Reviews

Part bawdy romp, part kitchen-sink drama, this box-office hit features then-rising star Victor Henry as a twenty-year-old window cleaner whose womanising is curtailed when he finds himself falling in love for the first time. Also starring Susan George and, in his film debut, Jack Shepherd, All Neat in Black Stockings' bold interlacing of sexual adventure, humour and tender love story instantly caught audiences' imaginations, its evocation of London's dingy back-street pubs and dubious characters marking it out as a cult classic. The film is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Ginger shares most things in life with his friend, Dwyer - including girls. Then, he sees the beautiful Jill - 'all neat in black stockings' - in a south London pub. Her obvious innocence moves him, and he feels unable to make his usual approach. He realises that she is not only desirable, but also something very special...

I bought this DVD together with three others from Network that have now been released - Ring of Spies, Nothing But The Best, and This Is My Street. I enjoyed these three in different ways. As a teenager in the late fifties and sixties, I can't remember whether I saw this film or not, but having seen it now I shall not forget it. The reason - it is compellingly bad at nearly every level. Why? For a whole host of reasons. First, as pointed out in other reviews, this film didn't know what it wanted to be. Was it supposed to be a bawdy comedy? If so, The Confessions series did it far better. Or was it meant to be a gritty drama about unwanted pregnancy? If that were the case, it pales into insignificance against the great A Kind Of Loving. Second, I know one shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but Victor Henry (relatively unknown but evidently died tragically) was woefully miscast as the main male character, Ginger. Robin Askwith he wasn't - or even Barry Evans. And certainly not Alan Bates. We were asked to believe that girls would fall at Ginger's feet; the only person who would do that would be his chiropodist. It's not that Henry's acting was no good - it was adequate - but he was just not the right man for the job. And what Jack Shepherd was doing in there, God only knows. Maybe he had a burgeoning flock to feed. Considering that this movie was made in the sixties, arguably one of the most exciting decades in pop music, the soundtrack was abysmal. A mish-mash of bland forgettable wallpaper pseudo-jazz - not a Fender Strat in sight. And again, as was mentioned in other reviews, the only possible reason for any bloke to waste his money on this film is to feast his eyes on the gorgeous Susan George.Read more ›

Long unseen (by me anyway), this is a worthwhile release from Studio Canal/Network. A good picture, Ratio 1.75.1 (tho I fancy 16.9 would be more helpful-It filled my screen beautifully), and some not very interesting "extras", but a good price. Personally I feel the makers didn't quite know what sort of film t5hey were making. It starts off like "Adventures of a Window Cleaner" and my heart sank, but then it became a wannabe "Up The Junction/Poor Cow", and for me didn't really make it there. However, as the film goes on and gets more and more grim and realistic I found myself getting surprisingly involved. At first I thought Victor Henry was miscast, but by the end he had won me over completely. Jack Shepherd as his best friend looks really yukky, but shows how good he could and would be. Good support comes from Harry Towb (possibly his best role ever) and Anna Cropper as Ginger's (henry) pregnant sister, and Terence De Marney as an eccentric...(not too sure what his character was!). So far I have failed to mention my (guilty?) pleasure-Yes the 18 year old Susan George. Surely every boy's crush, and young men, and middle aged men etc etc. Here she absolutely steals the film, sexy, vulnerable, sad, all the emotions her character endures. The plot concerns "Ginger" aqnd his pursuit of and winning of Susan, and includes comedy, violence and drama. The whole doesn't quite come off, but I always ask myself-Did I enjoy it, and-YES I did. Fans of Ms George must get this. Also fans of good honest drama and late 60's filmaking will surely find a lot to enjoy. Recomended.

An unusual film this.It starts off like a bawdy comedy but ends up as a drama. It concerns two friends who share their girlfriends. The way they refer to the girls is shameful, they call them IT, as in, "you can take it out tonight." It's amazing why any girl would go out with the arrogant little toerag in this film. He asks one girl out and then ignores her when he sees another (Susan George) that he likes. His flat is filthy and his sister and brother in law are filthy and nuts too.
I don't know if it's me, but some people seem to act very strangely. There doesn't seem to be a reality to the goings on here. His mother in law dislikes him until he has it off with her. Then, the next morning she is toadying to his demands over what he wants and how he likes his breakfast cooked. This is probably one of the comic moments, but the film doesn't seem to make up its mind whether to be comic or serious. So it's all a little confusing.

I got this dvd because I'd never seen it and I was always intrigued by the poster, two spread legs in the letter A for all. I found it a little unusual but not dislikeable. The young Susan George is, of course gorgeous, as always.

Network has given us a good transfer. There are two versions of the movie on the disc, the cropped for widescreen tvs is the main one and the as filmed, (which I consider the correct one,) 1.37:1 version is supplied as a special feature. There is also a mute deleted scene and again, strangely it is included in the 1.37:1 version of the film. If you select this version to watch as I did you will experience a loss of sound from 1hr, 9mins, 21 secs to 1hr, 10mins,28secs. This deleted scene is the same one listed seperately in the menu list. It is not incloded in the widescreen version of the movie.
