Joachim Joesten’s Der fall Profumo is a true account of the Profumo sex scandal that rocked Britain’s conservative government in 1963, eventually bringing about the resignation of Secretary of State for War John Profumo. The book was translated from the original German into Dutch by J. P. M. van Elswijk for Dutch publishers De Kennemer and made into what you see above, and newly titled Christine Keeler.
