I wish I lived in the Mamas n Papas era, high in the canyons. Made my way down the hill, stoned, to eat at El Coyote and preen. It seems so familiar to me, so real. I think I might have lived there in a previous life! \
Those of you who lived through that era - describe it?
Rodney Binganheimer and Bob Evans
LA wasn''t nearly as crowded or mean then.
laurel canyon was where the action was. good times.%0D\
I''m an LA native and I''ve spent my life fascinated by Jay Sebring... even more specifically... um... The murders. %0D\
Was there any gossip about Mr. Sebring? Everything says he was attached to Sharon Tate at one point... I want to know if there was gay gossip. LOL%0D\
Anyhow, for those that live in WeHo, the shop that Abigail Folger bought her bicycle at right before the murder is on SMB. It''s now a clothes store.
The movie Shampoo was on Antenna last night. I caught it as I was heading to bed and ended up watching it. Carrie Fisher is unrecognizable as a teen, Warren Beatty looked good as did Goldie Hawn. It all seemed a little over the top but entertaining. It was based on the Jay Sebring guy and a republican dinner event.
R4 I'm nothing like my mother.
R5 I couldn't figure out if the CF character was underage or just a young adult living at home. And the mother had sex with George right after the daughter did!
LA then was happy and clean, roomy and fun, and everything took place in English.
OP, have you seen the 1968 documentary Mondo Hollywood? Sebring is in it, also Rodney Bingenheimer and Manson killer Bobby Beausoleil. Fascinating stuff.
R9, can you tell me which part of the film Beausoliel is in? I tried but can't sit through that film. Endless pointless minutes of football and people dressed in basic Halloween type costumes just ain't that interesting.
That must mean Sebring was gay since Franco never plays anything gay roles.
R13, Beausoleil appears as "Cupid" in the sequence that starts at 48.57. It's part of a profile of "Valerie Porter: American artist." Porter is hilarious: "I feel one should be able to have an affair with a piece of art!" and "Everything bores me to death. The only thing I find interesting is myself."
I also found the segment on Vito Franzioni interesting, due to the controversy over his son's death.
Sebring's sequence is linked below.
