Here we see the benevolent, unknown side of Robert Maxwell. He was a surrogate father to Eleanor on a platonic basis. He saved her life by charging into an operating theatre (not scrubbed up) and shouting, "Turn that fucking machine off!" He was referring to the deadly E.C.T (electroconvulsive therapy) now banned, which she did not need. Maxwell was always kind and generous to Eleanor although he and her Michael, who owned The Daily Telegraph and The Sunday Telegraph, were very jealous of each other. Eleanor is proud to have been his friend. The Gutter press have only informed us about Maxwell's faults. Shortage of Oxygen to his brain in later life destroyed his thinking process and caused him to be autocratic and irritable. It was then that the Mirror pensions funds `Scandal' took place. He was no longer capable and it was thought to be the "bankers" who transferred the funds, adversely affecting the pensioners. Due to this impoverished childhood, Maxwell was incapable of robbing the poor. He had saint-like qualities, before his mental decline and was an exceptionally courageous war hero.
