In 1963 Lewis Morley took one of the world’s most famous photographs of an almost nude Christine Keeler astride a copy of an Arne Jacobsen chair at the height of the Profumo scandal. “Since its first appearance, without a credit, in the Sunday Mirror in June 1963,…[the Keeler photograph] has come to embody the sexual permissiveness and freedom of the 1960s and has been one of the world’s most re-enacted images. Morley himself restaged it with…[the encouragement of the sitters] such as David Frost, Edina Ronay, Joe Orton and Dame Edna Everage.”

David Frost was “an English television host, media personality, journalist, comedian, and writer [who] became known for his television interviews with senior political figures, among them the Nixon Interviews with former US President Richard Nixon in 1977.” Ref: The Guardian, 13.9.2013; Wiki.
