A single, pregnant woman moves into a London boarding house where she meets a group of fellow misfits.
The film was green-lighted as result of a famous star, Leslie Caron, agreeing to play the lead (she was living in England at the time, following her marriage to Peter Hall). As a result, the lead character she played was changed into a Frenchwoman, having been English in the original novel.

The first floor light goes out by itself (as it does often due to the faulty switch) twice as Jane goes from Toby's room up to hers, looking for him.
In 60's bedsit land many houses had push-button light switches in the corridors that turned themselves off after a very short time to preserve electricity costs (and also as a fail-safe for people forgetting to turn them off). So the light switch was not necessarily faulty.
