John Christopher - Blue jeans (1982)


This film answers the question once and for all, what comes between a young girl and her blue jeans. Behind every great man, there is a great woman, or so the saying goes, but then who is the woman behind the brilliant clothes designer, Gene Howard? Is it Ellie, his sizzling ambitious blond secretary who performs her most important office duties on her knees? No, it is his beloved wife, Debbie, who has inspired an exquisite new line of blue jeans, saving her husband's business from near bankruptcy. But, Gene's problems are not over. At a fashion show at the New York Sheraton, while the gorgeous models are displaying his skintight designs, Debbie catches Gene and his secretary performing some of her office duties. In disgust, she leaves, bumping into Tony, an ex-lover of hers who won't take no for an answer. Debbie will get her revenge. Her sister Cindy, a very, very friendly girl seduces an important European client of Gene's when he comes over for dinner. Cindy has spiked the food with an aphrodisiac, and Gene's designs become an overnight success. Tony and Debbie elope together, and Gene's fate falls into the hands of his insatiable secretary, Ellie.
