Description by OLDIES.com:
Based on a novel by Kingsley Amis, this film follows the London arrival of Jenny Bunn (Hayley Mills), an attractive young teacher from the country with provincial ideas about love and marriage. She lodges with Dick and Martha (John Bird and Sheila Hancock), a married couple at odds with one another. Jenny quickly meets Patrick (Oliver Reed), who is determined to bed her despite her ideas about premarital sex. In offering Jenny his "advice" on contemporary men and morals, Patrick's good friend Julian (Noel Harrison) isn't above trying to seduce her himself. How will Jenny adjust to the amorous attentions of so many willing men? Newly remastered.
This 1970 British sex farce stars Hayley Mills as Jenny Bunn, a naïve young schoolteacher from the north of England who comes to swinging London to teach. She moves into a suburb and becomes friends with Anna (Geraldine Sherman). Anna is dating Patrick Standish (Oliver Reed), but when Anna introduces them, Patrick becomes smitten with Jenny. Patrick keeps trying to get Jenny to return his affections, but she is prim and resists. At a party at the home of Julian Ormerod (oel Harrison), she meets Patrick again. They talk, and he convinces her that his intentions are honorable. They agree to have a rendezvous a few days later. But in the meantime, Julian tells Jenny that Patrick really isn't sincere and only wants to see if he can be the one to conquer her virginity. The romantic comedy is based on a play by Louis S. Peterson.
