That Kind of Girl

Dir. Gerry O’Hara

UK 1963 | Black & white | 77 mins | Cert 12 | Drama

Cast: Margaret-Rose Keil, David Weston, Linda Marlowe

In 1960s London, a beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of an earnest peace-protestor, a dashing young toff and a roguish older man.  But fun and freedom turn to shame and despair when she finds that her naivety has put her lovers, and their partners – including the well-meaning Janet (played by Big Zapper's Linda Marlowe, in her first role) – at risk. Stylishly shot in crisp black and white, and set against a backdrop of smoky jazz clubs, ‘Ban the Bomb’ marches, and evocative London locations, this finely-tuned cautionary tale was the directorial debut of Gerry O’Hara (All the Right Noises, The Brute), and is presented in a new high-definition transfer.
