There have been many discrepancies involving the recent DVD release of this title by Image Entertainment:
The DVD represents the full-length 99-minute version of the film that has not been seen since the 1970s. There have been many versions of the film with various running times. The original U.S. version ran 84 minutes, omitting 15 minutes of crucial scenes. The DVD is the uncut version and has been digitally rtemastered.
The version of the film on the DVD is presented in 1.33:1 full frame. Many people claim the film was shot widescreen. Director Pete Walker shot the film in a 1.33:1 open matte aspect ratio with the intention of matting the film at 1.85:1. As the 1.85:1 matting would have eliminated the excess picture info at the top and bottom of the frame, the film is presented as shot.
Somehow this film manages to be boring as hell even with the lovely Susan George all over it, and in her prime too.
This disjointed relic from British Cinema's Bronze Age features George as a bonne viveuse who is keeping her distance from a dis-functional family which threaten to unravel her hopes of a normal romantic life, and all because she possesses within her mind the secret swiss bank account number which contains her inheritance, which will be entirely her's when she reaches the age of 21. Various losers try to get her to come across with the goods and they certainly take their time with it. And for some odd reason Maryanne tags along with their schemes right up till the last minute even though she knows who she's dealing with. It's kind of confusing.
There is a cheesy song about Maryanne at the end, and the opening credits are rather dated, with Ms. George doing her best go-go dancer routine.
