A Matter of Innocence (1967)

Universal Pictures
Directed by Guy Green
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Twenty-one-year-old Hayley Mills travels to Singapore with her aunt for a vacation. Her aunt dies in a swimming accident, leaving Hayley alone and with plenty of cash and jewelry. She falls for a local tour guide who convinces her to ditch her glasses and conservative dresses for contacts, a new hairdo and makeup, and sexy clothes. Hayley revels in the attention from the opposite sex, sleeping with the tour guide and going on dates with a rich American playboy. However, she soon tires of her new found popularity and decides to go back to England. It's Hayley's movie all the way, but even she can't save this from her character's implausible sudden transformation, cringe worthy dialogue and dated fashions.
