Call girl Christine Keeler lived here, scandalous Profumo affair

Location: 63 Great Cumberland Place, London, W1H 7LJ

Description: Call girl Christine Keeler lived here, from where she was simultanously having affairs with John Profumo, Macmillans Secretary of State for War, and the the Soviet naval attache, Yevgeny Ivanov.

At the height of The Profumo Affair in 1963, Keeler sat for a portrait which became one of the iconic images of the 20th century. The photoshoot with Lewis Morley was to promote a film that was never distributed. Keeler had unwisely signed a contract which required her to pose naked for publicity photos. Keeler was reluctant to continue, but the film producers insisted, so Morley persuaded Keeler to sit astride a bentwood chair such that whilst technically she would be naked, the back of the chair would obscure most of her body.
