Miss Scott is the only woman in this movie. On screen for three whole minutes. Wearing a bikini.

A fan disagreed with the rating and said:
Raises an interesting question: does the woman have to appear on screen? Miss Scott appears in the film speaking to another named female character on the phone. They are, however, talking about a man. Does that not count as 2/3?

The person she speaks to on the phone isn't a woman. They are an air force officer and they are called Freddie.
