Earl Felton

Recommended Posts

In her autobiography, The Truth at Last (2001) Christine Keeler argues that she met Earl Fenton, a CIA agent who posed as a film scriptwriter at a New Year party. The following month Fenton contacted Keeler. According to her account: "Stephen had been telling him lies, feeding him false information and indicating that I was spying for the Russians because of my love for Eugene. The message was to leave the country, say nothing about anything I might have seen or heard."

Mandy Rice-Davies told me the other day on the telephone that Keeler had got his name wrong in her autobiography and he was actually Earl Felton not Earl Fenton. This enabled me to find out that Felton was a fairly successful figure in Hollywood and was the screenwriter of 38 films.

In 1962 a FBI memo written by J. Edgar Hoover stated that Felton had taken part in sex orgies that involved Christine Keeler, Mandy Rice-Davies, Mariella Novotny, Douglas Fairbanks, Lord Astor, Eugene Ivanov, John Profumo and Stephen Ward.

I also discovered that he committed suicide (or was suicided) on 2nd May 1972.

Would be interested if anyone else had information on Earl Felton.
