Interesting, if lurid view of "swinging London"
Part black comedy, part cautionary tale, "Cool it Carol!" is the frank story of a sometime-couple of teens from the Midlands who hope to make the big move to London, circa 1969. She to be a model, he to be a delivery driver for an auto company. Carol is played by the fresh and quite pretty Janet Lynn, who unfortunately did almost no other films. The boy, played by Robin Askwith, brings a modestly charming goofiness. The rest of the cast is made up mostly of unknowns who do a pretty good job, and the sets and costuming are quite characterful. The music is unfortunately bland and heavy-handed. The plot is fairly standard potboiler stuff, relieved somewhat by the rather blase' attitude of the teens. Supposedly it is based upon a true story, as reported by that paragon of reportage -- The News of the World(!) Considering how often such situations must've occurred, it is not too wild a claim.

In all, a good addition to the catalog of youth films set in London in the late 1960s, and made more watchable by the appeal of "Carol" herself. Where is she now?
