Bill turns violent and Josie flees home, in time for the opening of Dunn’s latest play Steaming, which is a great success. The film is set in London in the 1960s and it begins with wealthy young heiress Polly Dean leaving a large house in privileged Chelsea in a chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce. The Rolls-Royce then moves across the Thames near Battersea Power Station, where Polly gets out of the car and walks away alone with the opening credits following. She moves to a working-class community in Battersea, where she takes a job in Macrindles confectionery factory in an attempt to distance herself from her moneyed upbringing and make her own living. On the factory floor everyone is singing and all are friendly, but perhaps somewhat unhygienic – smoking as they work on the sweets. The other girls mainly discuss men and sex. She meets two working-class sisters, Sylvie and Rube. She is asked to join the two sisters and a few other girls in the factory in the pub, The Pavilion. They get the local boys to buy them drinks. She declines a lift home on a motorbike. Some are heading "up the junction". But Polly walks home. Squeeze is a band from London, and we know that music videos were trendy in Europe prior to catching on in the United States. As such, this song does have its own video, which was actually filmed in a house where John Lennon (1940-1980) used to live. And it has been noted that said clip features Michelle Collins, prior to her embarking on a prolific (most notably soap opera based) acting career. The women’s conversation is earthy and salty, if anything rather toned down from real life (you know who you are, ladies of the Ronson Factory circa 1970).Strictly Come Dancing's Vito Coppola continues to fuel speculation as he shares a steamy message to Ellie Leach amid romance rumours It conjures up, very vividly, a way of life and a way of thought – that ability to be very present.

Laurence Fox tells libel trial he has been financially 'destroyed' by 'hurtful' racism allegations that have left him without acting work a b c Cranston, Ros. "Up the Junction (1965)". screenonline.org.uk. British Film Institute . Retrieved 15 September 2016. Nell Dunn, who, at that time, was married to Jeremy Sandford, and was born in London and educated at a convent up to the age of 14, actually received abusive phone calls following advance publicity for the play. But she defended it by saying "My writing never goes too far. I feel it suggests things for people's own interpretation.” The Sandfords lived in Battersea for three years and for several weeks Nell worked in a factory wrapping sweets for 2s 5d (12p) an hour. "To me, the girls I wrote about were tremendous", she said. "Some were called 'slags' - meaning that they were free and easy with their love. They had tremendous energy. God knows, if most girls lived up to their standards, the world would be a gayer place." Though justifiably not considered a particularly important British film of the late sixties, "Up The Junction" has much genuine charm and remains a film for which I have a lot of affection. She read The Muse in one day and loved it,” says Nell, who now lives in Fulham, close to her Chelsea roots and her adopted home of Battersea.
