‘Until I was 15 I was more familiar with Africa than my own body,’ exclaims Beryl Reid’s landlady. Although Reid may have complained that the studio toned the film down, there’s still much to admire in this tale of lust and seduction in the suburbs. ‘The direction becomes as brash as the day-glo colours of Beryl Reid’s see-through mini dress,’ commented Ken Russell. Watching Reid’s landlady and her brother (Andrews) blackmail the deliciously amoral Mr Sloane (McEnery) into bed is a sheer irreverent joy.
