Fox, The (1968)

This study – based on a novella by D H Lawrence – of lesbian couple Jill Banford (Sandy Dennis) and Ellen March (Anne Heywood) invaded by heterosexual Paul Grenfell (Keir Dullea) raised many eyebrows in 1968.

Prettily filmed in Canada, and featuring a sincere performance by Dennis, the movie was eventually diluted by circumspection that left much of the audience wondering what was so important.
