Movie lines are one thing.

Name the person in the picture if you can.

Famous person and she is not my girlfriend.

You can't google a picture unless you know who you are looking for.

Hint:- British Model at one time.

The image of Christine I always remember is the one sitting astride the chair.
It became quite iconic !

Can anyone name this guy? I hope not, because I share his last name! And no, I'm not related... I hope.

Well spotted. However, I did know that. I have often quoted Miss Rice-Davies, when listening to a politician who is making a self justifying statement... "Well he would (say that) wouldn't he?"

And as far as the Christine pix sitting astride the chair is concerned, that deeply engraved itself on my male psyche at the time. Whooaaarrrrrr! And no naughty bits in sight.

Never realized Christine Keeler was so gorgeous, no wonder there was so much scandal at the time, I remember it but all the pictures I saw of her she seemed almost dowdy.

That's it (I mean 'her', not 'it'). Amazing isn't it that it seemed such a salacious pix at the time?

Why we don't have a public holiday or at least a named day in her honour is beyond me. She got more MP's out than Guy Fawkes managed.

Now I know you guys hardly gave the chair itself a glance - too much distraction, naturally - but it was actually quite a famous design.
Nowadays they sell for big bikkies if you can find one.
I only wish I could remember the designer's name.
But it is Frday night...

Even in Dunedin, it only "used to be" Friday. Alas, those days are gone - it's Saturday already.

Result of a Google is

The heading of this blog is a quote from Arne Jacobsen, Danish architect and designer. You may have heard of him. He is responsible for the Series 7 chair, a chair that has sold over 5 million copies, the chair Christine Keeler sat on for Lewis Morley’s iconic sixties photograph.

Is it Field Marshall Irwin Rommel around 1917?

And from Wikipedia -

At the time, Morley and Keeler were already famous, but the photo propelled the Arne Jacobsen model 3107 chair to stardom. However, the actual chair used was an imitation, with a hand-hold aperture cut out of the back to avoid making it an exact and infringing copy.

The chair looks to be copied from a VW beetle bonnet

OK, his name is Mark Hobson. He's quite obscure, but I thought someone might recognize him.
