For its UK cinema release the film was heavily cut from the original print with edits to dialogue, some sexual references, and all of Mary's topless footage during the bathing scene, and the uncut version was released overseas. The cut cinema print was often shown on BBC1 and the uncut version was shown by Channel 4. The 2010 DVD features both prints of the film. See more »
The film has a special meaning to me, as I was born in Stevenage and still live there today.
The film is all about the sexual exploits of a young lad who is desperate to lose his virginity. Filmed in the 60's during the permissive society days, the fashions and music are a joy to watch.
Judy Geeson plays the love interest, and during one scene strips totally naked, which caused a stir when released! Barry Evans is the lead, called Jamie. Although the plot is nothing fantastic the whole ambiance of the film is great and still fresh today - The movie never seems to date.
Long overdue for a DVD or Video release, can't believe no-ones snapped this title up for release considering its classic status. Always mentioned in movie books and articles.
Watch and enjoy, the fashions, the locations, the music and the youth of the 60's.
