Sammy 'Lee' Leeman:
[Addressing the audience]
Well, thank you for that thunderous ovation. Good afternoon, gentlemen, and welcome to the Peepshow Club. And you're welcome to it. We've got a wonderful show here for you today so I want you to forget about the wife and make yourselves comfortable; not too comfortable there, Sir, thank you. We were raided last week. Sit back, relax, enjoy yourselves. We've got some really beautiful girls here, some really beautiful girls

Additional production information about this film.
I was engaged by the U.S. Distributor, Seven Arts Films, to produce a trailer for the film. Notwithstanding that both the film and my trailer were quite good, it did not enjoy good box office. Seven arts changed the title to "The Small VIOLENT World of Sammy Lee", had me do a new, more action oriented trailer, and they rereleased it under that title. It did somewhat better in that incarnation, but was still not the blockbuster they had hoped it would be.
As an additional aside, in addition to the BBC t.v. play, there was a U.S. version of the television show, as well. If memory serves, it starred Mickey Rooney.
