Georgy Girl is a 1966 British comedy-drama romance film based on a novel by Margaret Forster. The film was directed by Silvio Narizzano and starred Lynn Redgrave (as Georgy), Charlotte Rampling, Alan Bates, and James Mason. The film also features the well-known title song, "Georgy Girl" as performed by the Seekers.
The opening credits show the title character walking through the streets of London and being tempted into a hairdressers where she has her hair set in a far more contemporary style. She immediately changes her mind, and runs through the streets until she reaches a public convenience. Once there, she submerges her hair in a sink-full of water, happy to return to her previous unkempt hairstyle.
