Trivia

Dirk Bogarde was invariably very unwilling to do promotional work for his films, so it was a surprise when, at the time this film opened in New York, he did a series of interviews for American radio and on local TV talk shows to advertise it. His reason was, however, unconnected with any enthusiasm for the movie - he had been holidaying in the US and had run out of money, and so agreed to do this work in return for Paramount paying his expenses to get home.

Absolutely marvelous
10 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was in the "game" that was played in the movie. I was with a group of men in a foreign land though, not in England with a group of women. Lord knows I would have preferred the latter. I have not seen this movie since the 70's and would love to acquire a copy of it. What does it take to get a DVD made?
