For Men Only (1967) Poster

A sophisticated London fashion columnist takes a job with a small-town publisher and "moral crusader", much to the dismay of her rich, jealous boyfriend. The "crusader", however, turns out to be not quite what he says he is.

Would anyone stumbling out of For Men Only in 1967, ever imagine that Pete Walker would amount to something as a film director, let alone become a bona fide auteur of 1970s British horror cinema?, propably not. Walker's early films tend to look like something Harrison Marks would have made on a really off-day...from a script he'd found in Talbot Rothwell's dustbin. Although there are a couple of Walker traits present and correct here, ineffectual male characters, hypocritical authority figures and (in the long version) crime elements and bondage, it wouldn't be until 1970 that Walker really got it together and made one of his best films 'Cool it Carol'.

A featurette length, Eady cash grab in the UK, Walker was obliged to shoot additional sleaze footage for the US release (as 'Hot Girls for Men Only') which brought the running time to just over an hour and introduced a gangster subplot to the film that makes it slightly more bearable. The Hot Girls for Men Only version was also shown in UK membership only sex cinemas, and the additional footage released by Walker himself on the 8mm market as two short films 'The Round-Up' and 'Planned Seduction'.

Teri Martine, who was in the background for a couple of scenes in For Men Only, told me she eventually stopped working for Walker, due to the behaviour of his over possessive glamour model girlfriend Donna Marlowe (later Donna Reading) who'd get jealous of the other models that worked for him and give them earache because of it. So this story of a henpecked playboy with a possessive girlfriend is propably autobiographical.
