Usually here in Canada we have been more up-to-date with the various aspects of British culture than most of the world ( Monty Python toured here before they ever appeared on American television ) but this time I have to ask -

Mary's films look like nudie versions of the 'Carry On' films which were always popular here in Canada. I did a search for "Private Pleasures' on the Ontario Film Review Board website and it was indeed classified here in 1978. I'm sure it's the same film as I can vividly remember the ads for these kind of films that were always playing somewhere in the pre-video days.
Perhaps I'll check out the DVD section of Amazon.uk and see what I've been missing....
