Sheridan dispels all of that by focusing on the exploitation market that cropped up and started to claim the box-office and entered popular culture via Benny Hill and the Carry On films.The stress of pre-production also led to the departure of Guy Hamilton and the appointment of Lewis Gilbert in the director’s chair (Hamilton had also been given the opportunity to direct the upcoming Superman: The Movie, although that job eventually went to Richard Donner). Not to brag or anything, but the Baker Family are famous for throwing quite literally the best parties in the entire multiverse. Growing up in the US in the late 1960's and '70's, some of my favorite films and TV programs were from the UK, for the simple reason that they offered the best look at women!

His was the life I wanted: full of glamorous locations, bottomless cocktails and always ready with a pun and a raised eyebrow. Saucy romps like CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW CLEANER, ADVENTURES OF A TAXI DRIVER and COME PLAY WITH ME, smashed box office records.
