Lock Up Your Daughters! is a 1969 British historical comedy film directed by Peter Coe, and starring Christopher Plummer, Susannah York and Ian Bannen.[1] It is an adaptation of the stage musical of the same name set in 18th-century Britain. It lacks all the songs from the original stage production. It was one of a number of British costume films released in the wake of the success of the 1963 film Tom Jones.[2]


A bawdy yarn concerning three sex-starved sailors on leave and on the rampage in a British town.[3]

Cast (credited)[4]


In his review in the New York Times, Roger Greenspun wrote: "...a three-strand plot that has been so smothered in atmosphere, activity and authenticity that even the great traditions of theatrical untruth cannot breathe life into it. The production values of "Lock Up Your Daughters!" are ambitious enough to fill three movies, but they are not sufficient to substitute for one."[5]
