Many were the sex comedies that England made during the seventies, with a significant part released by Jezebel. I do remember watching some at the time, although I have forgotten most of their titles. But one that clearly comes to mind is the delicious "The Sex Thief," a spicy sex comedy directed by a young Martin Campbell, who would years later be responsible for James Bond's "Casino Royale" and "Goldeneye."

The film stars David Warbeck - who at one time was considered to play James Bond -- as Grant Henry, the sex thief, who, during the day, works as a "creative artist" - never figured that one out. He is an attractive guy and, when discovered by his female victims while conducting a robbery, they quickly fall for his charms, with one saying, "I should call the police," and Grant just answering, "Later." Yep, as simple as that. However, the cops are after him, due to a clue given by one aspiring actress, trying to get publicity, when she tells the police that, "he had a Russian accent. I'll do anything I can to help such a beast to be put behind bars." Of course, she also got a taste of the thief, or vice versa. Unfortunately for Grant, a sexy insurance lady (Diane Keen) had developed the perfect trap to catch the famous sex thief. She is aided by two inept and horny cops.

"The Sex Thief" is truly funny, with smart and hilarious dialogue. Of course, as any film of the time, it is loaded with female and male nudity. This, friends, is a classic of the genre, in a magnificent Blu-ray edition. (UK, 1974, color, 90 min)

[The Sex Thief AKA Her Family Jewels - 1973 - 88 minutes - directed by Martin Campbell - Widescreen] The late David Warbeck (who later appeared in three Lucio Fulci horror films in the 80’s and a ton of other films) stars as Grant Henry AKA the Sex Thief in this silly but surprising 1973 British sex comedy. A writer of trashy paperbacks, Henry moonlights as a masked jewel thief who is usually caught in the act but lures his female captors to bed. He is a criminal by choice, not by necessity. Bedroom gyno-gymnast that he is, the women all lie to the authorities about his identity and secretly hope to get burgled again and again.

A shameless Hollywood producer and a ditzy blonde wannabe movie star try to drum up publicity by claiming that the notorious thief assaulted her. Enraged and engorged that his name has been tarnished, our beloved Sex Thief purchases a toy gun and stalks the actress. In a forced apartment entry, he catches her in the bath before the pair passionately reenact her made up fantasy scenario. Typically dimwitted and corrupt cops more interested in peddling contraband blue movies (porn in today’s vernacular) than catching the thief also become involved for comedic effect. Despite the softcore stereotype of the British sex-comedy film, this one is fairly well made and occasionally funny, mildly sexy and a fairly flagrant female fleshfest.

Michael Armstrong, who acts in the film as a breast obsessed cop, wrote the screenplay under the demonic alter ego Edward Hyde, is most familiar to exploitation fans for the much maligned and frequently banned ‘Mark of the Devil’ as well as the autobiographical ‘Eskimo Nell’, another Brit sex comedy from that time.

This one was the worst show I have seen in quite a while. It's so bad I cant or don't want to say any more about it.

I was hoping for a little more British humor. Entertainment value is truly lacking. Good looking early 70's girls, though.
