Henry Kenneth Alfred "Ken" Russell (3 July 1927 – 27 November
2011) was an English film director, known for his pioneering
work in television and film and for his flamboyant and controversial
style. Critics have accused him of being obsessed with sexuality and
the Catholic Church. His films in the main were liberal adaptations
of existing texts, or biographies, notably of composers of the
Romantic era. Russell began directing for the BBC, where he made
creative adaptations of composers' lives which were unusual for the
time. He also directed many feature films independently and for
He is best known for his Oscar-winning films
Women in Love
Women in Love (1969), The
Devils (1971), The Who's Tommy (1975), and the science fiction film
Altered States (1980). Russell also directed several films based on
the lives of classical music composers, such as Elgar, Delius,
Tchaikovsky, Mahler, and Liszt.
Film critic Mark Kermode, speaking in 2006, and attempting to sum up
the director's achievement, called Russell, "somebody who proved that
British cinema didn't have to be about kitchen-sink realism—it could
be every bit as flamboyant as Fellini. Later in his life he turned to
making low-budget experimental films such as Lion's Mouth and Revenge
of the Elephant Man, and they are as edgy and 'out there' as ever".

Russell was born in Southampton, England, on 3 July 1927, the elder
of two sons of Ethel (née Smith) and Henry Russell, a shoeshop
owner. His father was distant and took out his rage on his family,
so Russell spent much of his time at the cinema with his mother, who
was mentally ill. He cited
Die Nibelungen and The Secret of the
Loch as two early influences.
He was educated at private schools in
Walthamstow and at Pangbourne
College, and studied photography at
Walthamstow Technical College (now
part of the University of East London). He harboured a childhood
ambition to be a ballet dancer but instead joined the Royal Air Force
Merchant Navy as a teenager. On one occasion he was made to
stand watch in the blazing sun for hours on end while crossing the
Pacific. His lunatic captain feared an attack by Japanese midget
submarines despite the war having ended. He moved into television work
after short careers in dance and photography.
His series of documentary 'Teddy Girl' photographs were published in
Picture Post magazine in 1955, and he continued to work as a freelance
documentary photographer until 1959. After 1959, Russell's amateur
films (his documentaries for the
Free Cinema movement, and his 1958
short Amelia and the Angel) secured him a job at the BBC.
Between 1959 and 1970, Russell directed art documentaries for Monitor
and Omnibus. His best known works during this period include: Elgar
(1962), The Debussy Film (1965), Isadora Duncan, the Biggest Dancer in
the World (1967),
Song of Summer
Song of Summer (about
Frederick Delius and Eric
Fenby, 1968) and Dance of the Seven Veils (1970), a film about Richard
Strauss. He once said that the best film he ever made was Song of
Summer, and that he would not edit a single shot.
Elgar was the first time that a televised arts programme (Monitor)
broadcast a feature-length film about an artistic figure, rather than
a series of shorter segments. It was also the first time that
re-enactments were used. Russell fought with the
BBC over using actors
to portray different ages of the same character, instead of the
traditional photograph stills and documentary footage.
His television films became increasingly flamboyant and outrageous.
Dance of the Seven Veils sought to portray
Richard Strauss as a Nazi:
one scene in particular showed a Jewish man being tortured while a
group of SS men look on in delight, with Strauss's music as the score.
The Strauss family was so outraged by the film that they withdrew all
music rights. The film is effectively banned from being screened until
Strauss's copyright expires in 2019.
Russell's next film after
Altered States was The Planets, about Gustav
Holst's musical suite of the same name. This 53-minute film was made
in 1983 specially for The South Bank Show, the weekly arts programme
of the ITV network in Britain. It is a wordless collage that matches
stock footage to each of the seven movements of the Holst suite. John
Coulthart wrote "familiar Russell obsessions appear: Nazis, naked
women and the inevitable crucifixion." After essentially
disappearing for decades, in 2016 the film was re-released on
Russell's first feature film was French Dressing (1964), a comedy
loosely based on Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman; its critical and
commercial failure sent Russell back to the BBC. One of his films
there, in 1965, was Always on Sunday, a bio-pic of the late 19th
century French naive painter
Henri Rousseau (known as Le Douanier).
This was followed by Dante's Inferno about the painter and poet Dante
Gabriel Rossetti and his tortuous relationship with his wife
Elizabeth. His second major commercial film was Billion Dollar Brain
(1967), starring Michael Caine, based on author Len Deighton's Harry
Palmer spy cycle.
In 1969, Russell directed what is considered his "signature film",
Women In Love, an adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's novel of the same
name about two artist sisters living in post-
World War I
World War I Britain. The
film starred Glenda Jackson, Oliver Reed,
Jennie Linden and Alan
Bates. The film is notable for its nude wrestling scene, which broke
the convention at the time that a mainstream movie could not show male
Women in Love
Women in Love connected with the sexual revolution and
bohemian politics of the late 1960s. It received several Oscar
nominations, including his only nomination for Best Director. The
film was BAFTA-nominated for the costume designs of Russell's first
wife, Shirley; they collaborated throughout the 1970s. The colour
schemes of Luciana Arrighi's art direction (also BAFTA-nominated) and
Billy William's cinematography, which Russell used for metaphorical
effect, are also often referred to by film textbooks.
Women in Love
Women in Love with a string of innovative adult-themed
films which were often as controversial as they were successful. The
Music Lovers (1970), a biopic of Tchaikovsky, starred Richard
Chamberlain as a flamboyant Tchaikovsky and
Glenda Jackson as his
wife. The score was conducted by André Previn.
The following year, Russell released The Devils, a film so
controversial that the producers
Warner Bros. refused to release it
uncut. Inspired by Aldous Huxley's book
The Devils of Loudun and
using material from John Whiting's play The Devils, it starred Oliver
Reed as a priest who stands in the way of a corrupt church and state.
Helped by publicity over the more sensational scenes, featuring
sexuality among nuns, the film topped British box office receipts for
eight weeks. In the United States, the film, which had already been
cut for distribution in Britain, was further edited but never widely
released theatrically in anything like its original state; the
original, uncut version has only been shown in the U.S. at film
festivals and art houses.
In 2017, AMC Networks-owned horror film streaming service Shudder
premiered the uncut version of the film for the first time on
British film critic Alexander Walker described the film as
"monstrously indecent" in a television confrontation with Russell,
leading the director to hit him with a rolled up copy of the Evening
Standard, the newspaper for which Walker worked. The uncut version
of the film remains censored.
Russell followed The Devils with a reworking of the period musical The
Boy Friend (1971), for which he cast the model Twiggy, who won two
Golden Globe Awards
Golden Globe Awards for her performance: one for Best Actress in a
musical comedy, and one for the best newcomer. The film was heavily
cut and shorn of two musical numbers for its American release; it was
not a big success.
Russell himself provided most of the financing for Savage Messiah,
released in 1972. The film is a biopic of the painter and sculptor
Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, who died fighting for France at age 23, in
1915, in the trenches during the First World War was The film stars
Dorothy Tutin, Scott Antony, and Helen Mirren.
In 1974, Russell worked with
David Puttnam on Mahler, widely regarded
as one of his best pieces of work.
In 1975, Russell's star-studded film version of The Who's rock opera
Tommy starring Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed, Elton John,
Eric Clapton and Jack Nicholson, spent a record fourteen
weeks at the No.1 spot and played to full houses for over a year.
Two months before Tommy was released (in March 1975), Russell started
work on Lisztomania (1975), another vehicle for Roger Daltrey, and for
the film scoring of progressive rock keyboardist Rick Wakeman. In
the film, the music of
Franz Liszt is stolen by Richard Wagner.
Wagner's operas then put forward the theme of the Superman.Tommy and
Lisztomania were important in the rise of improved motion picture
sound in the 1970s, as they were among the first films to be released
with Dolby-encoded soundtracks. Lisztomania, tagged as "the film that
out-Tommys 'Tommy'", topped the British box-office for two weeks in
November 1975, when Tommy was still in the list of the week's top five
Russell's next film, the 1977 biopic Valentino, starring Rudolf
Nureyev, also topped the British box-office for two weeks, but was not
a hit in America.
Russell's 1980 effort
Altered States was a departure in both genre and
tone, in that it is Russell's only foray into science fiction. Working
from Paddy Chayefsky's screenplay (based upon his novel), Russell used
his penchant for elaborate visual effects to translate Chayefsky's
hallucinatory story to the cinema, and took the opportunity to add his
trademark religious and sexual imagery. The film had an innovative
Oscar-nominated score by John Corigliano. The film enjoyed moderate
financial success, and scored with critics who had otherwise dismissed
Russell's work. Roger Ebert, who had given The Devils "zero stars",
and had panned Russell's early composer portraits (he did, however,
give three stars to both Tommy and Lisztomania), gave it his highest
rating for Russell's work (three-and-a-half stars), praising it as
"one hell of a movie!"
Russell's behaviour on set, including a row with Chayefsky himself,
caused him to become a virtual pariah in Hollywood. Beyond this,
Russell's last American film, Crimes of Passion (1984), with Anthony
Perkins and Kathleen Turner, had moderate critical success but did not
perform at the box office.
After taking a break from film to direct opera, Russell found
financing with various independent companies. During this period he
directed Gothic (1986) with Gabriel Byrne, about the night Mary
Shelley told the tale of Frankenstein, and The Lair of the White Worm
Amanda Donohoe and Hugh Grant, based on a novella by Bram
1988 saw the release of Salome's Last Dance, a loosely adapted
esoteric tribute to Oscar Wilde's controversial play Salome, which was
banned on the 19th century
London stage. The cult movie defines
Russell's adult themed romance with the Theatre of The Poor and was
also notable for the screen presence of Imogen Millais-Scott as
Russell finished the 1980s with The Rainbow, another D. H. Lawrence
adaptation, which also happens to be the prequel to Women in Love.
Glenda Jackson played the mother of her character in the previous
In the 1990 film The Russia House, starring
Sean Connery and Michelle
Pfeiffer, Russell made one of his first significant acting
appearances, portraying Walter, an ambiguously gay British
intelligence officer who discomfits his more strait-laced CIA
counterparts. Russell henceforth occasionally acted.
The 1991 film
Prisoner of Honor
Prisoner of Honor allowed Russell a further opportunity
to explore his abiding interest in anti-Semitism through a
factually-based account of the
Dreyfus Affair in France. The movie
Richard Dreyfuss in the central role of Colonel Georges
Picquart, the French army investigator who exposed the army
establishment's framing of the Jewish officer Captain Alfred Dreyfus.
In 1991, Russell directed his final film of any note, Whore. It was
highly controversial and branded with an
NC-17 rating for its sexual
content. The MPAA and the theatre chains also refused to release
posters or advertise a film called Whore, so for this purpose the film
was re-titled "If You Can't Say It, Just See It". Russell protested
his film being given such a rating when
Pretty Woman got an R, on the
grounds that his film showed the real hardships of being a prostitute,
and the other glorified it.
Return to television
By the early 1990s, Russell had become a celebrity: his notoriety and
persona attracted more attention than his recent work. He became
largely reliant on his own finances to continue making films. Much of
his work after 1990 was commissioned for television (e.g. his 1993 TV
film The Mystery of Dr Martinu), and he contributed regularly to The
South Bank Show including documentaries such as 'Classic Widows' about
the widows of four leading British composers; dance sections in these
were choreographed by Amir Hosseinpour.
Prisoner of Honor
Prisoner of Honor (1991) was Russell's final work with Oliver Reed.
His final film with
Glenda Jackson before she gave up acting for
politics was The Secret Life of Arnold Bax (1992); this TV film was
also his last composer biopic.
In May 1995, he was honoured with a retrospective of his work
presented in Hollywood by the American Cinematheque. Titled
Shock Value, it included some of Russell's most successful and
controversial films and also several of his early
Russell attended the festival and engaged in lengthy post-screening
discussions of each film with audiences and moderator Martin
Lewis, who had instigated and curated the retrospective.
Russell had a cameo in the 2006 film adaptation of Brian Aldiss's
Brothers of the Head
Brothers of the Head by the directors of Lost in La Mancha. He
also had a cameo in the 2006 Colour Me Kubrick. He directed a segment
for the horror anthology
Trapped Ashes (2007) which also includes
segments directed by Sean S. Cunningham, Monte Hellman, and Joe Dante.
Prior to his death in 2011 he was reputed to be in pre-production for
two films: The Pearl of the Orient and Kings X.
Efforts such as The Lion's Mouth (2000) and The Fall of the Louse of
Usher (2002) have suffered from low production values (for example,
being shot in video on Russell's estate, often featuring Russell
himself) and limited distribution.
In 2003 he was a member of the jury at the 25th Moscow International
Film Festival. He also acted in "Final Cut", an episode of the BBC
television series Waking the Dead, playing the role of an aging
director of a notorious 1960s crime drama similar to Performance.
From 2004, Russell was visiting professor at the University of Wales,
Newport Film School. One of his many tasks was to advise students on
the making of their graduate films. He also presented the Finest Film
Awards (for graduate filmmakers of Newport) in June 2005.
Russell was appointed visiting fellow at the University of Southampton
in April 2007, where he acted in a similar capacity to his role at the
Newport Film School, until March 2008. His arrival was celebrated with
a screening of the rare director's cut of The Devils hosted by Mark
He began production of his first full-length film in almost 5 years,
Moll Flanders, an adaptation of Daniel Defoe's novel, starring Lucinda
Rhodes-Flaherty and Barry Humphries, but a finished film failed to
Also in 2007 Russell produced A Kitten for Hitler, a short film hosted
by the Comedybox.tv website. Russell commented that "Ten years ago,
while working on The South Bank Show,
Melvyn Bragg and I had a heated
discussion on the pros and cons of film censorship. Broadly speaking,
Melvyn was against it, while I, much to his surprise, was absolutely
for it. He then dared me to write a script that I thought should be
banned. I accepted the challenge and a month or so later sent him a
short subject entitled A Kitten for Hitler. 'Ken,' he said, 'if ever
you make this film and it is shown, you will be lynched.' "
Russell joined Celebrity Big Brother in January 2007, at the start of
the series, but left voluntarily within a week after an altercation
with Jade Goody.
Ken Russell and his wife Lisi Tribble were invited by New York film
Shade Rupe on a six-week journey across North America,
beginning with a Lifetime Achievement Award given by Mitch Davis at
the Fantasia film festival on 20 July 2010, followed by a screening of
Russell's most notorious film, The Devils. The next day, a near
complete 35mm print retrospective of Russell's work at the
Cinémathèque Québécoise including Billion Dollar Brain, Women in
Love, The Music Lovers, Crimes of Passion, The Rainbow, Whore, and
many more found projection along with an exhibition of several of
Russell's photographs from the 1950s. The next stop was Russellmania!
at Lincoln Center, a nine-film overview of Russell's work from Women
in Love through Valentino, with Russell present at each evening
screening for a nearly sold-out weeklong festival. 30 July 2010,
opening night, Russell was joined by
Vanessa Redgrave for a 40th
anniversary screening of The Devils and the next evening saw The Music
Women in Love
Women in Love projected with Ken in attendance. Tommy Tune
joined Russell the next evening for The Boy Friend and followed the
screening with a live stage dance number from the film.
American Cinematheque in Los Angeles next hosted Mr. Russell at
the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica with screenings of The Devils and
Altered States with
Charles Haid and
Stuart Baird in attendance, and
Tommy and Lisztomania at the Egyptian the following evening. Director
Mick Garris extended an invitation and Russell, Tribble, and Rupe
Masters of Horror for one of their rarified dinners. The
tour wrapped up in Toronto at the
Rue Morgue Festival of Fear and a
packed screening of The Devils at the
Bloor Cinema hosted by Richard
In 1985, he directed Gounod's Faust at the Vienna State Opera,
conducted by Erich Binder with Francisco Araiza, Ruggero Raimondi and
Gabriela Beňačková in the main roles.
In 2008, he made his New York directorial debut with the Off-Broadway
production of Mindgame at the SoHo Playhouse produced by Monica
Tidwell, a thriller by Anthony Horowitz and starring Keith Carradine,
Lee Godart and Kathleen McNenny.

Besides books on film-making and the British film industry, Russell
also wrote A British Picture: An Autobiography (1989; published in the
US as Altered States: The Autobiography of Ken Russell, 1991). He also
published six novels, including four on the sex lives of composers –
Beethoven Confidential, Brahms Gets Laid, Elgar: The Erotic
Variations, and Delius: A Moment with Venus.
Mike and Gaby's Space Gospel is a science-fiction rewriting of
Genesis. His last novel, also science-fiction and published in 2006,
is called Violation. It is a very violent future-shock tale of an
England where football has become the national religion.
At the time of his death, he had a column for
The Times in the Film
section of times 2.
Before achieving success in the film industry, Russell enjoyed a brief
fling with still photography. An exhibition displaying some of
Russell's work was on display during the summer of 2007 in central
London's Proud Galleries in The Strand, London. The exhibition,
entitled Ken Russell's Lost
London Rediscovered: 1951–1957, included
photos taken in and around London, with many of the pictures being
taken in the
Portobello Road area of London. An exhibition Ken
Russell: Filmmaker, Photographer ran at several galleries in 2010.
In the late-1980s, Russell directed the music video for "It's All
Coming Back to Me Now", a song written and produced by Jim Steinman
for his Pandora's Box project. The production featured a range of
erotic imagery, including studded bras and spiked codpieces.
He'd also directed Elton John's video for "Nikita" which featured a
bit of John wearing the same boots he wore as the Pinball Wizard in
the film adaptation of The Who's Tommy.
Russell converted to Roman Catholicism during the 1950s.
He was married four times. His first marriage, to costume designer
Shirley Kingdon from 1958 to 1978, produced four sons and a daughter.
He was married to Vivian Jolly from 1984 to 1991 (the wedding
celebrant being Anthony Perkins, who had been ordained in the
Universal Life Church); the couple had a son and daughter. He was
married to the actress and former ballerina
Hetty Baynes from 1992 to
1997; the couple had a son. His first three marriages ended in
divorce. He married Elize Tribble in 2001, and the marriage lasted
until his death.
Ken Russell died on 27 November 2011 at the age of 84 having suffered
a series of strokes. His last three wives and all eight of his
children survived him. Upon his death he left his entire estate to his
fourth wife, Lisi Tribble.
