HENRY KENNETH ALFRED "KEN" RUSSELL (1927–2011) was an English film director and author, best known for his Oscar winning film Women in Love (1969), and for his pioneering work in film and television. He courted controversy with his films for the recurrent themes of sexuality and the church.
His films in the main were liberal adaptations of existing texts, or biographies, notably of composers of the Romantic era. In addition to Women in Love he directed The Devils (1971), The Who's Tommy (1975), and the science fiction film Altered States (1980). Russell also directed several films and wrote two novels based on the lives of classical music composers, such as Elgar, Delius, Tchaikovsky, Mahler and Liszt.
