It was not part of the Confessions series of films from Columbia Pictures that began in 1974 with Confessions of a Window Cleaner, but it was hoped that it would benefit commercially from the similarity of title.[2]

PlotEdit

A playboy astrologer has to prove an alibi to police for a robbery five years before.

CastEdit

ProductionEdit

The film was financed by businessman David Sullivan to promote the career of Millington, who was his girlfriend at the time.[3]

MusicEdit

Diana Dors performed the film's theme song over the opening titles.

ReleaseEdit

The film was Sullivan's first box-office flop, being released at a period when soft porn theatrical films were losing their popularity in Britain.[4]
