Altitude, Alcohol & Adultery
ALTITUDE, ALCOHOL & ADULTERY tells the true story of the decadent lifestyle of the British Aristocracy in Kenya, a country whose landscape and eccentric characters have fascinated writers from Fitzgerald and Hemingway to Karen Blixen.
This story was first brought to world attention in 1941 when Lord Erroll, the first in line to the throne of Scotland after the Royal Family, was found murdered at a crossroad outside Nairobi.
Lord Erroll had recently begun a very public affair with the beautiful Diana Broughton, new wife to the extremely wealthy Sir Jock Delves; later arrested for his murder. The sensational trial that followed drew reporters from around the world and revealed the shocking, decadent lifestyles of the British Aristocracy living in the mythical “Happy Valley”. Set free from their ancestral duties, a charming group of aristocrats had established a party lifestyle that maintained the single pursuit of pleasure in the excessive use of alcohol, drugs and sex.
ALTITUDE, ALCOHOL & ADULTERY uncovers the truth about this famous scandal that shocked war-torn Britain first brought to light by the British feature film, WHITE MISCHIEF.
