The 19 Year Old Glenda Jackson
12 November 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

The paths of the stars of 'La Bete Humaine' and 'La Strada' incongruously crossed on the set of this frivolous little picture which like most old British movies as usual ironically - given the subject matter - lies in its bit players (Glenda Jackson can just be glimpsed as one of Denis Lotis's teenaged fans near the end).

It's all very dull apart from a surprisingly rough boxing match between Tom Clegg and Sid James (both of whom not long afterwards became regulars in the early 'Carry On' films) and a likeable supporting turn by Colin Gordon as Josephine Griffin's father.
