About this deal

Ransome, who secretly enjoys pornography that he obtains from Day, tries to slip into a house party being hosted by Dougan and some of the models. Released in London in April 1977, Mary was marketed as 'the star' and the strategy worked perfectly: it ran continuously at the Moulin Cinema in Great Windmill Street, just off Piccadilly Circus, until 1981 - that's a staggering 201 weeks! Released to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Mary Millington s death, this special edition Blu-ray box set (limited to 3,000 copies) features Mary s most glamorous film roles, digitally remastered in high definition, including: Come Play with Me (1977), The Playbirds (1978), Confessions from the David Galaxy Affair (1979), Queen of the Blues (1979), Mary Millington s True Blue Confessions (1980), Mary Millington s World Striptease Extravaganza (1981) plus Respectable: The Mary Millington Story (2015), an in-depth documentary chronicling her extraordinary life. I've also written a new 80-page book about the movies, which features previously unpublished artwork and photos.

And just to put the cap on it, one also gets a glimpse of Throbbing Gristle’s Cosey Fanni Tutti doing her thing at Mayfair’s Burlesque Club. People were tiring of traipsing out to the local ODEON to watch sex comedies, preferring to stay at home to watch The Benny Hill Show instead.

Screenbound has encoded the movies in transparent AVC, finely preserving their original grain structure without overt processing.Included are Come Play with Me (1977), The Playbirds (1978), Confessions from the David Galaxy Affair (1979), Queen of the Blues (1979) and Mary Millington’s True Blue Confessions (1980). Of course, Mary was only one of many involved in the 'sexploitation' sex comedies of the 1970s - perhaps the most culturally important, but still one of many. Filled with scintillating new extras, packaged in a collectable case (displaying brand new artwork throughout) and including a huge 80-page book, with an introduction from David Sullivan and notes by biographer Simon Sheridan (author of Keeping The British End Up: Four Decades Of Saucy Cinema).

The pretty girl-next-door rose from obscurity as a model working for adult publisher David Sullivan (the British Hugh Hefner) to everlasting stardom overseas in 1977’s Come Play With Me.

Emmanuelle in Soho prologue (06:37 in HD) – 1981 prologue added to the start of the US release of the movie.

Leaving the plot to one side (it’s the best place for it), Come Play With Me follows the template set by the Confessions films and other ‘cheeky romps’ of a similar stripe, by mixing up the scenes of scantily-clad antics with comic turns by vaudevillian veterans coining it in such as Ronald Fraser, Alfie Bass and Irene Handl (reunited with Mary in The Great Rock N Roll Swindle). No such caveats for the last major feature film in this collection, Confessions Of The David Galaxy Affair.

cultural context to it all, and the actual Millington films he has assembled are often unexpectedly winning in their own weird ways. Even at a formative age I knew she was an 'adult actress', but couldn't quite understand how TV favourites like Diana Dors and Irene Handl were co-starring with her in naughty big-screen comedies. Apart from being Britain's most prominent advocate for the legalisation of pornography, Mary was also the star of some blockbuster movies. The film has been digitally remastered and the disc features an extensive stills gallery, production notes written by historian Simon Sheridan, plus Mary Millington's World Striptease Extravaganza (1981) and Response, a short lesbian film starring Mary Millington, made in 1974.
