Isabelle ADJANI and POLANSKI played together in "The Tenant" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KQhrJB6n0Y), released in May 1976, less than one year before the rape. ADJANI recently said about him : "All directors are tyrants, except with their muse". We can conclude that Sharon was not his muse.
From what I have read, Polanski was as abusive with Sharon on that movie as the director of "Valley of the Dolls" was with her.
That's a crock...public appeal, lol. How many more should be removed??? Like Weinstein saying that he feels Hollywood will forgive him...lol. Really? It wouldn't surprise me. As long as the money is made, it's ok what he did. Unbelievable.

Forgetting Cosby, of course his wife claiming a giant frame up now...
Roman has had this hanging over him since the 70's, and was given an Oscar in the meantime, watch it on youtube, he gets a standing ovation from the crowd, all obviously happy he won, didn't bother the Academy then. Just a publicity ploy to show how their standing up for the women, lol.
Such great posts! I for some reason, don't hate Roman. I normally would loath a person like him. I have read his autobiography and a bio on him. I saw an interview his friend made, it was amazing. I just see that he was a product of his childhood trauma, his European culture and the times. It takes 2 and Sharon knew what he was and decided her love and need for him was greater than a relationship of mutual respect. I'm not excusing him I just think there's more to his behavior. Also I love his movies so maybe I need to feel better about that 😂

Polanksi got booted along with Cosby cuz the "Academy" was afraid of being called "racists" if they only booted Cosby.
Polanski being booted also works for Tarantino too (and his 17 million $ California tax break) and his upcoming movie. His defense of Polanski has already been brought up and then shelved quickly. This works for Tarantino as he can now write off Polanski as a pedo and put him on the Hollyweird "hands off" shelf.
POLANSKI was attending a mini-Festival yesterday in NICE (south of France) to present his last movie - dedicated to the DREYFUS Affair - which got an award during the last Venice International Film Festival. International title : An Officer and a Spy. Here an article in a local newspaper : www.pressreader.com/france/nice-matin-cannes/20191027/281509342974634. 86 years old.

Hard not to feel bad for what he went through in life. But Polanski always struck me as a total sleezebag on a personal level. A man of low morals and a sense of enititlment to do what he pleased without consideration of others. People that worked with him generally say he is an arrogant individual when dealing with people and is verbally abusive. Basically he’s not a nice guy. And of course we all know of his legal troubles.

My gut instinct is that Sharon Tate saw Polanski not only as a love interest but also as a potential way to burgeon her career. Not that there was not genuine emotion but I think that’s part of why she was so quick to move in that direction. Based on books I have read in the past and what some close to her have stated, it appeared the marriage was already a bit contentious at the time of the murders and they were frequently arguing over time away and commitments. Yes there was genuine love but I couldn’t see it lasting long with both parties always on the move and frequently being separated by a continent. There was a lack of long term stability written all over that relationship. I would have given it another year or two tops before divorce settlements were being discussed. No way would that have lasted. IMO.

paulhart: Hi Coldwater. I also heard about the attack on Manson by Mike Deasy with a pitchfork at Spahn's Ranch. Can you tell me where you heard about that incident? I'm trying to track down the original source. Was it Deasy himself? Was it in a book? Thanks, Paul
