In the 1970s there was a pretty English girl-next-door whose rise to the top was meteoric, controversial and scandalous. Her name was Mary Millington Britain s only genuine sex superstar. She became the star of Come Play with Me, which ran continuously at one London cinema for four years, and is still the longest-running movie in British cinema history. But Mary s 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 and threatened with a spell in prison, Mary found herself addicted to drugs. Tortured by self-doubt, she died at the height of her fame in August 1979. She was just 33. For the very first time, Simon Sheridan s enthralling documentary Respectable The Mary Millington Story reveals the truth behind a British icon and speaks to those who knew her best, including her family, former lovers and co-stars. Actor Dexter Fletcher narrates a story stranger than any fiction of lost innocence, fame, fortune and tragedy. This is the shocking, untold, true story of 1970s rebellion, painted against a backdrop of disco, politics and porn, where a beautiful blonde girl was sacrificed for her beliefs. Special features include: * Audio commentary by writer/director/producer Simon Sheridan * Respectable teaser trailer * Original 1977 Come Play with Me trailer * Party Pieces - short 1974 Mary Millington film * Confessions from the David Sullivan Affair featurette * Keep It Up, Sue Longhurst featurette * Sex Talk with Ed Tudor-Pole featurette
