A taste of honey is an English film that was made in the early 1960s. It tells the story of a teenage girl named Jo who lives with her single mother in a rented room. Her mother neglects her, and after a brief romance with a sailor, Jo finds herself pregnant. She also finds herself homeless because her mother has married her `fancy man' and he does not want Jo living in his home . Jo lands on her feet for a while because she finds a job, a new flat and a new friend called Jeff. Jeff is a young gay man who looks after Jo and takes care of her and the flat while she is working. However Jo`s happiness is short lived after a few months when her mother returns and starts to take over.

Totally unrelated to the movie, but now I have Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass playing in my head

It's not my kind of movie. Looking at the picture I think to recognize the young actress, I think she was in Doctor Zhivago, this is a movie I liked.

The young actress was Rita Tushingham and the other one was Dora Bryan they were both very popular in English films.

@millie02 Rita Tushingham was in fact in Doctor Zhivago, she played the "supposed" daughter of Zhivago and Lara.

A terrific movie! Rita Tushingham plays Jo and Murray Melvin is Jeff. As I recall the movie was daring because the sailor is black.

Yes, I should imagine it was very controversial at that time.
