Swinging London becomes limping London when Rita Tushingham (Doctor Zhivago) and Lynn Redgrave (The Virgin Soldiers) make the scene and have a Smashing Time.

Carnaby Street comes alive in 1970’s Smashing Time.

Carnaby Street will never be the same after Rita and Lynn embark on a mod adventure to fulfill their dreams of excitement and success. In the beginning, they stick together and get by working as cocktail hostesses and dish washers. However, their luck changes in no time and they part ways while swinging into fame, Redgrave as a recording star and Tushingham as “the face of the 1970s”, realizing that smashing times must come to an end.

This fun-loving 1970 British comedy-musical was directed by Desmond Davis (Clash of the Titans) and co-stars Michael York (Fedora).

As a bonus feature, the Blu-ray and DVD (which were struck from a 4K scan of the original camera negative) feature a commentary track by film historian Kat Ellinger.
