Susan George Red Hot
22 October 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Great 1968 film which I have very much wanted to view over the years and it is very hard to obtain and when I was in England, I was able to view this film and enjoyed it greatly. Michael York, (Peter Strange) played the role as a London policeman who is being arrested in the opening scenes of this movie and then it flashes back to when he first joined the force. Detective Pierce, (Jeremy Kemp) is a detective who likes Peter Strange because he is a cop who goes strictly by the books. It is not too long when Peter meets up with a hot to trot Fred March, (Susan George) who is under the age of 16 years until one more month and she is out to seduce the apple of her eye, Peter. Peter meets her family who live in a big mansion and they immediately take a liking to him and this paves the way for Peter & Fred to make very warm and passionate love with plenty of nudity by Susan George. Susan was just starting out in films and this is one of her early films which I am glad I was able to view in Europe. If you like Susan George, don't miss this one; the other film I want to see her in is: "Neat With Black Stockings", 1968. Enjoy.
