Rejected by the British Board of Film Censors on 11 November 1953, the film waited some 18 months for a London press showing. It was finally screened (whilst still uncertified) at United Artists' Own Theatre in Wardour Street on 13 May 1955. Press reaction was unusually hostile, with Kinematograph Weekly commenting: "Having turned it down, the censor should have sent it to a desert island." And the Monthly Film Bulletin reviewed it in July 1955 only because "it has been shown in some districts by permission of the local authorities." After five years, the distribution passed to New Realm Entertainments who resubmitted it to the BBFC on 30 May 1960 where it passed with an "X" certificate after cuts. Unfortunately, it tended to be shown at struggling independents such as Derby's soon-to-be-demolished Coliseum in January 1961. See more »
About twenty minutes into he movie, you can clearly see the silhouette of a cap-wearing crew member reflected in a mirror behind the bar. See more »
This is one of those movies that is just a little film but somehow, I can't describe it, it works for me! I love it! I love the black and white, the really dated environment, that blonde hoochie mama, the storyline, etc. etc. Just a fun movie to watch and escape with because it's quite campy. I think the ladies will like it and I never saw that blonde actress before but I thought she played her part well the way she just used the men and had them all drooling over her. She had a great figure too.
I'm not a Richard Egan fan but that's okay, she makes it worth watching!
