Notes On a Scandal

Reading Christine Keeler's memoirs last week has got me thinking. I know that there have been two versions of the Profumo Affair committed to celluloid; The Christine Keeler Story (a cheap cash in from 1963) and more notably Scandal, a great movie from 1989. But imagine if Scandal was made say twenty years earlier? Who would play the pivotal roles?

Well here's my dream cast....


As Christine Keeler


Charlotte Rampling



As Stephen Ward


Dirk Bogarde


As John Profumo


Donald Pleasence


As Mandy Rice Davies


Adrienne Posta



And as Eugene Ivanov


Either Hardy Kruger


Or Maximilian Schell



So, what do you think?
