Respectable The Mary Millington Story

strongNarrated by actor Dexter Fletcher, Simon Sheridans enthralling film reveals the truth behind the extraordinary life of Mary Millington, Britains only genuine sex superstar Speaking to those who knew her best, this fascinating documentary uncovers a story stranger than any fiction, one of lost innocence, sex, fame, fortune and tragedy that resonates as loudly today as it did four decades ago strong


In the late 1960s, there was a pretty blonde girlnextdoor who truly personified the word glamour Discovered by a local photographer, Mary Millingtons rise to the top was meteoric, controversial and scandalous From illegallyshot pornography and highclass prostitution to becoming the most famous naked pinup of the 1970s, her racy reputation could sell a million newspapers and one of the biggest box office films of all time


Celebrated in thousands of sexy photographs, moving pictures, libidinous words and even a notorious High Court obscenity trial, Mary fought vigorously against the Establishment for the right to express herself in the way that she wanted In just a few short years she amassed a vast fortune and had affairs with the most powerful men in Britain Her sexuality was accessible and her personality addictive Everybody wanted a piece of Britains Queen of Sex


But Marys sexual bravado hid a darker side She fought crippling insecurity and struggled to find her voice in a tumultuous decade of social change Persecuted by the authorities, tortured by selfdoubt and addicted to drugs, Mary died at the height of her fame She was just 33


Documenting Marys bravery and determination to be a trailblazing sexual liberator, thwarted by a society not yet mature enough to accept her, this is the shocking, untold story of 1970s rebellion, painted against a backdrop of disco, politics and porn, where a beautiful girl sacrificed herself for her beliefs
