Hard man Charles Bronson in a British sex comedy from the Swinging London era? As bizarre as it sounds, Bronson plays the fortyish American writer of erotic novels, Scott Wardman, who is seduced, married and then deserted by the titular 16-year old nymphet (Susan George).
It’s hardly surprising that the marriage doesn’t work out since Twinky is so intolerably dull and silly and Scott is clearly past it.
Trevor Howard, Jack Hawkins, Lionel Jeffries and Robert Morley put in brief appearances. The voice of Jack Hawkins, whose larynx was removed in the late 1960s, was provided by Charles Gray (uncredited), who often overdubbed his voice in Hawkins’ later years due to their similarities in speech.
Comedian Jimmy Tarbuck plays a character called Norman Vaughan, and Norman Vaughan plays a character named Jimmy Tarbuck.
There’s lots of lens flare, slow motion and freeze frames and the inevitable song bawling the girls name as she bicycles off into the future (written and performed by Jim Dale).
Twinky was released in some markets as Lola.
