  • Description

    BRITAIN'S HOUSE OF COMMONS ON MONDAY, (DECEMBER 16), BEGINS THE DEBATE ON THE CONTROVERSIAL REPORT BY LORD DENNING ON THE SECURITY ASPECTS OF THE PROFUMO AFFAIR.THE ONCE EXPLOSIVE ISSUE OF THE SCANDAL IS NOW THOUGHT UNLIKELY TO PRODUCE ANY MAJOR CLASHES WITH THE RESIGNATION OF MR.HAROLD MACMILLAN, AS PRIME MINISTER, AND A LAPSE OF NEARLY A MONTH SINCE PUBLICATION OF THE MASSIVE REPORT.

    HOWEVER, THE PROFUMO AFFAIR STILL MADE HEADLINES THIS WEEK WITH THE WORLD PREMIERE IN COPENHAGEN, OF THE LIFE STORY OF MODEL CHRISTINE KEELER, LINKED WITH FORMER WAR MINISTER, JOHN PROFUMO.

    THE FILM, RELEASED ON FRIDAY, (DECEMBER 13), WAS MADE BY A GROUP OF INDEPENDENT PRODUCERS IN DENMARK, AND STARS RED-HAIRED YVONNE BUCKINGHAM AS CHRISTINE KEELER AND JOHN BARRYMORE JNR.AS DR.STEPHEN WARD.

    CRITICS HAD LITTLE PRAISE FOR THE FILM WHICH ONLY SHOWED MISS KEELER, HERSELF, VERY BRIEFLY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FILM.

    THE FILM WAS TO HAVE BEEN MADE IN BRITAIN, BUT WHEN BRITISH ACTORS AND TECHNICIANS BOYCOTTED THE PRODUCTION AND MISS KEELER GAVE UP HER PART, THE PRODUCTION UNIT MOVED TO DENMARK.
