Lord Wingate, aquitted after appearing in court for fraud, starts up a 'finishing school' to teach girls how to extract money from rich men, in return for a percentage of their gains. He enlists the help of the Duchess of Burwood (Alcoholic Aristocrat played by Rose Alba) as a teacher and Hector (Cockney Geezer played by Nosher Powell) as fitness instructor. A probation officer friend supplies the first batch of pupils fresh from Holloway prison via a clapped out old mini bus. Suspicious neighbours and police together with newspaper reports naming the prison girls now hobnobbing in high society results in a raid and new court appearance for Lord Wingate. The Judge sentences him but plots to start up his own 'school for sex'.
Amusing sixties sex comedy
I wasn't really sure what to expect going into this one; my experience of Peter Walker extends only to his horror movies, some of which are excellent (House of Whipcord) while others are terrible (Die Screaming Marianne). School for Sex is an early Walker film (actually, his first according to IMDb) and it's his attempt at a sex comedy. The film doesn't exactly have a great reputation among the few who have seen it, and that's not really surprising - but all the same, I actually rather liked this silly little film. Naturally, everything in it is rather tame these days, and compared to other films like this from the late sixties - not all that lurid for the time it was released in. The film was obviously intended to be more of a comedy than a sex film, and doesn't go much further than showing it's female cast topless. The plot focuses on a man convicted for fraud. He decides to start up his own 'school for sex' with the help of a local Duchess. There he teaches girls how to seduce men and get them to part with their cash...
The plot was clearly not the main thing on Peter Walker's mind. The film is only short, running about seventy five minutes and the story neither goes anywhere nor has any real point. Obviously the main aim of the film was to show a bit of skin and make his audience laugh, and Walker just about achieved both of those aims. The comedy isn't really very funny, but it's all very light-hearted and the film has a sort of British charm to it which is nice. I can certainly see why the film doesn't have a great deal of fans; aside from the reasons mentioned, this is never going to be a film that will appeal to everyone; porn fans are likely to be disappointed at the lack of sex and nudity, while non-porn fans probably wont enjoy it much either. The central idea certainly could have lead to a much better movie too; I have to admit that I enjoy movies about people being conned anyway, and showing young girls doing it to 'men who should know better' could have been much more fun. On the whole, this is not exactly Peter Walker's best work, but for what is I enjoyed it, although I wouldn't recommend anyone going to great lengths to track it down!
Sexy spin and satire take on showing skin and teaching all involved lessons!
"School for Sex" another entry from Paul Walker is a little bit more blunt provocative and open as far as showing skin. Still it's a joy even though the plot might be a little lame still it entertains and each involved both the pretty women and rich playboys learn lessons in the end. After a rich playboy is in court for fraud upon getting away he decides to open up a house to teach girls new manners and how to go for rich men and learn how to control. And plenty of hot scenes are shown of girls wearing sexy colored bras and nudity and love scenes push it a little for a British film. Thru it all the fun and erotic tease games all come to an end still this picture entertained in a sexy and unique manner.
Fun'n'frothy British sex comedy romp
Suave rich dandy Lord Wingrate (a solid and likable performance by Derek Aylward) starts a private finishing school in order to teach attractive young women how to extract money from wealthy men. Wingrate gets a percentage of their fiscal gains in return for his lessons.
Writer/director Pete Walker relates the enjoyably screwball story at a snappy pace, maintains a pleasing cheeky tone throughout, milks a substantial serving of laughs from the amusing sense of blithely bawdy humor, and delivers a generous amount of tasty bare distaff skin. Moreover, this movie further benefits from lively contributions from Rose Alba as alcoholic instructor the Countess of Burwash, Bob Andrews as the meddlesome Sgt. Braithewaite, Vic Wise as bumbling probation officer Horace Clapp, and Nosher Powell as clumsy oaf gym teacher Hector. The pulchritudinous presences of such lovely birds as luscious brunette Francoise Pascal, buxom blonde Amber Dean Smith, the fetching Cathy Howard, and the voluptuous Sylvia Barlow certainly doesn't hurt matters in the least. Both Harry South's right-on smooth jazzy score and the vibrant color cinematography by Reg Phillips are up to par. A real hoot.
