rivest266: The opening movie was not quite an ‘adult’ movie (hardcore), as it starred Anthony Newley, Joan Collins with other notable artists such as Milton Berle, George Jessel, Stubby Kaye, Bruce Forsyth & Victor Spinetti. Considered a rarely seen cult classic today, it initially bombed at the box office and in the UK was given an (X) certificate and also in the USA it was Rated- X. Lots of nudity in this musical comedy.
