London in the 1950s & 60s was changing, the media said it was becoming 'Swinging London'? In reality new elites were challenging the old establishment.
David Litvinoff was involved with the Chelsea set and the worlds of music, art and crime. It was his contribution to the film Performance that connected the London Underworld to the London Underground, He knew the Krays and he knew the Rolling Stones and he knew a lot of other people.
Litvinoff was one of the mysterious characters that London produced during a time of flux and change. He was a character who it may have been fun to be around, but you wouldn't want him too close.
