Very often these lesser known period pieces from the 50s and 60s seem intriguing, then you watch them and they're dull and stilted and if you can manage to watch until the end you feel drained and bored.

Not the case here. Pleasure Girls is a real period gem. Great cast. Great locations. Beautifully shot. A rather classy production and a real time tripper. The film, shot in black and white, really captures London circa 1964.

Very simple story about a girl who comes to London to be a model and the various characters she comes across in her Kensington flat share.

The story is a bit silly and trite at times, but enjoyably so. As an eye over London at that time it's surprisingly illuminating in terms of fashion, cars, clothes, pretty girls and the early days the of the Swinging London era. I'm so pleased it's finally available on this top notch DVD.

It is great to get these small independent films out in the public domain. I made the Rocking Horse while still a college student with no money - it was nearly 50 years ago and i was twenty when I made it. It got an X - certificate and some notoriety!

I can remember seeing this film, The Pleasure Girls at the cinema in the 1960's. I can remember being very envious of Ian McShane going out with Francesca Annis.
This film was Directed and Screenplay by Gerry O'Hara, and shot in a rented house in Kensington. A very good cast, Suzanna Leigh, Rosemary Nichols and Klaus Kinski, doing a stellar performance as a Rachman type Landlord. Kinski's English was not particularly good at the time this film was made, and script changes were made.
This film did bring back such good memories, and it does illustrate the Directing talent of Gerry O'Hara. This film has been shown many times on numerous Networks over the last decades, and O'Hara never received and residual income from this film.

If you like films about the 60's, and this era is of interest to you. Certainly buy this DVD.

The Pleasure Girls

An excellent little film. The London as I sampled it back in the 60s when I had a flat with a FLAXman exchange number area. A microcosm of tales, and just when you think they have forgotten the "gay" element, there it is some way into the second half. Partying, gambling, booze and smoke, it's all there reminding us just how empty our western way of life can look to an "outsider". And with an ending that is no ending at all, just the way I have it in my own fiction writing: "there is no beginning, there is no end, there is only what is happening".

Good picture and sound. A must!
