This is a supposedly startling expose where the outrageous actions are shown and is accompanied by a very moralistic narrator.There are some interesting views of London in the sixties.Difficult how they can call this primitive.Rather,like the film dull and rather boring.The only points of interest are Mick Mcmanus and Macdonald Hobley.The strippers are totally devoid of sex appeal.
