Photos from 28th January 1963: Michael Winner (30 October 1935 – 21 January 2013) directs English actress Diana Dors (born Diana Mary Fluck; 23 October 1931 – 4 May 1984) in a bedroom scene for the crime drama West 11.
The movie took a look at life in Notting Hill, London, then a seedy, sleazy slum. The title is taken from the postcode W11,
Is the movie any good? Not really, no. As Variety noted at the time:
This is only hackneyed drama about a young man (Alfred Lynch) who is a layabout, a misfit, a self-pitier (‘I’m an emotional leer,’ he says, profoundly). He gets involved with chicks, can’t keep a job and gets mixed up with jazz clubs and seedy parties. Turning point in his life is when he meets up with Richard Dyce (Eric Portman), an ex-army con-man. He is talked into an association with Portman, who wants his aunt bumped off.
It has its merits. The sleazy London locations are very authentically shown. Perhaps too authentically.
