The Profumo Affair (Scandal - 1989)
6 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Christine Keeler (born February 22, 1942) is a former English model and showgirl. Her involvement with a British government minister discredited the Conservative government of Harold Macmillan in 1963, in what is known as the Profumo Affair.

In July of 1961, Ward introduced her to John Profumo, the British Secretary of State for War, at a pool party at Cliveden, the Buckinghamshire mansion owned by Lord Astor. Profumo entered into an affair with Keeler, not realizing that she was also sleeping with Yevgeny Ivanov, a naval attaché at the embassy of the Soviet Union.

Born in Uxbridge, Middlesex, England, she was raised by her mother and stepfather in two converted railway carriages in the Berkshire village of Wraysbury. At age 15, she found work as a model at a dress shop in London's Soho quarter. At 17, she gave birth to a son after an affair with 'Jim', an African-American sergeant from Laleham Air Force base. She discovered she was pregnant only after he had returned to the United States, and she tried to abort the baby herself with a knitting needle, but failed. The child was born prematurely on April 17, 1959, and survived just six days.

That summer, Keeler left Wraysbury, staying briefly in Slough with a friend before heading for London. She initially worked as a waitress at a restaurant on Baker Street and there met Maureen O'Connor, a girl who worked at Murray's Cabaret Club in Soho. She introduced Keeler to the owner, Percy Murray, who hired her almost immediately as a topless showgirl. While at Murray's she met Dr. Stephen Ward. Soon the two were living together with the outward appearance of being a couple, but, according to her, it was a platonic "brother and sister"-type relationship. (read full article at source : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christine_Keeler)

Ward was played by John Hurt in "Scandal" (1989). www.imdb.com/title/tt0098260/

He also appears in Anthony Frewin's 1997 novel London Blues.
