The Blonde: Couldn't you give us just a couple of minutes?

Facts about

As a way of bypassing the Production Code (i.e. censors), MGM created "Premiere Productions". This was a dummy company which had no agreement or affiliation with the Production Code and, therefore, did not have to adhere to its standards. MGM did not have to cut the full frontal nudity or other sexually explicit scenes and maintained all rights to the film.
Thomas' Rolls Royce actually belonged to Jimmy Savile and used to be white but was painted black for the film.
Loosely based on the careers of Swinging London's ace fashion photographers David Bailey and Terence Donovan.
