Not Tonight, Darling (1971)

Attractive London housewife Karen Williams (the voluptuous Luan Peters) is frustrated and bored with her frigid and pompous work-obsessed solicitor husband, John (Jason Twelvetrees) and falls prey to the voyeuristic fantasies of a sleazy shop assistant.

She is ultimately seduced by the repellent Australian sales rep Alex (played by usually clean-cut Aussie, Vincent Ball) and blackmailed into attending swinging parties and starring in porn movies.

The acting is cold and wooden, the script is bad, there’s no plot to speak of and the ending is abrupt and unsatisfactory. All in all, the best part of the film is a brief scene featuring the band Thunderclap Newman rehearsing a couple of numbers.
