Beautiful, but amoral, model Diana Scott (Julie Christie) sleeps her way to the top of the London fashion scene at the height of the Swinging Sixties.
The second of three collaborations between Director John Schlesinger and Julie Christie. The first was Billy Liar (1963) and the third, Far from the Madding Crowd (1967).
"Ideal Woman" Interviewer:
Well, I do want our readers to feel that it is really your story; so, I thought I'd perhaps ask you a few questions and if you'd just answer them in your own words.
Diana Scott: Yes, I see. Alright, ask away.
In a compartment on a train after their visit with the writer Southgate, Diana and Robert kiss. Both of Robert's hands touch her face in a close shot. When the angle changes to a shot from the corridor looking into the compartment, they are still embracing but Robert has a cigarette in his right hand which is resting on his knee.
The original UK cinema version was cut by the the BBFC to remove shots of a man wearing a woman's corset and to heavily shorten a scene at a party in Paris where guests watch a couple making love on a hotel bed (the scene was edited to end the scene before the male partner appears). Video versions featured the same print though the cuts were later found and restored for the 2007 Optimum DVD release.
