Originally released with an “X”-certificate at the ABC Shaftesbury Avenue on the 29th of August 1974, it’s a sign of how times have changed that the film is currently classified as a “15”. Produced by the filmmakers behind the Doctor film series starring Dirk Bogarde & James Robertson Justice, “Percy’s Progress” was released as “It’s Not the Size That Counts” in America.
Leigh Lawson has a long list of film credits including, to name a few, “Brother Sun, Sister Moon” with Alec Guinness, “Ghost Story” with Penelope Keith, “Love Among The Ruins” with Katherine Hepburn, Laurence Olivier, & Joan Sims, “The Devil’s Advocate” with Patrick Mower, “Golden Rendezvous” with Gordon Jackson, “Tess” with Nastassja Kinski, and “Madame Sousatzka” with Shirley MacLaine & Twiggy.
Leigh also appeared in the glamourous mini-series “Lace” with Herbert Lom, Honor Blackman, & June Brown, “Sword of the Valiant: The Legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” with Sean Connery & Peter Cushing, and appeared as himself with his wife Twiggy in an episode of “Absolutely Fabulous” with Joanna Lumley, where they return June Whitfield who’s mistaken them for Madonna & Guy Ritchie.
