Lady Chatterley’s Lover (1981)

Written in 1928, D H Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover had only been available, unexpurgated, in Britain since Penguin Books’ famous 1960 obscenity trial at the Old Bailey.

But it wasn’t until 1981 that somebody had the bright idea to film an English language version on home turf.
