An old iconic movie that is worth a watch once at least, just for the bikes, birds, and the Clothes and music as well as the Burn ups.


Dot (Rita Tushingham) is a girl who marries motorcycle maven Reggie (Colin Campbell) to escape her parents’ influence.

Dot tells Reggie she is pregnant in an attempt to get him back — with no result, but when Reggie comes home to find his wife in bed with another man, he decides to go off to sea with Pete.

Pete leaves Reggie shaken and alone when he goes off with a group of sailors out to satisfy their same-sex lust. The film was controversial at the time of its initial release. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

The movie is very dated but back then was very unique, I like the Ace Cafe parts and the riding, the acting stinks but it was a B movie but great music and clothes too.
