Storyline

Young, attractive and vivacious, model Diana Scott 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, a well-known TV 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...

"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.
Diana Scott: Yes, I see. Alright, ask away.

Perfectly personifies 1960's London
30 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

This movie could go in a time capsule, and you would know everything necessary about what it was like to live in London in the 1960's...maybe you'd want to add something about The Beatles also. This is also one of the rare times when someone actually won an Oscar and deserved it! No one but the great Julie Christie could have played this part; she is perfection. The black & white cinematography only adds to the mood of the piece. And what a title! It says it all.
