Goofs

While the logo of the "Jerusalem Post", Uri is holding, is correct for the time setting (1970), the layout is not correct. The logo was in the center of the head line, not on the left, as in the movie. See more »

Worst film EVER
11 August 2019 | by PzachlenSee all my reviews

For me to say that will amaze people that know me because Ken Russell directed it and wrote it. BAD Ken, Bad Boy Ken. On a visit to L.A Ken showed it to Dan Ireland and Myself. When He asked what we thought..........WE did not soften the blow. Horrible must have been my comment but I do remember Dan just Laughing in disbelief. I hope they both are sharring a good laugh where ever they may be. These were two of my best, Very Best friends of mu life. How I miss them.
