Based on David Stuart Leslie's novel Two Left Feet is a story about Alan Crabbe (Michael Crawford), a callow youth desperate for a date with any girl who can offer him the experience he lacks. Every time Alan tries a manful stride into the jungle of sex, his two left feet turn the attempt into a trip-and-stumble. Then he meets Eileen (Nyree Dawn Porter), the new waitress at the corner cafe, who signals unmistakable messages with her large inviting eyes.Written by

This was one of several British films of the early 60s made by the ailing British Lion company (or else a satellite production company connected with it) to be denied a release in the UK until well over a year after it had been completed. Although made in early 1963, it was not released until May 1965 when it went out on a double bill with the similarly delayed Ring of Spies. See more »
Made before Michael Crawford found fame on TV.This is a fairly standard rites of passage.Nyree Dawn Porter plays the manipulative older woman,whilst Julie Foster plays the virginal true love.The problem with the film is that it is too insubstantial and at 90 minutes,it is about 20 minutes too long.Although it had an X certificate it is difficult to understand why the censor thought it rated the X certificate.It is very tame.
