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, and some sparks begin to fly.
Behind the scenes
Baker's expectations were high, hoping to attract a wide popularity on the basis of the film being aimed at a young audience, with most the film's leading players being under 21 years of age, but his hopes were dashed because of difficulties obtaining a release - none of the actors at the time were stars, the film received an X Certificate, and it was eventually released on a poorly promoted Double bill, after a delay of two years being left on the shelf.
The film was based on the 1960 novel In My Solitude by David Stuart Leslie.
