User Reviews

Probably "Out Of date" but at the time, brilliant
9 December 2000 | by johnpinfoldukSee all my reviews

This is a movie that was in it's time full of meaning for teenagers and young men. Lola Albright gave a stunning performance as the"older woman" and this film was as good as the book for a change. If and when it becomes available on video I will certainly buy it and hope that it still gives the same thrill as it did in the 60's
