So one more has come out of the woodwork with that shill of an ambulance chaser Gloria Allred. As if her destruction of Bill Cosby wasn’t enough, she has to double dip back into Roman’s case. She failed miserably with trotting out Charlotte Lewis, now there’s another liar to say Roman supposedly “assaulted” her. The woman’s name is “RobinM”. So this “Robin” claims she didn’t come forward when the charges were filed against him for the Samantha Geimer incident because of fears that her father might “do something that might cause him to go to prison for the rest of his life.” Well she’s had plenty of time to come out of the woodwork to make her allegations considering how infamous this case is. But she chose to remain in the shadows. Just like many of the Cosby Accusers, she supposedly kept silent because she was “afraid”. Well being afraid isn’t enough. Just like Roman’s attorney Harland Braun, “If you have a position, you come to court and you file it,” he said. “Why have a news conference? … The only purpose is to generate publicity and maybe try to influence a judge.” And I feel this has been orchestrated in order to blur the judgement of the presiding judge over the 1977 case who could possibly end it once and for all. The proximity of these allegations is too coincidental for me.

It is well known that after Sharon’s death and the capture of her killers Roman left California and the United States for Europe. The only times he was back in the United States was in 1973 when he directed his masterpiece CHINATOWN and in 1977 when the events in the Geimer case happened. This woman conveniently picks not the 1977 time frame, but 1973 when he was directing CHINATOWN. Who was this woman? Where did she come from? Where was she in conjunction with Roman’s directing the film? All of these questions she refused to give. That’s not good enough. She needs to be compelled to give more detailed information if she thinks those of us who know of Roman’s case and his character want us to believe her. This is not bullying her, this is requiring her to give her evidence. Notice that due to the events surrounding Lewis’ allegations Allred has chosen to remain silent on that evidence. Then of course there was the nature of Lewis’ statement being disproven by her own words from an interview she gave in 1989, six years after the “traumatic” events of her “ruination” occurred? There is a wonderful article by Robert Harris, author of the book The Ghost Writer in which Harris completely deconstructs Lewis’ tale. You can read it here: A Media Lynch Mob is Bent on Destroying Roman Polanski — by Robert Harris   . This attempt is no different in my eyes. And to anyone who believes the lies fostered by Allred and her floozies, shame on you.

Dare we have hoped that finally Roman would have closure? Dare we have hoped that the United States Legal system would finally be willing to deal fairly with him? Not fucking likely. Sorry for the harsh word but it’s how I feel finding this out. According to many sources his plea for a resolve of his case was denied. Did we expect anything from the California Supreme Courts? Even the higher appellate court sides with Roman and his council in a quick resolve is to sentence in absentia and end it all, however, we all know this isn’t about closing this case, it’s all about the orange jumpsuit with him in shackles and leg irons. So draconian for an 83-year-old film director. Even when Samantha Geimer has constantly requested this case be closed and the charges against Roman be dropped they won’t do it. They won’t do what is right. However, California allowed director John Landis to get away with three counts of murder against actor Vic Morrow and children Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen. No one went to prison for that when there was clear evidence of fault and disgusting behaviour on behalf of the crew and the director. Let’s let them walk but let’s continue to pursue Roman. What threat is he, truly? Clearly none.

Roman Polanski jail plea rejected by US judge

Film-maker Roman Polanski has failed to win assurances from a US court that he will not face prison over a decades-old case involving sex with a minor.

A judge rejected a motion by Polanski’s lawyers who said he was willing to return to the US if he was assured he would not serve more time in jail.

Prosecutors said he should not receive special treatment as a celebrity.

Polanski, now 83, fled the US ahead of sentencing in 1978 after admitting having sex with a girl aged 13.

“Judge (Scott) Gordon has ruled that (the) defendant’s motions and corresponding requests are denied,” a document released on Monday from Los Angeles Superior Court said. The hearing itself took place last month.

Analysis: David Willis, BBC News, Los Angeles

It is the court case that refuses to die. A salacious story, the details of which remain hotly contested some 40 years after they occurred. Here though, once again, a judge has ruled that Roman Polanski cannot seek to litigate the matter from afar and that he must abandon his fugitive status and return to the US from his home in Paris if he is to seek resolution.

Not that the matter ends there. Later this month a hearing will take place in Los Angeles regarding a controversial piece of testimony which the award-winning director and his legal team are seeking to have unsealed. It consists of testimony by the original prosecutor in the case and is thought to contain allegations of misconduct by the trial judge.

Authorities in the US have tried for years to extradite the Oscar-winning director.

Polanski, best known for the films Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby and The Pianist, lives in France and has French and Polish citizenship.

In December, Poland’s Supreme Court rejected a request to have him extradited.


Swiss authorities turned down a US extradition warrant in 2010 after placing Polanski under house arrest for nine months.

Another post for today. Here are the screencaps of Roman’s film CHINATOWN, Here he plays a thug who cuts Jack Nicholson’s nose. I’m not including screencaps from the entire film, but stills, lobby cards, production photos, and posters from the film. The reason I’m not including screencaps from the entire film is due to space allotment on this site. With all the work I still have to get up in the gallery, I need that space for Sharon, Emmanuelle, Morgane and Roman’s other films. I hope you understand.

I wanted to give the heads up that I’m currently working on the Press Section. I’ve added many scanned articles to the gallery and am transcribing as I go. I really won’t be making a post everytime I add something since it’ll be too laborious to have to do so. Please feel free to check the gallery section for the scans and to keep an eye on the press section for the articles being added. So far there’s almost fifty pages to it.

Just like the title says, there is a new documentary or news special to air on 17 March, 2017 about the murders, this according to People Magazine. This special will cover the status of the killers as of today. The show will feature interviews with a lot of the original players including members of The Beach Boys and of course, Debra Tate. I’m not sure who else they’re going to talk to since most of the principles are dead unless they interviewed say Vincent Bugliosi before he died last June. I’m also not sure what they can glean from Debra Tate since she always seems to embellish her role and part in everything. The show will also include never before seen interviews with Manson and the other killers. Here’s hoping it’s good. I’m so tired of seeing the regurgitation of the case with no real new insight. I’ve set up the press section of the site to include the original September 2014 cover article on Sharon. Included will be the scans from the magazine, plus a link to where you can read the article in its entirety without having to shuffle between the pages in the gallery. Just click on the in the link below.

I know there hasn’t been any new updates in a while, and I’m sorry for that. I’ve been busy with another site where information has needed to be updated almost on a daily basis plus I’m setting up a press section over on that site like the one I have here. I’m hoping on the weekend to get to adding more content here. This site is going to be a huge one and I’m reopening the call for any contributors who would like to help out with biographies for the principles like Roman, Sharon, Emmanuelle, Morgane, Jay, Abigail, Voytek, Steven, Leno and Rosemary. So if anyone is interested, please submit your names to the notice in the sidebar. Thanks.

According to Page Six, Roman’s February 24th hearing was been put in hold. There was no reason given for the hold, other than the same requisite buck-passing. It seems Jackie Lacey as well as the State of California don’t seem to want to end this, certainly when they can gain political hay out of it by the delays. I swear they’re waiting till he kicks off. Samantha Geimer has stated that she believes the foot dragging is to yet again, cover their asses. They know what they did in treating Roman differently was wrong, yet they want to continue to make the public believe they were the aggrieved ones. Unbelievable.

Hearing in Roman Polanski case delayed

February 23, 2017

A hearing set for Friday to unseal evidence in the decades’ old Roman Polanski child sex case has been put on ice.

The Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday issued a notice saying that the hearing was nixed, but didn’t explain why. The court also did not provide a new date for the hearing.

Last week, Polanski’s attorney, Harland Braun, filed a motion to unseal the testimony of a former prosecutor who handled the “Chinatown” director’s 1977 criminal case involving sex with a minor.

Polanski has long held that the prosecutor reneged on a deal for him to spend 42 days at Chino State Prison in Chino, Calif.

The 83-year-old completed his stint in the lock-up and underwent psychiatric evaluation — and Braun now wants the court to honor the plea deal.

Polanski was accused of drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl at the home of actor Jack Nicholson on March 10, 1977. He had lured her there on the pretext of photographing her for French Vogue.

The late Judge Laurence Rittenband initially signed off on the plea deal, but had a sudden change of heart and ordered Polanski to spend up to 50 years behind bars.

Polanski fled the United States and has lived in Paris, France, ever since as a fugitive.

In 2009, Polanski was captured while traveling through Zurich, Switzerland. He was jailed for over 300 days as U.S. authorities tried to no avail to extradite him back to the country.

Braun has been working with Los Angeles prosecutors to resolve the case so Polanski can travel freely throughout the world.

Polanski’s victim, Samantha Geimer, said last week she wants the “truth to get out” so the exiled film director can finally walk free.

“I think they should release it. I think the only reason they’re keeping it sealed is to cover up their own misconduct in the DA’s office and in the court,” Geimer told TMZ.

I found the segment of Too Young To Die online and thought I’d post it here for the weekend. The show talked about Sharon’s life with such friends as Gene Gutowski who was a part of the inner circle of Sharon and Roman’s friends. I have to say that I love Gene. Of all their friends Gene has been the most loving when talking about Sharon and Roman’s love and life. The only two downsides of this documentary is Elke Sommer, Sharon’s THE WRECKING CREW co-star and Sharon’s sister, Debra. Elke Sommer’s husband for those who either don’t know, was Joe Hyams. In his autobiography Roman talks of how utterly disappointed he was with Hyams who was a columnist and biographer who wrote a series of disparaging articles on Sharon, Jay, Voytek and Abigail after the murders using such titles as “Why Sharon Tate Had To Die” then chronicled a series of lies that went so far as to blame the victims for their deaths. Roman was not too happy with him, needless to say. I’m not sure why the film company of FilmRise asked her for commentary since she clearly wasn’t a friend of Sharon’s, only a co-star. The next is of course Debra Tate who again likes to lie as to how she met Roman. She claims here that she was the “first” to meet him, however, in the book Restless Souls: The Sharon Tate Family’s Account of Stardom, the Manson Murders, and a Crusade for Justice written by Alisa Statman and Brie Ford (Patti’s daughter), it says that Paul Tate was the first to meet Roman, and didn’t think much of him. If anyone has the correct information, all I have is the epub version of the book and can’t find the relevant passage, please feel free to post a comment with the correction, or if I find it all edit with the relevant section. But Debra once again spins a tale that I don’t know if it’s part wish fulfillment, or a flimsy memory. Who can tell with her anymore.
