Capital Celluloid 2021 — Day 196: Mon Nov 29

The Pleasure Girls (O'Hara, 1965): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.20pm

This screening is part of director Edgar Wright's London After Dark season. Full details here.

Edgar Wright introduction:
A most entertaining example of the ‘young girl moves to the big city’ genre that was so common in 1960s British cinema. This one is a little more wholesome and affectionate than its racy title and poster suggests, but as a snapshot of mid-60s London just before the scene explodes, it’s truly fascinating. It features a cast of very fresh famous faces such as Francesca Annis and Ian McShane, a pre-Doctor Who Anneke Wills, Hammer glamourpuss Suzanna Leigh and the darkly charismatic (when is he not?) Klaus Kinski.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
