Library synopsis: [En] Who said that a rolling stone gathers no miss!? Mick Jagger does in the shapely, deliciously forms of Anita Pallenberg and Michèle Breton. His maxim, in the film, is that if a man is going to bed or take a bath, why do it alone? This is a film of firsts. It is Mick Jagger’s first dramatic role, and he is writing his first film score. It is the first English-speaking role for French actress Michèle Breton (she learned English in three months), and it is the first British film for German-Italian actress Anita Pallenberg. For , who wrote the original screenplay, and , lighting cameraman, it is the first chance at directing. The lead part in the film is taken by James Fox, six feet two inches tall, and with lightbrown hair and blue eyes. Written by Eric Marks
