    I understand it was the first Royal Performance Film to carry an 'X' certificate.

              This scene was edited out for the film's Royal Film Performance ...Her Majesty does not approve of nudity ...!
              Well, there certainly was a "Her Majesty" at the 1969 Royal Film Performance, but not Queen Elizabeth II. The event was attended by HM The Queen Mother, HRH Princess Margaret, HRH Prince Michael of Kent and HRH Princess Alexandra of Kent.

                I have never known that scene to be blurred.Pamela Franklin retired from acting a few years later.

                  In Lili Marlene (cert U) this morning on TPTV, a big blob (not a blur) appeared in a scene between Hugh McDermott and Lisa Daniely for no apparent reason....it was not because of poor print quality ....who is doing this, and what is their agenda ?
                  Countries which have heavily censored films in the past include Ireland, Spain, Middle Eastern states, and others with an ultra conservative religious agenda ! The UK should not follow...

                    Very annoying, and counter productive as it draws attention to the scene....

                        I think the film received an 'X' certifate for this one shot...

                        I remember at the time it generated a tremendous amount of publicity for the film in the popular press, and it may have been the first such shot in a UK film, apart from the nudist films of course....though there were the nudist colony scenes in I'm All right Jack which may have been the first ..

                          Way back then I seem to remember that the mere idea of adultery or similar themes was enough to get an X certificate, I believe that The Little Hut (1957) was given an X for that very reason.

                            The Little Hut was actually an A certificate. These days Only Two Can Play is a PG.

                              I remember it as an X Cert in our area. Maybe other councils were different. In any event I left before the end wondering why the "X".
