Overview

Georgy Girl is a bittersweet comedy drama about Georgy Lynn Redgrave, a slightly overweight, working-class virgin in her early twenties who shares an apartment with the gorgeous, promiscuous Meredith Charlotte Rampling. Georgy has never been the subject of the desire for any man until the wealthy, married employer of her family, James Leamington James Mason for whom her parents work as servants decides that he would like her for a mistress. Shortly afterward, the unmarried Meredith becomes pregnant and introduces Georgy to the father, Jos Alan Bates. Georgy and Jos fall in love. Although Meredith initially wants to give the child up for adoption, she agrees to let Georgy act as surrogate mother. Meanwhile, James - whose wife unexpectedly dies -- has also indicated that he wants to marry her. As the film approaches its denouement, Georgy is faced with a tough call: should she stay single and keep the child, marry James and keep the baby, or marry Jos? We won't divulge the ending here, but the finale is a heartbreaker. Georgy Girl was a tremendously popular film upon its 1966 release, as was the Seekers' catchy title song.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Considered fairly bold when it was released in 1966, Georgy Girl is a delightful comedy of sexual manners that does justice to its "Swinging London" setting. It celebrates the lusty principles of its time and place, even as it ultimately reaffirms more restrained, old-fashioned values. Although billed as a comedy, and containing some very funny moments, the film is surprisingly bleak at times, in its treatment of both its characters and the world in which they live. Georgy, high-spirited and strong-willed as she is, is displeased with herself and her perceived unattractiveness, while her gorgeous, promiscuous roommate (a divinely bitchy Charlotte Rampling) is a cold, calculating shrew, and James Mason's amorous sugar daddy is just plain oblivious. For his part, the ebullient, joyfully irresponsible Jos uses his carefree attitude as a thin mask to disguise his withering discontent. As played by Alan Bates, he doesn't so much personify the era's Angry Young Man -- he's too silly for that -- as embody the kind of attitude that would give voice to the hippie movement a couple of years later. Still, Georgy Girl is first and foremost a comic affair, and a very funny one at that. One of the more enjoyable romps of the 1960s, it made a star out of Lynn Redgrave (who took the part of Georgy after it was turned down by her sister Vanessa) and remains a winning portrait of an era and its shifting mentalities.

    Georgy is Irresistible!

    A thoroughly entertaining Swinging 60s comedy of sexual manners that was considered relatively bold when originally released in 1966. Silvio Narizzano's cheeky portrait of promiscuity may look understandably a bit dated and self-conscious by today's standards, but James Mason and Lynn Redgrave both received Oscar nominations for their marvelous performances, and the rest of the cast also deliver some memorable ones as well. Part of the enormously successful 'British Invasion' of music and cinema going on when American youth audiences couldn't relate to Rock Hudson or Doris Day, "Georgy Girl" joined "Darling", "The Knack" (both 1965), "Alfie", "Morgan" and "Blowup" (all 1966), causing Hollywood to sit up and take notice. All had been made with stars then virtually unknown in the U.S. and, instead of trying for mass appeal, all had appealed primarily to the under-thirty audience. From then on, the influence of these films made a tremendous impact on the American movie market. Arthur Penn's "Bonnie and Clyde", Stanley Donen's "Two for the Road", John Boorman's "Point Blank", Mike Nichols' "The Graduate", and Richard Brooks' "In Cold Blood" were all released in 1967 and successfully signaled the beginning of what 'Time' magazine christened "The New American Cinema."
