TOURIST ATTRACTION by Patrick Skene atling


Email this review


A sophisticated trifle sheers between impudence and malice, annotates Anglo-American life, and follows Marjorie Stanmore, widowed at 32, on her maiden voyage to England. (The double entendre is intended- Marjorie's older husband had been impotent.) There Marjorie, who hasn't lived at all, meets Michael who has lived widely- off women. He has a P.R. job and is opening up the stately homes of England to American viewers, capped by a garden party at Buckingham Palace. mity- perhaps more- is quickly achieved when Michael secures an admissions ticket for Marjorie but there is anything but a gala finale to the whole affair.... An incidental entertainment which kicks up its heels, steps on a few toes, and leaves almost no traces.
