(1973) Dr. Matt Younger and his daughter arrive for a month-long visit to London for dirt-bike racing and unexpectedly, a new romance for the widowed Dr. Younger. His new love interest is the beautiful and playful Catherine who seems to enjoy eluding Dr. Younger as much as she enjoys eluding the mysterious men who are following her.
About The Classic International Black Cinema Series

Curator and host, Felix Curtis, came to Charlotte from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay area where he curated “The San Francisco Black Film Festival” and “Black Filmworks”, the annual film festival component of the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame, where he later served as Executive Director.
