Life Imitating Art
13 January 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

In 1963 John Prufumo a Conservative MP in the Cabinet had an affair with a model Christine Keeler.He made a statement in the Commons in which he lied.Subsequently he was forced to resign his post and as an MP and retire to private life.Keeler had been involved in a simultaneous affair with a Russian spy.Some of these ingredients are in this film.It probably showed the workings of parliament more to the public than any other media.there being no broadcast of parliament at that time.It is a fine but long forgotten film.One can only wonder why.Incidentally there are some fine views of the old Euston Station which was vandalised by its demolition in 1963.They subsequently wanted to do the same to St pancras,but thankfully this was successfully opposed.The only slight problem is the pointless use of Cinemascope.In fact it is rather irritating at times.
