Plot

A Touch of Love (1969 film) Cinedelica DVD Review A Touch Of Love 1969

Rosamund Stacey (Sandy Dennis), a young 'bookish' girl in London society, spends her days studying for a doctorate in the British Museum and her nights avoiding the sexual attention of the men in her life. But one day, all that changes. Through a friend, she is introduced to rising TV newsreader/announcer George Matthews (Ian McKellen) and after a further chance meeting and a tumble on the sofa, she finds herself pregnant from her first sexual encounter. After a failed attempt at self-induced abortion, Rosamund resolves to have the child, leaving her on a solitary and at times discouraging path through pregnancy and into single motherhood, aided only by her close friend Lydia (Eleanor Bron).

    Max Rosenberg of Amicus Productions had made a reputation with horror films but wanted to branch into other areas. He optioned the novel for ₤1,000.

    Reception

    Milton Subotsky says the film was not a box office success but since the filmmakers sold it to the distributors for more than its cost, they made a profit on it. Rosenberg later said it was in his opinion the best movie that Amicus produced.
