Surprisingly good Pete Walker sexploitation drama
8 March 2018 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

Two bored teenagers leave their small town and travel to London to try and live the dream. Soon, it becomes apparent that the boy's claims of a good job waiting for him are false and, so, before long they are destitute. To make money, the girl gets involved in the sex industry, starting with modelling and ending in porn films via prostitution, all of this actively encouraged by her boyfriend. Needless to say, life in the big city does not turn out to be very glamorous.

This is an early film from British director Pete Walker, who is now known mainly on account of his horror movies, such as the impressive Frightmare (1974). In the earlier part of his career he seemed to be more focused on sexploitation, of which this is a pretty obvious example. It is a pretty good film of this type though, especially when you consider how terrible British entries in this category usually are. Funnily enough, a lot of the later atrocious 70's examples seemed to star Robin Askwith, who appears here in the role of the rather unsympathetic boyfriend. Janet Lynn stars opposite him as the girl who the story essentially revolves around and I thought she was pretty good. The film itself is basically a cautionary tale, which is fairly downbeat a lot of the time. The heavier elements actually make it a better film though, as it is sexploitation with at least some substance. A story which looks at the grim reality of aspects of the sexual revolution. Like in all the other Walker films I have seen it has unpleasant members of the older generation interfering aggressively with the young. On the whole, it can certainly be considered another very worthwhile film from Walker.
