The Man Who Had Power Over Women is a 1970 British comedy film directed by John Krish and starring Rod Taylor, Carol White and James Booth.[2] The screenplay concerns a successful Australian talent agent who grows disenchanted with his life, which includes a failing marriage and having to represent a troublesome rock group. Further complicating things, he begins an affair with his best friend's wife.


The original director was Silvio Narizzano who left the project prior to shooting. The screenwriters were Chris Bryant and Allan Scott, who were so upset with subsequent changes made they requested their names be taken off the film.[3]
