Congratulations to Network for releasing this (I love them!!)
After several dreadful prints from unknown companies that were like watching the movie through the bottom of a dirty beer glass, thanks to the fabulous 'Network' (who always get it right) we finally have an excellent copy of this 60s classic!
This was probably the first time Susan George came to my attention - the 'original' and only 'Twinky'! I think I was about thirteen or fourteen when I first saw this, and it immediately had an impact on me since I was at that age when I was always fantasising about having a relationship with an older guy. Okay, so Bronson is not so good-looking, but it was the 'age' thing - falling in love (or perhaps simply having a crush on such an older man) with an older guy that was so attractive. But it's a time in your life that needs to 'freeze' , 'coz it just don't work for long...
This has the great and catchy number for its theme song which was sung by Jim Dale that I always remember and sticks in my head long after the movie is over. No re-make would ever be the same or so innocent as this, or Twinky be so marvellously played by anybody but George - even though an unusual one for Bronson - he plays it great too.
Some humorous moments in this, including one of many classic lines: (The Sergeant to Twinky) 'Is your daddy in?' (Twinky replies) 'He's not my daddy, he's my boyfriend'!
This movie is full of nostalgia for me.
Three cheers for Networkl! : - )
