    Abstract

    Loathed by critics, the British sexploitation comedy Confessions of a Window Cleaner (1974) was dismissed as tawdry and vulgar yet its massive popular appeal makes it an important indicator of popular taste in the much-maligned 1970s. Using new archival material, this article examines what the film offered and how it was deliberately crafted in order to appeal to a variety of audiences.
