Twinky (1970)

Hardman 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).

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. The theme song was written and performed by Jim Dale.

Released in some markets as Lola.
