Quotes:
Mrs. Maude Brown:She's fresh as a young heifer still romping among the daisies in her innocence, almost mooing for her mama.
Mr. Dinklespieler:So you say, my Dear, so you say. But I have noted in the past a slight tendency on your part to exaggeration. Some of your heifers have turned out to be overblown milk cows.
Mrs. Maude Brown:Dear Dinklespieler, I am not asking you to purchase sight unseen. You may investigate fully.
Mr. Dinklespieler:Fully? How fully?
Mr. Dinklespieler:Fifty guineas worth.
Mr. Dinklespieler:'od's blood, you ask more for an untried maiden than the government asks of me in taxes.
Mrs. Maude Brown:A lass like Fanny could never be taxing to a man of your prowess, dear cousin.
Mr. Dinklespieler:I have held my years well, I dare say, eh?
Mrs. Maude Brown:You have not aged one whit since you bounced me on your knee years ago.
Mr. Dinklespieler:I bounced you Madam, but not on my knee!

Turn an erotic novel into a cheap farce and the result's not pretty, 15 December 1999
Author: elt from Massachusetts, USA

This is probably the most expurgated version of Fanny Hill you'll ever see. The only way to get an R rating in 1964 for a movie with a sexual subject seems to be to turn it into a leering, puerile comedy. The problem is that it doesn't work as a comedy, or as erotica, or even as historic fiction.

The plot revolves around Fanny's belief that she has been taken in by a kind lady to work in a hat shop, instead of in an expensive brothel. Fanny manages to avoid the clients she's been set up with for the entire movie without ever finding out the truth. The plot never evolves beyond this obvious story. There's also no attention paid to accuracy: the setting for the movie lurches around between 1750 and 1890, and the dialogue ranges even further.

Of all the actors in the movie, only Leticia Roman and Miriam Hopkins show any life. The others are stick figures, feigning animation with affected voices and arched eyebrows. Not that Roman and Hopkins aren't guilty of overacting: they just occasionally show there might be more there.

This movie may be worth preserving along with "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice" for anthropological studies on 1960's Hollywood attitudes towards sex, but it's not worth watching for entertainment. Read the book.
