I’ve don’t some things with the gallery for now. It’s back up and ready to view.
Well ya had to go and make me do it. It’s obvious some people can’t read. I’ve had to take the gallery offline because one person has violated the terms of using the gallery. I explicitly stated that if you were going to view the gallery and remove photos, a simple credit back to the site would be a nice gesture to show that you appreciate the work I’ve put into the site. However, someone has gone and posted photos elsewhere without crediting back to the site. The gallery will remain offline until I can install what I need to protect the work I’ve done. I’m sorry to have to do this but like I said in the “fine print” section riiiiiight up at the top before you can begin browsing….. I stated that while the photos, clippings, magazine articles, screencaps and such are not mine, it has taken a hell of a lot of time and money to collect what I do have. Like I said it’s been since 1976 when I first read Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry’s book Helter Skelter. It was at that point that I began the journey that has let to this site. Since 1976! I’m only asking for some courtesy in terms of one simple thing like “Photos from http://tate-polanski.com”. That’s it, that’s all. This site is not like a social media page where you can just post willy nilly. This site has been at least two years in the design, but forty-one years to the fruition of a dream. So like I said, the gallery is offline for now. I was going to say that I was sorry to have to do this, but I’m not. Really. I was explicit in what I said in the Welcome part of the gallery. Someone has obviously not read it.
A Word About The Gallery
Welcome to the gallery of TATE-POLANSKI.COM a longtime dream of mine to bring together a collection of images, magazine scans, clippings, screencaptures, and other things I’ve collected ever since 1976 on Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski. Included here is a labour of love, time and money I’ve spent bringing this archive together. An archive on the lives and careers of Sharon and Roman, and by extension Roman’s present wife Emmanuelle Seigner, and their children actress Morgane Polanski, and where possible Elvis Polanski, their son. My intent is to make this a clearing house of sorts of Sharon and Roman’s careers, including the murders of Sharon, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Voytek Frykowski, Steven Parent, Leno LaBianca, and Rosemary LaBianca. I am also including here Roman’s 1977 case and the various documents to do with both cases to be linked to the pages within the site. So here is the fine print: While I do understand there are some who would like to use the photos for fanart, please understand you are not allowed to take things from this gallery and repost elsewhere and call it your own. I have provided a convenient copy and paste BB code for most message boards under the photo/article and such. Please use that to repost and then credit back to this site using the url www.tate-polanski.com or tate-polanski.com. It’s only fair. A lot of the materials included here are not available anywhere else and I’d like to keep this site exclusive for this content. If you do have anything like an article, some clippings, images, fanart, et al that you would like to contribute, please use the form on the DONATE or you can send it directly to me via Email. Thank you for visiting and for understanding that while the photos, articles, clippings and such are not mine, it has taken some time, decades in fact to collect everything here. That is including the fact that I have also created a custom layout for the site. All I ask is for a bit of courtosey in terms of credit. I do have a way to recognize where these materials came from. Please do not hotlink. For an explanation of what that means, check out the FAQ section. Please do not force me to have to take drastic steps to limit your enjoyment of this site by either taking the gallery offline and forcing a registration to view, or to impliment an anti-theft device that will guarantee you won’t be able to do so.

A bunch of photos of Sharon and Roman from 1968. Hard to believe that Sharon had less than two years to live. These photos are all dated pretty much the same way as unfortunately, I don’t have actual dates other than when they were archived by the source. Included is a set of Roman and Sharon on a staircase either in their Mews House in London, or at a club and are pictured with Sharon’s former fiance Jay Sebring. Jay would loose his life along with Sharon on 09 August 1969. All in all Roman and Sharon look the epitome of the 60s couple, and Sharon never looked lovelier.
These images are from 1967 where Sharon visited Roman on the set of ROSEMARY’S BABY in New York. She and Roman can be seen walking the streets of the city.
The first official upload is from 1959, a photo essay with a then twenty-six year old Roman Polanski with his first wife Barbara Kwiatkowska-Lass. Here Roman and Barbara do some post-Christmas shopping in Paris. The assignment was for Paris-Match and featured Barbara, not Roman. Roman and Barbara were married for three years before divorcing in 1962.
We finally have a layout I’m happy with. I think it looks amazing. I’m also in the process of trying to figure out how to arrange the gallery, and getting some articles up in the press section. I am thinking that I’m going to post as I build, sort of as I add things to the gallery it’ll be documented here. That way I can actually build the site’s content as well. I’ve also decided to put out feelers to anyone who would like to contribute to the site in terms of creating biographies for each of the principles, I’d love to have your input. I also want biographies for those who were killed alongside Sharon on that night in August 1969. So for anyone wishing to do that, check out the sidebar under the Projects section. Please submit your work there by clicking on the photo. I’m also in the process of getting the legal section up that will include things on the murders as well as Roman’s 1977 case that will contain the truth of what happened, not the over-glorified soundbite lies the media have furnished. So that’s it for right now. Please keep an eye on this space for further updates.
Hello and welcome to TATE-POLANSKI ONLINE @ tate-polanski.com a website dedicated to film director Roman Polanski, slain American actress Sharon Tate, French actress and singer Emmanuelle Seigner, and French actress Morgane Polanski. It is my hope to bring to you all the news on Roman, Emmanuelle and Morgane’s careers as well as updates as to the parole hearings and other news regarding the late Sharon Tate and those who murdered her and her unborn son and friends. This is not a gossip site and will not be someplace for Roman Polanski’s haters to come and spew about his 1977 legal case, nor is this a place for Charles Manson supporters to come and spread their lies about the man or to support those who murdered Sharon, Voytek Frykowski, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, Steven Parent, Leno LaBianca and Rosemary LaBianca. Please click on the menu link to the About page to read up on what is allowed here and to find out the long ranging aims of this site. There is so much that still needs to be done with the site, and things might be a little slow in getting into the gallery and the main site, but I’m hoping to get these things done in a timely manner. The press section still needs to be put up as well as the forum needs some work. If you’re a fan of these four, please feel free to come back often to see the many updates to the site, as well as the latest news on their careers and such. I hope you enjoy your stay and enjoy your time. Thank you for your interest.
