[Prudence is engrossed in watching a Western on television. Gerald is bored with it and starts to talk to her]
Oh, Gerald, do you mind. I'm trying to follow the plot.
I'm sorry. I didn't realise there *was* one.

One of David Niven's best. Up there with "The Statue" and "The Impossible Years
David Niven has more great movies than you can shake a stick at. Unfortunately some of his best movies are virtually impossible to obtain. I was lucky to get a copy of this film off the cable. Hopefully it will be on DVD soon. "The Impossible Years" is available on video. "The Statue" has not shown up even on cable.
One of the surprising things about "Prudence and the Pill" is the number of actors that you will recognize from that era. You may recognize the niece Geraldine Hardcastle played by Judy Geeson of " To Sir with Love 2 (1996) (TV)" fame. I will not go through the list of actors. However you get the idea.
The plot is quite simple and you can guess the outcome. The real worth is in the acting and the details. Not everything goes quite as expected. Half of the women in the village are taking vitamins that mysteriously look like BC pills. And many are taking BC pills that mysteriously look like aspirin. Do not let this film give you any ideas.
