Storyline

Orphaned by smallpox, young Lancashire country lady Fanny Hill cheerfully accepts her friend Esther Davies's offer to join the London 'working girls' with Mrs. Brown, a madam who recruits her as charmingly fresh enough to wait, in-living, on gentlemen. The first night, her room- and bed-mate Phoebe starts her sexual 'education', next she revels in being fitted her first-ever fancy frock. Her first 'client', Mr. Crofts, is neither naive nor attractive, rather a paying old rapist who isn't satisfied. Then the party scene, where men are younger and more charming. Handsome merchant's son Charles Standing declares love at first sight and offers to take Fanny away. After a few heavenly days of young love, they intend to demands Sir's blessing for their marriage, but as the ogre actually was her unsatisfied customer, Charles is made to choose between her and his future and leaves for colonial India. Being destitute, Fanny accepts becoming the kept woman of Mr. H., an earl's wealthy brother, ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Although the word "fanny" is nowadays widely used as British slang for the female genitals, and has been since the 19th century, this connotation was unknown at the time when John Cleland wrote his novel. Consequently, lines such as Mrs Coles's "Be gentle with my little Fanny, sir" would not have been seen as double-entendres. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Norbert dies at climax after making love to Fanny, he collapses on top of her, falling toward her left side. But in the next shot while she is calling for help, he is collapsed on her right. See more »

Quotes

Mrs. Coles: The young man I have in mind for you is as sweet and fresh as a little lamb. He has been privately tutored in the country - hardly laid eyes on a girl. But now his father has decided it's time he "completed his education". He wants a young, fresh country girl for his son's first time. Do you think you could play the part?

A movie to watch just for fun
10 February 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It is quite silly but the book -for those who have read it- is also written for the sole purpose of entertaining and certainly it is nothing but an excuse to write about sex, innocent girls turning into prostitutes and brothels... and of course a prince charming to save such a foolish girl from her wretched life. The brothel life is presented as being something of an orgiastic paradise and love emerges i would say rather unrealistically in these circumstances. It's a movie to watch just for fun, it has lots of erotic scenes some rather perverted I would say! I liked the costumes and the atmosphere. I didn't like the way the love story develops. It's too far-fetched.
