Alan Lake is David Galaxy, the playboy astrologer who beds beautiful young women as easily as he reads fortunes. His glamorous conquests include a high society debutante, (sex superstar Mary Millington); and a beauty queen, (‘Miss Bournemouth’ Rosemary England); but he soon finds himself on the wrong side of the law. Not even his own horoscope can predict the future! First released at the Eros cinema on Piccadilly Circus in June 1979, this saucy sex comedy follows in the footsteps of Come Play With Me and The Playbirds and features a supporting cast of classic British actors. This print is beautifully restored from the original negatives. With a theme song performed by Diana Dors.

David Galaxy’s astrology job provides him with a healthy income and the freedom to do what he wants. He’s engaged in an affair with a female MP, has several girlfriends; plus other business interests including a beauty pageant (with perks, naturally!).

Spending much of his time gambling, drinking, and arranging dubious set-ups with his best friend Steve, he’s aghast to find a Chief Inspector from the Metropolitan Police at his penthouse flat door one afternoon, enquiring as to his whereabouts some five years previously. A cold case has been reopened and implicated David in a crime that saw someone murdered, but as long as he has an alibi…

Meanwhile, Steve has set David up with Millie, a posh girl about town, and arranged an underground gambling syndicate.

The movie provides a nostalgic look back at the late 70s era, capturing the fashion, dialogue, and society of the time. The film is infused with an offbeat, unconventional humour, presenting a quirky storyline involving astrology, law, robbery and murder.
