George Lazenby Had Charles Manson Near-miss


GEORGE LAZENBY Sharon Tate Jill St. John

The Bond star was dating actress Jill St. John at the time, when the couple was invited to a social gathering at screen star Sharon Tate's home in Los Angeles by a mutual friend.

However, the pal never showed up to drive the couple to the party and Lazenby was left disappointed at the snub - but his annoyance turned to shock when he learned the next day that Tate and four others at the property had been stabbed to death by devotees of cult leader Manson.

Lazenby tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "(My friend) never showed to pick us up. That was the night Sharon and her friends were murdered by Charles Manson's gang. I guess I just wasn't meant to be there."

Her sister Debra has now revived Tate's legacy by gathering friends, including her Valley of the Dolls co-star Patty Duke, Joan Collins and Jane Fonda to share their memories of the actress in Sharon Tate: Recollection, and Polanski was handed the honour of writing the foreword.

Sharon Tate

Actress Sharon Tate's murderer SUSAN ATKINS has died from brain cancer in a California prison, just weeks after she was rejected parole.

Atkins, a member of Charles Manson's notorious cult, died at the age of 61 at Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla, while serving a life sentence for eight counts of murder.

Four of the actress' friends, who were visiting her at the time, were also murdered.

Tate's family and the relatives of the other victims of the cult, led by Charles Manson, are expected to testify against her release.

Valley Of The Dolls Review


Good
Of all the camp classics available for your derision and laughter, Valley of the Dolls is surely one of the campiest, the kind of movie whose promotional stills are reproduced on T-shirts for sale in your finer gay gift shops, the kind of movie that has close to 30 memorable quotes listed online, the kind of movie so delightfully absurd that even Roger Ebert (of all people) was moved to pen an even more campy farce of a sequel.

A lurid '60s sensation about three young women who come New York to make it on big, bad Broadway, Jacqueline Susann's steamy bestseller was rushed to Hollywood and put on the screen fast. The result is one of those unwatchable/irresistible messes that's even more fun once you memorize the dialog and sing along with the musical numbers.

Farrow Fears Omen Curse


Mia Farrow The Omen Woody Allen Roman Polanski Sidney Blackmer Sharon Tate Charles Manson

Actress Mia Farrow was terrified during filming for the remake of 1960s horror film The Omen, because of the 'curse' that struck her co-stars on another satanic film, ROSEMARY'S BABY. Woody Allen's ex admits the film reminded her of the 1968 Roman Polanski movie and the horrendous events that occurred afterwards - star Sidney Blackmer and Polanksi's wife Sharon Tate died within a few years of the film's release. Farrow says, "I remember the scene where people were toasting Satan and dear old SIDNEY BLACKMER (who played Satanist ROMAN CASTEVET), saying, 'This isn't good, this is very bad luck.' "Sure enough, the next year Sidney was blind and then he died. There were many deaths. Roman's beautiful wife Sharon". Polanski's pregnant wife Sharon was murdered by serial killer Charles Manson's followers in August 1969.

The Fearless Vampire Killers Review


Good
Even when he's at his most serious (The Pianist), his most stately (Tess), his most gruesome (Macbeth), Roman Polanski is a director with a keen, sardonic black wit. The "real" world, for Polanski, is one in which you might find human teeth embedded in the walls, where the neighbors might happen to be Satanists, where Donald Pleasance appears in drag. It's scary, but for Polanski (who lived through unimaginable horrors himself), it's blackly funny, too. And if the material is ostensibly quite heavy, as it is in The Pianist, so much the better. Weren't Nazis a kind of monster after all? How absurd was their rise to power? And how absurd the situations in which his protagonist found himself obliged to live?

Still, there are few declared comedies in Polanski's filmography. The best of these, 1967's The Fearless Vampire Killers (known outside the U.S. as Dance of the Vampires, and the basis of a recent, successful, European stage musical), is newly available on DVD.
