After a prolific career shooting 8mm glamour loops, Pete Walker moved into independent film production at a time when British mainstream cinema was in a slump.  In FOR MEN ONLY, a writer for Women's Vogue is urged by his jealous fiancee to take a job for a more serious conservative magazine only to discover that it is a front for girly magazines.  In SCHOOL FOR SEX, an aristocrat five times divorced and swindled of his fortune opens a school for sex to teach young women how to con men out of their fortunes in exchange for a hefty commission.
