Extract From Britmovie

“Sixties’ backstreets bedroom drama adapted from Nan Maynard’s rather middling novel. Director Sidney Hayers fashions an interesting drama amid the sordid squalor of London and creates a number of genuinely sympathetic characters. Ian Hendry giving a performance of compelling magnetic brilliance as the jack-the-lad charmer capable of turning from seducer to scoundrel and back again in the blink of an eye.

Suburban housewife Margery Graham (June Ritchie) feels trapped living in the shabby Battersea terrace of Jubilee Close with her lazy husband (Mike Pratt) and small daughter. Harry (Ian Hendry), a slick salesman and nightclub owner lodging with her mother next-door continually makes advances towards Marge which are rebuffed, until she finally gives in after he helps find her missing daughter. Bored with Marge, he then abandons her and turns his attentions to her college-educated younger sister, Jinny (Annette Andre). Marge becomes infatuated with Harry, and when she discovers that he plans to marry her sister, she attempts to commit suicide – leaving a note exposing her indiscretions.”
