Take A Girl Like You

Take A Girl Like You

Jonathan Miller's film of Kingsley Amis's comic novel (adapted for the screen by George Melly) casts Hayley Mills as a naïve young girl who moves from the North of England to teach in a London school and finds herself fending off the advances of a number of lusty suitors, including Oliver Reed, John Bird and Noel Harrison.

As much a document of its time as a satire on the sexual mores (and confusions) of the period, Miller's still remarkably fresh debut feature is buoyed by its terrific cast and a typically excellent Stanley Myers score.

This high definition remaster is presented with original mono audio sound track.
