From the director of 'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?' (Robert Aldrich) comes this gritty adaptation of Frank Marcus' play.
June Buckridge (Beryl Reid) is an aging actress whose life is falling apart. The part she plays in a TV soap series is about to be killed off, and the only job offer she has received is the voice of Clarabell Cow. Worse still, she suspects her young lover (Susannah York) of having an affair. Made in 1969, this is one of the first films to deal with the previously taboo subject of lesbianism and with Aldrich's masterful handling of the subject, it makes for a powerful and moving drama.
A moving drama BUT the most hilarious film I have seen in a long time.
