The Beat Girl [VHS] 
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
A hip and swinging piece of beat generation film-making starring Adam Faith, Oliver Reed, Christopher Lee and Shirley Anne Field. Jennifer (Gillian Hills) is really digging the beat style and lives for kicks, but her dad is a square and just doesn't understand. Her stepmother hides a secret that she wants to forget, but Jennifer's determined to find out what it is, and searches through the happening 1960s to do just that - journeying from coffee shop to strip joint. This uncut version of the cult film features John Barry's first soundtrack. Groovy, Daddy-O.

Wow Daddy-O Im Over and Out!
So what exactly made my jaw drop? As one of the characters works in a strip club, with Christopher Lee being the owner, there are obviously scenes set in the strip club where various ladies strut their stuff and remove their bras - all done in the best possible taste of course and quite 'decorous' in some ways. There is however one 'exotic dancer', who actually gets a special mention in the credits of the film, who does things with a strip of cloth that you just would not believe!! I don't know if she'd got hold of a large bath towel or a curtain[!] but what she did with it brought tears to my eyes more than once, not to mention the dropped jaw... I actually thought I'd tuned into a porn film by mistake!
She didn't remove a single item of clothing as far as I can recall but trust me, she didn't need to. I have a feeling that the extras who made up the club audience on that day probably needed cold water chucked on them after that performance!
I do wonder however if that scene will remain in this new DVD/Blu Ray release. It would be a shame if it was cut as that girl certainly earned her wages that day. What a performance!!
Could watch this one many times; and I have.
