At Oxford, Austrian student Anna von Graz (Jacqueline Sassard) is dating fellow student William (Michael York), whom she plans to marry, but she ends up sleeping with two unhappily married Oxford professors instead.
Young, attractive and vivacious, model Diana Scott (Julie Christie) is firmly decided to become rich and famous as well. To succeed, she does not hesitate to take bold steps. After a while, she literally strikes gold: she meets Robert Gold (Sir Dirk Bogarde), a well-known television journalist, who not only introduces her into new social and professional circles, but also abandons his family to live with her. Diana seems to have happily combined success and love. However, in those roaring sixties, others are ready to offer her even more money, fame, and, seemingly, fun than Robert can.Written by

The singing lady in the final scene is clearly wired up and most likely wearing a microphone under her dress. See more »
"Ideal Woman" Interviewer:
Well, I do want our readers to feel that it is really your story; so, I thought I'd perhaps ask you a few questions and if you'd just answer them in your own words.
Yes, I see. Alright, ask away.

The original UK cinema version was cut by the the BBFC to remove shots of a man wearing a woman's corset and to heavily shorten a scene at a party in Paris where guests watch a couple making love on a hotel bed (the scene was edited to end the scene before the male partner appears). Video versions featured the same print though the cuts were later found and restored for the 2007 Optimum DVD release. See more »
I have never seen any mention of the fact that "Darling" is a rather thinly veiled story of Grace Kelly. Several prominent actors have admitted to having hot, steamy affairs with her and she had that reputation in Hollywood until Prince Rainier made an honest,fairytale princess out of her.
I never watched this movie until very recently and was amazed at the parallels. I was a huge Julie Christie fan during the sixties and can't believe it took me all this time to finally watch the one movie she won an Oscar for. Once I realized it really might be about Grace Kelly I was unable to judge the movie on it's own merits. If I'm very wrong about this, I apologize, but I wonder why no one else has ever made the comparison. Out of respect?
