The Rattenbury murder - a national scandal in the summer of 1935 - remained one of the 20th century's most celebrated and poignant crimes of passion. Francis Rattenbury, a distinguished Canadian architect who doted on his wife Alma, had on retirement brought her to live in Bournemouth, where after a few besotted years he found he had lost interest in her. She then fell in love with their young chauffeur, Percy Stoner, and he or she killed Rattenbury.
