Having read the less pleasant reviews of French Dressing I've just re- watched it after an absence of 20 years, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought it utterly charming and delightful. It's very much a filmed seaside postcard and looks as if everyone loved making it up as they went along. I certainly appreciated the surrealist humour and wasn't at all surprised to see Ken Russell named as director. Bits of it reminded me of Jonathan Miller's Alice in Wonderland (made two years later!), and the burning of the inflatable models, bizarrely, put me in mind of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. And I found Alita Naughton irresistible. Pity its reception so upset Ken Russell.
