              An interesting bit of gossip in that "Quick Shooting Archers" piece. They didn't of course go on to make Cassia after BoRP & OR!! It was to have been a European adventure. Emeric was keen, Micky wasn't. But it does show you how quickly their productions were made. Often (most of the time) it was one full feature film every year. How long does it take most people to make a feature film nowadays?

                Although Oh, Rosalinda! had a West End premiere, there were problems on the ABC release.

                Planned as the main feature, the supporting film for OR was
                'The Big Combo', the Colonel Wilde black and white noir crime movie.

                However, in the rougher districts of London Oh, Rosalinda! did not go down well with audiences, and for the nationwide release, ABC cinema managers were given discretion as to which film played as the first feature..

                This may have affected the box office takings for OR considerably !

                  Not even the scenes with Ludmilla in the bath? (as in the poster above)

                  I expect they got tired by that final song by Anton, it does drag on a bit, even for fans of The Archers

                    The poster leads one to expect a saucy sex comedy of the Brigitte Bardot 'Ooo La La' variety....and operetta (the source was 'Die Fledermaus') was probably not the music of choice for the yobbos/ teddy boys of the era !

                    It could have been the most costly and lavish British B movie ever ....

                      What, with a tagline like "She set the whole town talking with her saucy 'GOINGS-ON'... Oh, what a Girl!!"?

                      A 'B' movie? With a West End premiere?
                      The makers aren't responsible for how films are shown

                        Two films mentioned in post 2 which could do with an airing on TV. Zarak and Joe Macbeth.
