Product Description

Joe Sickles (Robin Askwith) and Carol Thatcher (Janet Lynn) decide to leave their small village and head down to London for work. Joe fails to find any work but Janet enrols as a fashion model. As the naïve couple begin to enjoy the nightlife of London they are drawn ever deeper into a world of drink, pornography, drugs and prostitution. Their decline into the seedy side of London s nightlife takes them into swinging parties, immoral earnings and filmmaking; threatening to push them over the edge. Will the couple continue on the path of no return... or can they find a way out of their nightmare?


Fantastic and well made British sexploitation film, Pete Walker does it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars A slice of 70's life 25 May 2009
By chuckles VINE VOICE
I gave this a 4 star for nostalgia, however maybe 3.5 stars are fairer. This is a typical 70's movie where 2 country dwellers decide to make their way to swinging London to make their fortunes. Due to their naivety, lack of money and easy morals, this leads them into a wild and crazy lifestyle that could never exist now. This apparently is based on a true story, and was considered very shocking for its time, however seems almost quite tame now. Some of the acting is quite wooden, and not sure that Askwith can play a straight role as it always seems he wants to make a cheap joke. The gorgeous Janet Lynn is also a bit out of her depth, but she gets away with it due to her combination of innocence combined with 70's morals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Askwith! 21 Oct 2008
Cool it Carol! is now somewhat a curiosity and a fascinating glimpse into 1970s Britain. At the time of release it got plenty of bad reviews and yet it is well made and is full of well known faces. I suppose it was pushing the sexual boundaries and compared with today there really isn't any nudity that would offend. Yes you do see Janet Lynn's breasts and Robin Askwith's shapely bottom and legs but that's about it. The objections were I'm sure to do with the depiction of the apparently permissive lifestyles in London. The establishment probably did not want to promote such a picture of the capital but it was there and director Pete Walker shows it . The film made a fortune abroad with American's lapping it up to the tune of $2 million. The ever youthful Jess Conrad who is interviewed on screen remembers the clubs, the scene and clearly with affection. His interview is a bonus in every way as is the original trailer. Look out for Stubby Kaye in the club scenes, he is certainly having a good time. And Pete Murray is there playing himself, his fee was we are told six silk ties! The film quality is good and clear as is the sound and the liner notes by Simon Sheridan author of "Keeping the British End Up-Four Decades of Saucy Cinema" put the whole thing into context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy 30 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Based on a true story this movie does have some funny moments as our two young lovers discover the underside of London's porn industry back in the late sixties / early seventies, but I have to admit I found the whole thing to be quite touching and a little sad.
The main characters are two kids from the sticks who decide to get together and move to the big city to create some kind of life for themselves but finding it hard to make ends meet and with their money running out decide to utilise their main assets, their open minds and youthful good looks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Carol Thatcher - but not the Iron Lady's daughter 20 April 2014
By Allan
I'm assuming that this film was made as a comedy drama but the finished product would have been much better if they'd hired someone other than the irritating Robin Askwith and just played it straight. Askwith's one talent is the ability to pull silly faces and look gormless, which I admit he is amazingly good at. The one good reason for viewing this film is to watch the lovely Janet Lynn, whose movie career surprisingly sank without trace.
