Synopsis: An English bon-vivant osteopath is enchanted with a young exotic dancer and invites her to live with him. He serves as friend and mentor, and through his contacts and parties she and her friend meet and date members of the Conservative Party. Eventually a scandal occurs when her affair with the Minister of War goes public, threatening their lifestyles and their freedom. Based on the real Profumo scandal of 1963.


Review: A classic story of how extra marital relationships can upend one’s political career (read The Honey Trap, 1988). This story is based on the real Russian ties in British society and especially the House of Windsor. “Scandal” (1989) is a just snapshot into the breathtaking story of of Stirling Henry Nahum’s photo album with pictures of of Royal family members involved in the Thursday club. This movie gives some hints to understanding sexual background of current political figures and possibly explains some mystery deaths around the Crown, for example, the Russian oligarch Berezovsky. It is fantastic how events in the past shed a light on events in the present.
