Overview

Likely inspired by Christian Marquand’s Candy from the previous year, Twinky (known in America as Lola) exemplifies the popular late 1960s/early 1970s plot device that pairs a free-spirited younger woman with a middle-aged man – also seen in films such as Save the Tiger and Clint Eastwood’s Breezy.
