Baby Love is a British drama from 1969 directed by Alastair Reid. The film stars Diana Dors, Linda Hayden, and Troy Dante. Set in the swinging '60s of London, the film follows the life of a young woman named Luci, played by Linda Hayden. Luci's mother died when she was a child, and now she lives with her father, who runs a seedy business in Soho. Luci is naive and innocent, and her father does not want her to know about the realities of the world. However, Luci eventually learns about his business and decides to leave home and become independent.

Luci moves to a boarding house where she meets three men: Albie, Katch, and Eliot. Albie, played by Troy Dante, is a handsome young man who is a little rough around the edges. Katch, played by Keith Barron, is a playboy who is always chasing after women. Eliot, played by Dick Emery, is a comedian who is past his prime. Luci develops relationships with all three men, but her main interest is in Albie.

As the film progresses, Luci becomes pregnant, and she does not know who the father is. She writes a letter to each of the three men, explaining her situation and asking for their help. Albie and Eliot both offer to marry her, but Katch is already married and cannot offer any assistance. Luci decides to marry Eliot, hoping he can provide her with a stable life.

However, Luci is not happy in her marriage to Eliot. She misses Albie and decides to visit him at his place of work. Albie is working in a garage, and Luci is drawn to his rugged charm. They begin an affair, and Luci becomes pregnant again. This time, Albie is the father.

The film takes a dark turn when Luci's baby is born dead. Luci is devastated, and the doctors tell her that it was due to her previous pregnancy, which was too close together. Luci becomes depressed and turns to drugs and alcohol to cope. She eventually overdoses and dies.

Overall, Baby Love is a thought-provoking film that explores themes of love, lust, and loss. The film is set against the backdrop of the swinging '60s, and the fashion and music of the time are a significant part of the film. The acting in the film is excellent, particularly by Linda Hayden, who portrays Luci with sensitivity and vulnerability. The film is also notable for its frank depiction of sex and drug use, which was controversial at the time of its release.

In conclusion, Baby Love is a must-watch for anyone interested in British cinema from the 1960s. It is a powerful drama that explores important themes and features great performances by its cast.
