire front row stands up!
