  Outside of maybe seeing a few nudie pics of her in some British porn mags I acquired at a young age I really didn't know much about Mary Millington before seeing this documentary. I think it's safe to say she was a way bigger deal in England than here in the U.S. but even if you have no idea who she was this is still a fairly entertaining look at a very uninhibited lady who came out of the swinging 60s and worked her way through the European smut-market to make a whole bunch of money off of horny fellows. It's all the more remarkable that she was able to accomplish this living in a country where much of the material she appeared in was technically illegal at the time but notoriety does sell and it did just as well 40 years or so ago.
 This made me want to seek out a bunch of British sex comedies that she appeared in(COME PLAY WITH ME, THE PLAYBIRDS etc.) as soon as I can! It does play, for the most part, more like a TV special(with porn scenes!) than a feature film but it's still worth a watch to see how far, in some ways, we've come from certain types of repression. Of course it could be argued that today's repressive ideologies are just as pervasive but hey at least you can watch porn in England so I guess that's something nice.
