Great title, but ultimately a bit of a disappointment...
21 July 2016 | by canndymanSee all my reviews

This film is certainly a bit of an oddity - & very much of its time (1969). The post-promiscuous society plot, concerning the amorous adventures of window cleaner Ginger, seems at first like a forerunner to the later 'Confessions' films - but somehow never really cuts it or even aspires to even that level of low-brow adventurism. The first half is muddled, silly & incredibly sexist, & leaves the viewer not particularly liking Ginger & his uncaring attitude towards women; the second half becomes more like a kitchen-sink drama, but lacks the depth & believability of something like 'Alfie'.

Susan George (fresh from her appearance as Joyce in 'Up the Junction') is wonderful as eye candy, & saves the film, but she did seem to have a habit at this time of sometimes appearing in movies that were often fairly thin & unsatisfying, & perhaps beneath her talents.

The plot is populated with eccentric characters & situations, & certainly has a loose, almost made-up-as-it-goes-along swinging-sixties feel. In its favour, there are plenty of colourful locations around London, & it gives a good snapshot of how the capital looked at the time, & the fashions - even if the plot is rather far-fetched. Scenes in humdrum cafes & bars are well staged & add some grittiness.

All in all though, not a classic sadly (although I hear it was fairly-well received by contemporary audiences at the time). Great for fans of Susan George & sixties London, but don't expect a full-on sex comedy (it has a 12 certificate) or anything even much in the way of black stockings! The film's biggest downfall for me is the chauvinistic attitudes on display, which made me feel rather uncomfortable - but thankfully nowadays are an unfortunate anachronism.
