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 »
Oh boy does this film bring back memories of my 1960's teenage years. In 1967 I was 17 going on 18 the same age as the character Jamie in this film. I remember going to the cinema to watch this movie after seeing it advertised in a newspaper. Jamie has several encounters with young ladies and gets so called expert backing and advice from his pal Spike. Of all the young women he is involved with Jamie is infatuated with Mary played by Judy Geeson, but their romance is short lived as she is far too much of a free spirit for young Jamie. When I watch this film I am transported back in time bringing back memories of young ladies I have known. Barry Evans was ideal in the part of Jamie McGregor and it was a pity that his career never really took off in films and so sad how his life ended in strange circumstances. I am sure you will enjoy this warm happy film right from the moment Traffic belt out the theme song through the opening titles and until the closing titles when Jamie rides off into the sunset as a conductor on a bus.
