Sphere, London, 1980
The blurb on the back:
Hussy – The beautiful, sensual hostess who lived for the thrills of today and tried to forget tomorrow.
I don’t know if Helen Mirren makes a big thing on her CV of this 1980 movie, but somehow one doubts it. I haven’t seen the film myself, but there’s nothing here that suggests it’s anything other than a dull tease.
Our heroine is a hostess in an upmarket club and, well, that’s about as far as I got, to be honest. I wasn’t inspired and, from what I could tell, nor was Ms Kingsland. The book’s adapted from the script by first-time writer/director Matthew Chapman.
ARTISTIC MERIT: 1/5
Just a Gigolo
