when a great 'crime and comedy' took place at the Savoy Hotel.
A French courtesan with a whopper past shot and killed her husband,
an Egyptian playboy of vast wealth. Lawyer-journalist Andrew Rose-
exercising discretion - details the crime and what was going on during
the couple's romantic bouts (or not) that led to the fatal shooting.
"He made me do..things," Madame wept. She made people forget that she
had a past in which she "did" a lot of things. When the case moved to
trial at Old Bailey -- she got off scot free. This tense 'scandal of the
decade' centered on racism and a jury that wanted to believe anything
that smacked of the 'disgusting' from an Egyptian. Summing up,
her lawyer said, "Her greatest mistake" as a Western woman "was to marry
an Oriental.." Madame lived on for years. A corker of a story.
