Why not a movie about illicit love?

Here’s an ad from the November 14 1957 edition of the Toronto Daily Star that was an example of that era’s equivalent of clickbait:


Woman in a Dressing Gown is a British film. It won four awards at the 7th Berlin International Film Festival, and won the 1958 Golden Globe Award for best English-language foreign film. Despite this, and despite favorable reviews, the film lost money at the box office.

The Digital Fix has a review of this film on their website.
