Capturing the spirit and imagination of the changing sexual attitudes of the Swinging Sixties, 'Twinky' is the story of a wordly-wise 16 year-old (Susan George) who falls for a mature American writer (Charles Bronson). 16 year-old Sybil Londonderry - know to her friends as Twinky - is at the stage where she doesn't know if she's a schoolgirl or a woman. Bright as a new penny, adolescent and insecure, pert and pixie-like, naive and charmingly awkward, yet partly precocious and mature, she's in the process of finding out fast. She's fallen for Scott Wardman - a 38 year-old American writer who met Twinky at a party.
Bubbling with happiness at her first affair and desperately in love with love, Twinky confides all to both her diary and the family solicitor but it's not long before her family finds out...

Try This for Thighs - Twinky review by CH

Spoiler Alert

Thirtysomething paperback writer Charles Bronson takes up with sixteen-year-old schoolgirl Susan George in the South Kensington of 1969, and they nip to Scotland to marry, but Lolita this isn't. With many a cartoonish moment, such as Robert Morley's appearing as a Judge, and a propensity - very Sixties - for freeze-frames, this never convinces, despite a few comic moments. Goodness knows what would be said if it were made now, what with the opening scene of a these mini-skirted teenage girls cycling to school and the camera forever closing in upon their pedalling thighs while Jim Dale sings a ditty on the soundtrack. As a glimpse of London and New York at the time, it is a curiosity. One cannot help but think, however, that Bronson was better suited to the shoot-'em-up side of cinema (though one must draw a veil over Breakheart Pass, which is perhaps even worse than this).
