Removal of Parallels section about Rachman[edit]

I removed the whole section; it was speculation, based on knowledge of Rachman which was almost co-incidental. As Barber makes clear in her memoir, the David character was based on a real person she had a real affair with; but this was not Rachman, it was somebody else also in the dirtier end of the property business in London. --VinceBowdren (talk) 10:17, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure what was removed, but here is Barber herself in The Times: "I suppose it all began six years ago when I wrote about my schoolgirl affair with a conman, Simon, an associate of Peter Rachman, the notorious slum landlord." page 1, 2nd para86.150.96.8 (talk) 09:39, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Anachronisms[edit]

The taxis are of the modern design, rather than the previous one in use in 1961. Deipnosophista (talk) 18:38, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Another anachronism, if you want to see it that way... the music she plays as a cellist during the film, (or that's being played as the actress performs in the orchestra scene)... according to the credits is from the Adagio of Anthony Payne's reconstruction of the sketches to Sir Edward Elgar's symphony no. 3. In the 1960s these were still sketches, and mostly in piano score (and locked up in the British Museum I believe, for the most part?...) and in no wise playable!

In the article it says that the Pentax K camera used in the film makes an anachronism, as the K-series Pentax cameras were not introduced until the 1970's. However, the came in the movie is a Pentax S2 or S3, which is period correct. Can somebody double-check? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.255.163.142 (talk) 10:24, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

I suggest that this section of the article be deleted; I mean seriously it's a substantial portion of the article yet adds nothing material to one's knowledge of the film, it's basically just showing off by some sad wiki-editor, no doubt aged about 15 (mentally at least), with limited social life and poor personal hygiene; I would add that it's also inconsistent with numerous other articles in wikipedia about films that don't have such a tedious section 16:10, 10 January 2011 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.232.34.3 (talk)

Review about antisemitism[edit]

In the reception section a critic who wrote that the film is antisemitic is mentioned, yet I really don't believe this represents a valuable opinion and no one else really sees this. Shouldn't it be removed?--99.251.94.170 (talk) 05:02, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Jenny {Mellor, Miller}?[edit]

I saw the film with subtitles, and I read “Mellor”. But in the article both names are written… How to know which is the correct one? Jill-Jênn 23:58, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

You are correct. It's fixed now. -- Brangifer (talk) 04:02, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Copy?[edit]

The content on the "plot" section was added entirely on this edition and it is pretty much the same as in IMDB. I don't know if the user that added it is the owner of the text or what is IMDB licence policy (although I think it is copyrighted content, from the bottom of their page) so I just removed it. If I'm wrong somebody should just undo what I did anyway. - Jorge Morais 19:26, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
