Re­spectable: The Mary Milling­ton Story

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW -

doc­u­men­taryThis en­ter­tain­ingly opens up worm-cans as it blazes through the short life of lead­ing 1970s’ Bri­tish porn star mary milling­ton. The tiny, out­go­ing blonde moved from semi-un­der­ground hard­core to bub­bly soft­core smut (Come Play With Me), be­came the smil­ing yet trou­bled im­age of a be­lea­guered in­dus­try in an era of re­pres­sion and hypocrisy, and died young in mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances. It has great anec­dotes, rude clips and an Amy-like un­happy end­ing.
