Another year, another great 1970s Ken Russell film. Twiggy is undeniable as an adorable stage ingénue in Ken Russell’s opulent, widescreen musical—made just one year after he exploded onto the international stage with Women in Love—a tribute-cum-slaughter of Busby Berkeley spectacle, pushed over the edge to pure mania.
