      Audience Member Infamous as an exploitative film revealing Bisset's inadvertent frontal nudity, which was released after she became famous for "The Deep." The movie, on its own right, could have been an insight into a couple on the rut who needs to refresh their marriage. It's all takes in one day. Bisset's picked up by a rich man (Pier Oscarsson) who thinks she resembles his late wife. Their sex scene is not erotic because Oscarsson has no sexual chemistry and is too pale and undefined; Bisset seems to making up by her believable orgasm. Meanwhile her husband (Robert Powell) is interviewing for a computer job and has a weird exchange with the interviewer (Shirly Knight who's the best actor here). Their scenes are not well written and it's uncertain whether he's going to get the job simply because Knight finds him attractive; reverse sexual harassment? The scene of Bisset's daughter taking up with a young man is creepy and Bisset should be arrested for abandoning her child. Not well made and not memorable. It's worth a look for Bisset's fans like me but anyone else would find this movie boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw the movie "Secrets" in the early 70s when it was making the round of theaters while I was in the Virginia Beach Va area. I have been trying to locate it on other than VHS. I do hear that the actress herself has a problem with being available for distribution.
