Trivia

Ken Russell was considered for director but was committed to other projects. Russell had previously directed the filmed adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's Women in Love (1969) and would later direct another Lawrence adaptation, The Rainbow (1989). Ironically, about twelve years after this film was made, Russell ended up directing another version of "Lady Chatterley's Lover", entitled Lady Chatterley (1993), which was also released theatrically in some territories such as Australia.

Goofs

The film is supposed to be set during the early 1920's but when Lady Chatterley is sent away by her husband, a brief scene is shown of a steam locomotive travelling towards the camera. The Standard Class 4-6-0 is number 75043 - this number was not allocated until nationalisation of the four big railway companies and the formation of British Railways in 1947. See more »

Good Couples Movie
30 April 2007 | by garycorbin1See all my reviews

This movie is a good starter for heating up the romance in your life, especially if your female mate is a bit conservative as is my wife. We found the plot acceptable enough to keep our attention, while providing beautiful scenery and cinematography. The acting of the husband was a bit stiff and he occasionally seemed to be reading his lines. The twists along the way kept my wife intrigued and the love scenes did not offend her, as they were done in good taste. The plot is not terribly difficult to predict, but interesting to watch unfold just the same. A good movie to get the romantic fires ignited for a good evening of love making.
