The 23 Year Old Susan Hampshire
Watching this film one is reminded of the old joke about Doris Day before she was a virgin; since this features Susan Hampshire before she was signed up by Disney (and with the Bad Girl ironically played by Jackie Collins).
Three years before she briefly but dramatically donned a wet bikini in homage to Ursula Andress in 'Dr No' in 'Wonderful Life', Miss Hampshire appeared nude (if that IS her!) for director Sidney J. Furie in this earnest little drama inspired by 'Tea and Sympathy' about an aspect of life in wartime Britain still little dealt with in films about that time (and that not all war wounds were in the arm), which carried an 'X' certificate in the year of the Lady Chatterly trial.
It could have done without that insistent music score by Bill McGuffie though...
