That Kind of Girl 1963 12

77 mins United Kingdom Director. Gerry O'Hara

In 1960s London, a beautiful continental au pair finds herself wrestling with the affections of a peace-protester, a dashing toff and a roguish older man. But fun turns to shame and despair when venereal disease raises its ugly head. Set against a backdrop of jazz clubs and evocative London locations, this cautionary tale was the directorial debut of Gerry O’Hara (All the Right Noises).

This title is also available on DVD / Blu-ray in the BFI’s Flipside collection.
