Blondie's Number One Details


The Blondie referred to in this German film bears no relationship whatever to the cartoon character developed by shown in innumerable films in the late '40s and '50s. Instead, it details the adventures of a hip young teenager from Germany as she attempts to procure a residency permit in England among the hippie and rock 'n roll underground. She offers both money and sex for a marriage of convenience. Though one young man is quite willing to sleep with her, and doesn't mind helping to keep her around, he won't marry her. Instead, he takes her around to his friends and to their friends, to see if any are willing to marry her. This adequate little film features a number of denizens of Europe's hip musical underground playing themselves (Chris Little, Tom Snigger, Barney O'Brian, etc.), and a largely improvised script. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
