Jay Sebring and Roman Polanski

I'm confused as to why on earth Roman Polanski got along so nicely with Jay Sebring, and vice versa. Weren't they wildly jealous of one another? Jay spent tons of time with Sharon even after she was married, and continued to act like her boyfriend. Weird.

by Anonymousreply 35103/19/2019

Polanski was screwing everything he could find despite being married so he didn't really have anything to complain about. There was a famous story about Polanski cruising down some street in Hollywood, seeing a beautiful woman from the back, walking down the sidewalk, and stopping his car to come on to her. When she turned around, it was Sharon Tate.

R1 - I can't imagine Roman Polanksi being very successful at picking up random women off the street. He was never a looker. Jay Sebring however was handsome.

by Anonymousreply 205/09/2014

Hey, it was the sixties. Anyway, some people thought that Jay hung around because he knew Sharon and Roman would eventually divorce. He still loved Sharon and I suppose he hoped that maybe one day they'd reconcile. It certainly would have been better for her if she had married Jay Sebring. She'd probably be alive today if she had. She never would have been in that house the night the Manson family came to call.

What on earth did women see in the ratlike Polanski? I can understand some women wanting to sleep with him because he was a successful director; I guess they hoped he help them get movie roles. But I can't think of any other reason why a woman would want to go to bed with THAT. Not only is he short and ugly, but he's an incredibly selfish, domineering egotistical creep who eventually drugged and raped a 13 year old. He cheated on poor Sharon with impunity and people who knew them said he ordered her around like a servant.

In Pamela Des Barre's memoir "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart" she claims she got a call from Polanski. Seems he wanted to hook up with her. Miss Pamela, who would fuck just about anybody, turned him down, telling him that "he scared the hell out of me." She said he "laughed like a hyena" and hung up.

Sharon had been engaged to Jay when she flew to Europe to work on '13' (eventually titled 'EYE OF THE DEVIL') in the Fall of 1965.

She was under contract to Martin Ransohoff (producer of THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES). He was trying to branch out to better quality film and was in negotiations to produce a film with Roman Polanski who was a hot property. The screenplay that Polanski had (again, eventually titled) THE FEARLESS VAMPIRES KILLERS had the role of a beautiful innkeeper's daughter named 'Sarah'. Polanski had been dating Jill St. John and wanted to use her. Ransohoff wanted him to use his protégé; meet with her at least. They did and neither liked one another though they did better on date #2. Long story short, Sharon got the role, the two became involved while the film was in production in late 1966, early 1967 and it became serious. Sharon sent Jay a 'Dear John' letter but Sebring flew over to find out where he really stood. Allegedly after seeing how happy Sharon was with Roman, Jay graciously stepped aside and took the role of family friend. Jay ingratiated himself to Roman too so that he wouldn't feel threatened.

Sharon allegedly began to look at Jay more like a brother and she felt he was a little lonely, lost so she was often looking after him in a way. Personally, I think that Jay wanted to be around for when Sharon had finally had enough of Roman.

I don't believe that Roman found Jay to be a threat; that being, that it was like I wrote above. Jay, former fiancé, now family friend. Before Jay, Sharon was involved with a very handsome French actor Philippe Forquet. There was a physical fight that was bad enough that Sharon needed medical attention and Ransohoff pulled some strings to have Forquet blackballed. He went back to France and eventually entered his family's business. He & Sharon never saw one another again.

There have been rumors reported in the tabs through the years that Polanski wanted her to abort the baby. She refused and he didn't want much to do with her sexually after that. Just a rumor, but maybe that is why he didn't care.

by Anonymousreply 1205/10/2014

There's also the story that she waited to tell him that she was pregnant until she was too far along for an abortion.

At that point in his life, Roman was still scarred from what he had endured in WWII including the loss of his mother in a concentration camp. He had voiced that he didn't want to bring any children into the world. Years later he would have 2 with his 3rd wife, actress Emanuelle Seigner.

Sebring was into B&D and Sharon wasn't. She went along with it but it wasn't her thing. Then she got involved with Polanski, who treated her like shit, and rather than dump him, she pretended she was fine with it. Jay knew how unhappy she was and hung around hoping for a second chance. Polanski never wanted to marry her, and almost certainly didn't care if she ran around on him.

Any more gossip or info about Sebring? He seemed to be such an interesting character in his own right but we don't hear a lot about him. Several years ago there was supposedly a movie in development about Sebring titled Beautiful People starring James Franco. I thought it sounded pretty intriguing but it just got dropped or something. Im not sure if they just decided not to film it or what. Too bad.

I believe Sharon tried to talk her killer (Sadie??) out of it. She wanted her to let her have the baby first and promised she could kill her right after. The whole thing is just so sick! I was a child of the 80s and it's hard to imagine just how many serial killers were active In the 70s/80s: Gacy, Bundy, ONS/ EARONS, Ramirez, Coryll. There's more, I know.

Eldergay here. When I arrived in Manhattan in the early 1970s I heard from many people who moved in those circles that Sebring was bi but more gay than straight yet he adored Tate. It would have been a good match socially and Tate had been around the block a few times and probably wouldn't have cared about Sebring's "other needs." In those days you needed to be straight married to have a major career in just about any profession.

Polanski had family members killed in the Holocaust. His life was not American suburbia. Educate yourselves people. I think he's fucked up - and for a good reason. Does not excuse his actions with the underage girl but your wife and unborn child murdered might mess you up a bit. He was hardly the weirdest director in Hollywood for that matter.

by Anonymousreply 5601/12/2019

According to his autobiography, Polanski started hanging out with teenage women when he was floating around Europe after the murders. He said he liked them because they were innocent and simple: they didn't care about Hollywood fame or the Manson killings. They just wanted to have a good time.

Of course, this sounds and is self-serving (it's an autobio, after all). But it's interesting insight into the origins of his ephebophilia.

I highly recommend the You Must Remember This Podcast on the Manson Murders. Episode 7 focuses on Sharon's relationship with Jay Sebring, Episode 8 on her relationship with Polanski, and Episode 10 on Polanski's life after Sharon's death.

Reznor took the front door off the property to hang in a studio! The the original property owner Rudolph Altobelli moved back into the house 3 weeks later and lived there for 20 years feeling "safe, secure, loved and beauty."

R89 if I recall correctly, Olivia Hussey also lived in the house for a time afterwards and said something similar to Altobelli, that she felt warm happy vibes in the house. I thought that was very striking because it goes so against the "haunted doomed house " stereotype you would expect .

She lied about everything, so nothing she ever said was credible. At first she said she stabbed Sharon Tate to death. Then, when she wanted to get out of prison, she said she just held Sharon down while Tex stabbed her. Then I think she even denied holding her down, that it was all Tex. LIke hell it was! I believe she did stab Tate to death. And then licked her blood off her fingers. She said she did that; I do believe THAT.

Leslie Van Houten does the same thing, blames it all on Tex. She was a very eager participant in the murder of the LaBiancas, but now says she just did "what Tex told me to do."

He may be just saying that in order to make it look he takes full responsibility for what he did on those nights. That's one thing you have to do to get out on parole; convince the parole board you accept full responsibility for your actions. I think probably both he and Atkins killed Tate. Atkins also helped Bobby Beausoleil kill Gary Hinman. I don't she ever "froze" when it came to killing people.

I don’t think so, r98. He had nothing to really gain by finally admitting he killed Tate, as it hindered his chances at parole rather than helped him.

R44 Sebring had been married already. The marriage having ended not long before he met Sharon in '64.

R51 'he would've been into it' Where did you come up with that ? Bullshit.

R58 The hairstylist in SHAMPOO was a composite of several hairstylists. Warren Beatty was also friends with both Sebring & Tate and he (WB) was one of 3 friends who put up a 25k reward to anyone who could help bring the killers to justice. The other two family friends were Peter Sellers & Yul Brynner who was crazy about Sharon.

R63 Where do you get your information ? Initially Polanski tried to talk Sharon into aborting. He even made arrangements for her to fly to South America to have it done.

R74 Jay' nephew shows up at some of the parole proceedings; his last name is DiMaria I think. The Folgers have never spoken about the murders and will not. They are not the kind who would air their views on such a matter.

R82 Well, Jay's real name was THOMAS KUMMER

R89 Altobelli was hardly the original owner. The house was built in 1941 for actress Michelle Morgan. Altobelli purchased it in 1962; he was owner number 4. Altobelli didn't live there all 20 years after the murders. He was bought it to use as a rental property. Sometimes he'd stay in the main house and toehr times he would use the guest house.

R94 Lesley Ann Warren was well taken care of. Politics helped get her an undeserving Oscar for her cooperation once Babs set her eye on climber Jon Peters.

Personally, I'd have no interest in purchasing such a property, I do not have any psychic abilities of which I am aware. When I was in my teens I became friends with a guy my age. First time I went over to his house, I got a bad vibe about the place. Eerie. I didn't say anything because I didn't want him to think I was nuts. Months later he told me that his parents had gotten a good deal on the house when they'd bought it a year earlier since it had been the scene of a murder/suicide. Previous owners were in their 60s. The wife was dying of cancer. Husband shot the wife in the head, then himself.

"And Atkins wasn’t the one who helped Beausoleil kill Hinman, it was Mary Brunner."

Indeed she did help kill him. She bragged about it in prison. FYI:

On July 25, 1969, Manson family members Bobby Beausoleil, Susan Atkins, and Mary Brunner paid Gary a visit. Manson was under the impression that Hinman had money in stocks and bonds, and that Gary had owned his house and cars. He sent the group to Hinman's house to convince Gary to join the family, which included turning over his assets. According to Beausoleil, the group visited Hinman because Gary had sold him some bad mescaline and Bobby wanted his money back. Whatever the motive was, the conflict lasted 3 days. During which, Charles Manson and Bruce Davis stopped by. As soon as he arrived, Manson raised a sword and quickly struck Hinman in the head, slicing Gary's left ear and face. Hinman asked Manson why they were doing this and requested him to take the others and leave. Manson and Davis immediately left in one of Hinman's cars while the others stayed behind. Mary and Susan stitched up his ear with dental floss while Gary, who didn't believe in violence, just kept on asking them to leave. It all ended on the 27th when Beausoleil finally killed Hinman, stabbing him in the chest twice. Bobby, Susan, and Mary took turns holding a pillow over his face. Beausoleil then wrote "POLITICAL PIGGY" and drew a paw print on the wall in Hinman's blood in an attempt to make authorities think the Black Panthers committed the murder. Gary died on the floor with his prayer beads in hand, chanting "Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo", the chant of his faith.

Jay s dick looks slightly above average to me...........Terx Watson is the true monster in all of this/ yes Manson comes accross scary and dangerous in interviews but Watson pretty much hacked up everybody on both nights in 1969 and he enjoyed himlself....he said as much in his book he wrote. Krenwinkle was having a hard time stabbing to death Abagail as she kept hitting bone so Watson finished her off. He also stabbed to death Sharon after hanging her from the rafters as Sadie couldnt go thru with it.........she was all talk and lies/ Watson also stabbed to death Voytek 51 times and shot him and he shot and stabbed Jay. He shot Steven Parent at point blank range 4 times. He laughed that the victims were running around like chickens with their heads cut charning that Tex watson.........lets pray he never gets out of the pen........

As to why Roman Polanski wasnt jealous of Jay.........Roman was a supreme egotist and narcissitic to the nth degree and Im sure he could never fathom Sharon would be interested in anybody but him. He was an awful husband, didnt want the baby in the first place and mostly left his pregnant wife to fend for herself the last 2 months of her pregnancy. I think right at the end Sharon realized her marriage was never going to work.

Tate's mother voiced her doubts over Garrettson' claims> "How the shit could he have not heard anything ?" Garrettson changed gears over time. Initially said he heard nothing and expounded on the night as the years passed. Killer Krenwinkel claimed to have gone in the guesthouse and finding no one leading some to speculate that Garrettson hid elsewhere on the property til all was safe.

God, Sharon was beautiful.

Last summer I read the memoir of Nancy Bacon, who made the Hollywood scene in the 60s before descending into alcoholism in the 70s & finally getting her act together to become a writer. Anyhow, she says she knew Jay Sebring and describes a night she went back with him to his house shortly before the murders (I think the house may have been one that Jean Harlow had owned -- maybe the one where Paul Bern committed suicide (or maybe not suicide). She says he confided to her that he had a secret and would she not judge him? She had been around & seen a lot and didn't freak out easily, but she says he blindfolded her, strung her up, and teased a knife up & down her body while sniffing poppers. IIRC, he had also changed into some kind of dominatrix outfit. She eventually got him to let her down & he collapsed into tears as she left.

Who knows how much of it is true but it's a dishy read. She says she dated Hugh O'Brien and Rod Taylor (whom she describes as very sweet and a great lover). She also claims to have had a threesome with Mason Williams (the "Classical Gas" guy) and Tommy Smothers! She was with Smothers for a while.

The book is called "Legends and Lipstick" and is free on Amazon w/ Kindle Unlimited (maybe Prime Reading, too, I don't know).

Sebring did live in Paul Bern's haunted old house. Legend has it that Sharon was staying there by herself one night when they were dating, and was awakened by an apparition of Bern. She ran downstairs in a panic and saw a bloody, hanging ghost on the stairs. A premonition of her own sad fate? Many think so.

by Anonymousreply 17501/16/2019


I believe it steadily depreciated after the murders. Morgan lived in it about 5 years and she later said that she didn't like being alone there at night as she recalled hearing noises in the living room even though she knew she was alone. Lillian Gish lived there around 1949-50; other famous occupants include Cary Grant with then wife Dyan Cannon in the mid 60s, followed by Samantha Eggar who lived there in late 1966-67. Actress Candace Bergen who had attended Tate & Polanski's wedding reception lived there with her boyfriend Terry Melcher after Eggar. Bergen & Melcher were the occupants just before Tate & Polanski. Bergen and Melcher moved out in December 1968; the Polanskis signed the lease on 2/12/1969 and moved in right afterwards. Roman only lived in the house about 1 month before returning to his place in London. She flew out of LAX on the 24th of March heading to Italy to film her last movie, THE 13 CHAIRS. Rudi Altobelli who owned the Cielo Drive property and was staying in the guest cottage with his caretaker boy, Garrettson had the seat next to Sharon on the flight. It was on the previous night that manson allegedly came onto the property. manson was walking around out front while Sharon, Voytek, Gibby & a friend of Sharon' named Hatami were eating dinner. Hatami went to confront the stranger. Hatami couldn't recall later who manson had said he was looking for but he (Hatami) said he told manson that whoever it was he didn't live here and that maybe he was in the guest house at the rear of the property. Hatami, an Iranian whose English was limited didn't know the word for pathway and inadvertently may have insulted manson by instructing him to use the 'alley'.

On the flight to Rome, Sharon had asked Altobelli if "that creepy looking guy who had come back there last night". He had. Altobelli however knew who manson was as he'd been on the property before. Altobelli recalled that manson was looking for Terry Melcher and he told manson that he no longer lived there. manson wanted his current address and Altobelli who knew it, lied and said he really didn't know and to "don't come back, nor disturb the tenants at the main house."

Candace Bergen told a tale about how while she & Melcher were living there, she had a couple of free days and would sleep late each day. She got up late one morning and went out to the kitchen to grab some coffee and manson was in the kitchen. No one else was in the house. She recalled that she tried to keep her calm, asked him who he was etc and that manson said he was looking for Terry. Terry wasn't there. Bergen kept it cordial to get him out of there but once Terry arrived home she blasted him and told him to make it known to all of 'friends' and everyone else that theirs was not going to be an open door policy to the place.

I wonder, if Altobelli had given Manson the new address, if Manson would have sent his murder-zombies after Melcher instead of Melcher's old house.

Although, judging by R176's post, Manson seemed to have an odd fixation on Cielo Drive. It did have that isolated, rustic look which seemed to appeal to Manson (hence his squatting at Spahn and Barker Ranch). Another house Manson greatly admired, and used to tell visitors was his, was Dennis Wilson's rustic mansion (see picture). Perhaps Cielo Drive was the kind of house Charlie would have liked to own and fill with pretty girls, hence his obsessive need to be a rock star and his rage when it became clear it wouldn't happen.

It's odd how often 10050 Cielo was filmed, photographed years before the murders. I bought an retrospective of the old Sixteen magazine and there was an article on Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere and the Raiders from 1966 - he was posing at a gate that looked familiar and later I figured out it was 10050 because Lindsay rented the house when managed by Terry Melcher.

They had wanted to but it from her but Patty decided to move back into it and advised that she wasn't going to renew their lease.

Things were a lot different decor-wise in 1969, R182

Wall to wall carpet was in, wood floors were out. Wall to wall was touted as being softer on the feet, easier to vacuum, more uniform looking rather than a wood floor with an area rug here and another area rug there. My mother covered her maple wood floors with wall to wall because she didn’t want to seem “poor” to all the neighbors who had wall to wall.

Framed posters were very “in.” I wish I had a nickel for every Don Quixote poster shown on the walls in my mom’s decor books. French posters, Italian movie posters, posters touting museum exhibits were considered very cool. Younger people had posters saying “Love” and “War is not healthy for children and other living things.”

Acoustic guitars were used as decor accessories. If there was a fireplace in a decor mag, there was an acoustic guitar leaning up against it and ithe guitar was often set atop a large, colored pillow. Big reel to reel tape recorders were also popular, usually placed on the top shelf of a bookcase or on a wall shelf.

1969 was the height of counter culture and my big sister’s married friends often had an American flag tacked up on a wall. Jimi Hendrix posters were also cool, as were posters of Bob Dylan. A poster of Dylan with multicolored hair seemed ubiquitous.

People didn’t flash their wealth back then because greed was bad. They didn’t spend hundreds of thousands of dollars putting waterfalls and spas in their pools surrounded with Italian tiled patios. Just lounging by a pool made you wealthy.

Best of all, our culture was not saturated with celebrity culture back then. There were movie magazines and fan magazines but celeb stuff wasn’t reported as “news.” You wanted to see celebrities, you watched Johnny Carson or a game show like Hollywood squares or Match Game. Celebs didnt yet have clothing lines, readily available sex tapes, their own perfumes/colognes. That all started a few years later.

Cielo Drive, with its many, many famous renters, must have been one big flashing sign of his Hollywood failure to Charlie. No wonder he told Tex and the girls to go up there and kill anyone they found living there. He wasn't trying to kill anybody in particular but Hollywood in general, stab it right through its beautiful, superficial heart. In that sense, Sharon Tate was the perfect victim: A beautiful blonde actress whose limited fame allowed her to stand in for so many other beautiful blonde actresses who would never, ever fuck Charlie. (Even though she was quite happy to fuck another short, ugly man, the difference being that Roman was talented and famous in a way that Charlie would never be.)

The Tate Murders were a violently symbolic act on Manson's part. And though he didn't kill Hollywood, he did change it forever. The all-access party was well and truly over after that: Scruffy hippies would never get so close to the Beautiful People again.

the caretaker on the property on the night of the murders claimed he didnt hear anything. I dont think I believe it. He was in the guest house which is about 100 feet behind the pool. Behind the guest house furthest away from the main house at the extreme southern point of the property was a fairly good sized level grassy area and then it just dropped off to the canyon below. My hunch is when Garrretson did hear the screams and gunshots he took the dogs (ALtobellis) and hid back there for hrs. The guest house had 4 exit doors and at least 2 on the south side. He was really not a bright guy and he had a heavy drug problem but he seemed to be a mild harmless guy. Altobelli picked him up hitchhiking probably as a guess because Garreston use to hitch hike shirtless and had a nice body. Altobelli saw that he was good with dogs and would be somewhat dependable on the property and had him house sit for ALtonbellis extended European stay of 6 or more months. After the murders they did tests on the decibel level of gunshots from the main house to the guest house with the guest house stereo turned up to the level Garretson had it that night and the results showed it was possible not to hear it. I dont know sounds and accustics well but supposedly the canyons play tricks on sounds and the people that did hear a commotion that night were not nearby neighbors but further away.

R174 Yikes Bacon's story is pretty out there, I wonder if it's true. Interesting about him collapsing in tears, he sounds pretty messed up mentally. It's always tough to know the truth in cases like this where the people involved aren't around to defend themselves.

by Anonymousreply 20601/16/2019

It's naive to think that house symbolized Hollywood, and it was just a random symbolic attack on Hollywood.

I studied this case for many, many hours. Here are some very important anomalies:

1) Bugliosi was a corrupt prosecutor in Los Angeles, which is famous for prosecutorial misconduct. In the years after getting famous with his cover-up book "Helter Skelter", Bugliosi was revealed to be a raging pathological liar and an all around complete scumbag.

Bugliosi became convinced that his new child wasn't his, and that his wife must have had an affair with the milk man at the time of conception. Bugliosi used his government access to track down and stalk the former milk man. It was completely delusional, aggressive, corrupt behavior, and Bugliosi went to elaborate extremes to cover his tracks and weave a web of lies.

Around this same time (early 70s), Bugliosi impregnated his mistress, and beat the crap out of her after she refused to get the baby aborted. She called the cops, and it was all reported. Then Bugliosi broke into her house again and forced her to sign a statement saying that she lied about him beating her up. Bugliosi was running for state Attorney General at the time, and needed a clean record. Luckily these two stories of Bugliosi's scumbag behavior came out right before the election, and Bugliosi didn't get elected Attorney General of California.

Bugliosi went on many years later to write a huge book about the JFK assassination, defending the absurd official narrative. We know that Bugliosi was wildly corrupt and basically evil in his personal life, and we know that he was capable of weaving elaborate lies in his own personal life and legal affairs. We know that Bugliosi wrote a super-long book about JFK, a web of elaborate lies that defend the official narrative that Oswald was the lone assassination.

All of this means that Bugliosi is completely unreliable in regards to anything relating to the Manson Murders. His prosecutorial conduct is unreliable, and his best selling book about the Manson Murders is unreliable.

2) There are big clues about intelligence agencies and large-scale drug dealing written all over this case.

Sebring was ex-Navy, and his growing hair salon chain was financed in part by Sharon Tate's father, who was a military intelligence big shot (assistant chief of staff for intelligence at the Sixth Region Army Air Defense Command at Fort Baker). In fact, after the murders, Sharon's father opened up his own line of hair salons, called Tate Hair Emporium or something like that.

Sebring was a big-time drug dealer and a hair salon chain owner, financed by Tate the Army Intelligence big shot. Hair salons are cash-based businesses, so easy to launder lots of drug money. Look into Vidal Sassoon himself, he was a Mossad operative. The dumb movie Don't Mess With the Zohan dealt with this. Sassoon was also an heir to the Sassoon family that ran the opium trade in China. So powerful that they got the British Army to fight The Opium Wars for them.

Folger was an heiress to the Folgers coffee fortune, and her family were obviously elites within the US establishment and secret societies. They were members of Bohemian Grove, and they started a separate secret society when they felt Bohemian Grove was getting too crowded or common.

Folger Coffee did huge business in Vietnam, and their corporate/land interests were a consideration in the Vietnam War. Also, the US Army was importing tons of heroin from Vietnam, inside body bags and Army planes. Folger's Coffee bags would have also made ideal transportation concealment.

Abby Folger's boyfriend Frykowski was a big-time drug dealer, just like Sebring. And in Polanski's police interrogation, available on Youtube, Polanski notes that back in Poland Frykowski's guardian or mentor was the #1 intelligence agency figure in Poland. Frykowski had extremely deep intelligence agency ties.

r206 if that story is true about Sebring, it opens up the possibility that Sebring had something to do with the tying up and stabbing that went down at Cielo Drive, even if Sebring ended up dead at some point.

Because as I explain above in r207, Bugliosi is the most unreliable narrator imaginable.

by Anonymousreply 20801/17/2019

(Continued from r207)

Anyway, Folger, Tate, Sebring, and Frykowski all had deep ties to intelligence agencies and large scale drug dealing. There's something very significant about that, especially since the LaBiancas were big-time drug dealers as well, and the Hinman murder was drug related too.

You're telling me that the Manson Family were on a spree of killing rival drug dealers, but it's pure coincidence that the Cielo Drive house was full of big-time, well-connected drug dealers?

No way.

Bugliosi led the cover-up, starting with the prosecution and then the novel Helter Skelter.

It would have been the same thing if Jeb Bush and W Bush had been killed over a big drug deal at a Miami or Panama airport in the 1980s. The prosecutor would have been a Deep State operative, and an elaborate narrative would have been created to explain why Pablo and Diego killed the Bush Boys for no reason.

Anybody interested in a really deep dive into related matter should read this book, full text below. In my estimation it's all connected. CIA, MK-Ultra, Manson, Jim Jones. Manson was a prisoner in Vacaville State Prison along with Sybionese Liberation Army leader DeFreeze, at the exact time that the CIA was doing MK-Ultra mind control experiments on prisoners.

The novel and movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest were based on Ken Kesey's real-life job working in a San Fran Bay CIA/MK-Ultra mental hospital where the patients were experimented on.

"The novel is a direct product of Kesey's time working the graveyard shift as an orderly at a mental health facility in Menlo Park, California.[9] Not only did he speak to the patients and witness the workings of the institution, but he voluntarily took psychoactive drugs, including mescaline and LSD, as part of Project MKUltra."

JFK assassin or "assassin" Sirhan Sirhan was given "therapy" by the Los Angeles head of MK-Ultra experiments.

Charles Manson was let out of prison, against his wishes, with the push from a powerful Beverly Hills lawyer. Charles Manson then moved down to Los Angeles, just weeks before the RFK assassination.

And who did RFK dine with the night before his assassination? Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski.

Was Manson an alternate patsy for an RFK assassination attempt?

Was Jim Jones' People's Temple basically a privatization of the officially terminated MK-Ultra experiments?

Was the CIA interested in testing and designing drugs that would make black populations docile and prevent more race riots?

Nowadays, look at the Bronfman heiresses running an international sex trafficking brainwashing cult, complete with schools for children, while one of the Bronfman girls was also appointed head of the US-Libya Chamber of Commerce after the Libya regime change. And Bronfman's husband was being groomed to replace Qaddafi as ruler of Libya.

And what are the odds that Libya is now an epicenter of human trafficking, with the sex trafficking Bronfman heiress in charge of the US-Libya Chamber of Commerce?

And notice how the media not only refuses to report on the new, widespread slave trade in Libya, but they also refuse to connect Libya to the NXIVM sex cult that the Bronfman sisters were running and financing.

Abigail Folger was just one of many elite heiresses who got wrapped up with intelligence agencies and international intrigue. Lisa Layton was another. She was the German-American banking heiress who financed the People's Temple Agricultural Project, which her children helped run. Deborah Layton was Jim Jones' banker, and Larry Layton was in charge of the armed guards at Jonestown. It was Larry who killed Congressman Ryan on the air strip.

He was converted in prison, and he was even an auditor in prison. Ever notice how nobody talks about the Scientology connection to Manson? Not even the anti-Scientology documentary mentioned that Manson was a Scientologist.

If the Bronfman girls had been alive back then, they would have been running Scientology. I wonder what kind of stuff Abigail Folger was getting up to, besides dating a Polish drug lord with deep intelligence agency connections.

Connected to r219: Good summary of the basics of the NXIVM cult that the Bronfman heiresses were running. I don't know exactly what Abigail Folger's deal was, but I suspect she was up to some intrigue of her own. Remember that Polanski was well known for being a kiddy porn producer long before he got busted making kiddie porn and drugging and raping his last victim before his arrest. And Sebring was obviously into some really demented shit. So was Manson and company, they raped babies. What was Folger doing dating a drug lord and hanging out at the house of a child pornographer and with Sebring the bondage fetishist?

They had their own kinky NXIVM-type party scene going on.

One more thing to think about. Sebring being bi/gay would have allowed him to advance on the fast track in the Navy. He could have quickly rose into the ranks of Navy Intelligence/CIA, just based on his willingness/eagerness to partake in the secret society sex parties. And there would be no trace of this advancement, just like the "former Marine" who was arrested in Russia recently on espionage charges. That guy was a spy for sure, and all his military record shows is "former marine".

Sebring was "former Navy", being financed by Sharon's father Paul Tate, who was a top Army Intelligence officer.

Sebring was likely indeed an intelligence operative, just like Vidal Sassoon was.

Here's the limited list of Vidal Sassoon's military/intelligence activities that Wikipedia will admit to. Everything else is off the record:

Wartime activities At the age of 17, although he had been too young to serve in World War II, he became the youngest member of the 43 Group, a Jewish veterans' underground organisation which broke up fascist meetings in East London.[12][13] The Daily Telegraph calls him an "anti-fascist warrior-hairdresser" whose aim was to prevent Sir Oswald Mosley's movement from spreading "messages of hatred" in the period following World War II.[12]

In 1948, at the age of 20, he joined the Haganah (which shortly afterwards became the Israeli Defence Forces) and fought in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, which began after Israel declared statehood.[13][14] During an interview, he described the year he spent training with the Israelis as "the best year of my life," and recalled how he felt:

When you think of 2,000 years of being put down and suddenly you are a nation rising, it was a wonderful feeling. There were only 600,000 people defending the country against five armies, so everyone had something to do.

Remember the movie Wag the Dog?

"Wag the Dog is a 1997 black comedy film[1] where a spin doctor and a Hollywood producer fabricate a war to distract voters from a presidential sex scandal. "

It's based on Polanski's close friend and benefactor Robert Evans, the guy who hired Polanski to direct Rosemary's Baby and later, Chinatown.

Why was a movie about a CIA operative Hollywood producer based on Robert Evans? Because Robert Evans was a CIA operative. He was also very close friends with Henry Kissinger, the CIA/Deep State/Rockefeller-groomed big shot.

So Polanski was a Satanic pedophile, hired by a satanic Robert Evans to make a satanic movie about a woman who gets brain-washed and impregnated by a satanic cult.

Oh, and Polanski helped get Sharon Tate cast in a Satanic film as well.

Charles Manson was Satanic, all his Manson Family killers were Satanic.

The whole thing reeks of satanic secret societies, intelligence agencies, and large scale drug dealing and mind control.

Oh, and Robert Evans (who people called Satan), barely escaped being charged for the Cotton Club Murder, when Evans and some co-producers had another co-producer Roy Radin killed. And Radin was a top NYC Satanist, in charge of the Satanic cult that Son of Sam David Berkowitz was a member of.

Remember that the Son of Sam murders were all blamed on one lone wolf, and the Satanic drug cult was never investigated or reported on.

Also, David Berkowitz said that he knew who the Zodiac Killer was. Well, it turns out that the probable Zodiac Killer was William Mentzer, the Hollywood bodyguard who was one of the hitmen in the Cotton Club Murder of Roy Radin.


Oh, and remember Robert Durst, the mega-millionaire real estate heir who was a serial killer. He was a Satanist too, but he's depicted as a lone nut. He traveled in the same exact Hollywood circles that we're discussing here.

Kenneth Anger - Lucifer Rising

Lucifer Rising is a short film by director Kenneth Anger. The film was completed in 1972 but was only widely distributed in 1980. Anger began filming around 1966, hiring a young musician named Bobby Beausoleil to act and compose the soundtrack. The film was abandoned in 1967 because Anger claimed the film footage had been stolen by Beausoleil. (Beausoleil and others said that Anger had simply spent all the money for the film). Anger then used some of the existing footage in another short film, Invocation of My Demon Brother. Beausoleil was convicted of killing Gary Hinman under the orders of Charles Manson in 1970. Anger began filming again several years later, with British singer Marianne Faithfull appearing in the film. Jimmy Page was brought in to record the soundtrack, but after he had a falling out with Anger, he was replaced by Beausoleil, who wrote and recorded the music in prison.

"Last summer I read the memoir of Nancy Bacon, who made the Hollywood scene in the 60s before descending into alcoholism in the 70s & finally getting her act together to become a writer. Anyhow, she says she knew Jay Sebring and describes a night she went back with him to his house shortly before the murders (I think the house may have been one that Jean Harlow had owned -- maybe the one where Paul Bern committed suicide (or maybe not suicide). She says he confided to her that he had a secret and would she not judge him? She had been around & seen a lot and didn't freak out easily, but she says he blindfolded her, strung her up, and teased a knife up & down her body while sniffing poppers. IIRC, he had also changed into some kind of dominatrix outfit. She eventually got him to let her down & he collapsed into tears as she left.

Who knows how much of it is true but it's a dishy read. She says she dated Hugh O'Brien and Rod Taylor (whom she describes as very sweet and a great lover). She also claims to have had a threesome with Mason Williams (the "Classical Gas" guy) and Tommy Smothers! She was with Smothers for a while.

Beausoleil hasn't been "paroled." The governor can prevent it and I assume he will, if he ever hopes to get elected to any office again.

Krenwinkel had a medical condition in which her body produced too much testosterone. This made her extremely hairy, and virtually none of the men wanted to have sex with her. Apparently the only one who would touch her was Charlie, and as a result she was completely devoted and loyal to him.

[quote]r90 Olivia Hussey also lived in the house for a time afterwards and said something similar to Altobelli, that she felt warm happy vibes in the house. I thought that was very striking because it goes so against the "haunted doomed house " stereotype you would expect .

A friend of mine worked for Rudi Altobelli for years and spent many days in that house, as well as house sitting when he was gone.

They said the house had tons of windows and was filled with light, and there were french doors to the pool area that were always open. It was apparently a gorgeous house that physically had a serene, bright atmosphere.

It seemed safer back then, I used to hitch-hike with my friends across town--, that would be unheard of today. The gas shortage, Watergate, plane highjacking were isolated incidents that didn't affect my local life like they do now. Of course, after the Manson murders and Hillside strangler, I was more careful. Today we have gun shootings every other week and dealing with an unstable government with a narcissistic Unstable Idiot in charge and this awful shutdown. There actually was a bipartisan government then, not the extreme polarization you see today and people were more optimistic about the future because of the changes being made. There was an explosion in music, creativity, in the arts and in culture. It was a fascinating period of time.

In that podcast series linked above, they make an interesting point about Tate. That while her incredible beauty was the thing that made man after man do her favors, and had let her leapfrog over any kind of typical Hollywood Newcomer strugle (she got an agent on her first day in town or something), she was also at something of a crossroads. Her beauty had also failed her in a certain sense, as it HADN'T secured great roles, a faithful husband, a peaceful life etc.

I like to think Polanski would have made TESS with her (she'd shown him the novel, and he then asked her to prepare a treatment of it), and just maybe he'd have got a good performance out of her. It could have been a good, tragic role for her. I don't think she'd have gone on to any GREAT career...but with her husband directing, maybe she'd have given one classic performance to be proud of.

[quote][italic]The Sensational Sharon Tate Blog: [/italic] Julie Christie gave friend Sharon Tate a copy of Thomas Hardy's novel "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" with the inscription "For my Hardy heroine" (Julie had recently become a Thomas Hardy heroine in Far from the Madding Crowd (1967). Sharon would read the book on board the Queen Elizabeth II ship as she came back to America from London when she was pregnant. Sharon told her husband Roman Polanski that it would make a wonderful movie shortly before her death. When Polanski later made the film Tess (1979) he dedicated it "For Sharon". It's interesting to think about this because Sharon and her life are sort of reminscent of a tragic Thomas Hardy heroine.

The confusion over the Manson family murders is mostly down to the immense amount of infamy that the case has generated over the years. The succeeding decades have not done anything to diminish the fascination that the general public have with the Manson family and the horrific crimes they committed. The facts have long been obscured by the conspiracy theories, books and documentaries that have sensationalised what really happened. In reality the Bugliosi book gets about as close to the truth as we’ll ever know.

I could see that Tate/LaBianca murders having more of a drug angle than Bugliosi emphasized in the trial. Charlie, Voytek Frykowski, and even the LaBiancas had drug connections (through their daughter). In Helter Skelter it said that after the murders, toilets were flushing all over Los Angeles: "the entire sewer system is stoned."

However, that doesn't mean Charlie wasn't also trying to 1) get Beausoleil, his prime procurer of young girl, out of jail 2) stay in control of his family by assuring them that Helter Skelter was about to get started and 3) stab at the heart of the Hollywood elite who rejected him. His motives were mixed and strange, but I don't think it was a giant conspiracy starring MKULTRA. I think it's more that some powerful people knew Manson and his willing acolytes far better than they wanted to admit and that the drug trade in LA reached the highest levels, and THAT was information nobody wanted coming out at the trial. Hence, it didn't. But Charlie was still crazy, and he and his followers were still guilty as hell.

Of course Tate was not an unknown. She won a Golden Globe nomination and was in a hit film, and was married to a very up-and-coming star director. Was she known across the country? No, of course not. After all, she'd also only been in movies of any note for three years. To say she was an unknown is stretching it beyond the definition of unknown.

to use the literal definition of "unknown" is to declare that anybody featured on page 28C of a local newspaper is a public figure.

Everybody on facebook is famous if we stick to a literal definition of unknown.

In fact, anybody with a family or a friend is not unknown.

regarding previous boyfriend Forquet................he and sharon had one violet episode while they dated about a year or more. There was a fairly lengthy write up about him in the greg king book about sharon,,,, sharon tate and the manson murders.

I hate physical abuser,s but if you read Forquet s version of events, they had an intense volatile relationship where each side gave as good as they got. He claimed on more than one occasion Sharon would thow knives or other objects at him etc etc and at one point he made a trip to the emergency room for an altercation with Sharon. I dont condone violence but it wasnt a situation where he stalked her or threatened to kill her or beat her to a pulp...... it was a passionate unhappy relationship.

Forqeut moved back to France after he and sharon broke up and he said in the interview for the book 30 years later that it took him 10 years before he was recovered enuf from the year he was with Sharon emotionally to start another relationship.

So I am concluding from reading about this event in his life he wasnt a violent monster, it was a relationship that was very very hot that tended to go out of control as both people were very emotionally invested in the relationship.

This really seems out of character for Sharon as she was a very low key person. Unfortuantely what I derived from the book which pretty expensively covered her short life was a tendancy for her to chose the wrong men. Jay was actually the nicest most mild mannered of anybody she was involved with. Unfortunately her love life started out very badly. When still a high school student her parents allowed her to go out on a date with an older guy who was in the military where her father was stationed, and he raped Sharon. Her relationship with men overall proved to be somewhat rocky and I am sure being stunning beautiful worked against her as much as it worked for her in that regard.

She would surely have looked exquisite, and maybe playing a simple girl who was caught up in events, rather than instigating them, would have taken the pressure off. And it's not like Tess is a very demanding role - the character has no insight into anything.

Speaking of Polanski, this is a HUGELY unpopular opinion but I agreed with Switzerland 's choice not to extradite him back in 2009. 30 years had gone by and the victim had forgiven him and had asked to simply be left alone by the media . Meanwhile we unleashed a living nightmare on the Iraqi 's that is still going on and destabilized the entire mid east. Everytime I heard finger waving sanctimony about this case during that time I rolled my eyes. I kept hearing about how Americans were oh so noble unlike sleazy Europeans. Nobody has been held accountable for what we did to Iraq, who the fuck was the United States to demand extradition over shit that happened 30 years ago. So much finger wagging by warmongerers. The Swiss were right to give US prosecutors the finger.

In the middle of reading Helter Skelter sometime in the '90s, I went up to the Ciello Drive house. I think it was in the middle of being torn down. I was there for about 5 minutes, but then started to get very bad vibes, and I left.

I don't believe in ghosts or anything, but just being in that infamous space- looking at the gate, and the telephone pole Tex climbed to cut the wires- started to freak me out. I honestly don't know HOW anyone lived in that house. It stood for almost 30 years after the murders.

I see the nut jobs have been out in full force on the whole............ it was a drug related murder etc etc/ they even throw in the Labiancas as drug dealer? Leo and Rosemary were about as far removed from the hollywood scene and drugs as could be imagined. Leo ran a grocery chain and Rosemary owned a womans clothing store and was highly succesful in options/commodities trading and her estate was valued at over 2 million dollars...... and that is 1969 money we are talking about.

Frykowski did do drugs himself but he bought them with Abigail Folgers money and he just gave them away to anybody that was a friend. He was the type of person that lived each and every day like it was the last one of his life/ there was a great book recently published on the Tate family called..... restless souls...... and it goes into much detail about the victims lives. Frykowski barely spoke any english and the thought that he was some big drug dealer is just stupid. Jay was using a lot of cocaine the last 6 months of his life and it started when he found out Sharon was pregnant. He sold small quantites but nothing to interest any serious drug dealers.

THe awful fact that people have a hard tiime with is the Cielo drive murders were completely random and senseless. My belief is it was somewhat born out of Manson s rage towards not making it in society and additionally doing a copycat murder for complicated reasons to cover up their recent murder of Gary Hinman, where a family member was in jail on a murder rap.

Finally if you are still convinced it was some drug related massacre or a cia plot or whatever..........why did Manson and his henchman go out on the 2nd night for another murder spree and drive around for like 4 hrs trying to figure out randomly who to kill? THey went to pasadena, glendale etc and drove around for hours looking for targets. THey went to a house, a church, and were going to shoot somebody in asports car next to them at a red light but didnt at the last minute for fear of getting immediately caught. Then a lightbulb goes off in Manson s head and he remembers a slightly isolated house in glendale adjacent east los feliz where he went to a drug party a couple of times and remembered a house next door...............the Labianca s...............sorry you crazed idiots...this was random murders almost committed for no reason except for a couple of lunatics out to avenge internal rage and sickness. These were geographically picked murders that focused on the familiarilty of the houses and grounds and had nothing to do with the actual occupants, as awful and random as that with it.

The killers knew the layout of the house because Melcher lived there. They knew Harold True who was the LaBianca's next door neighbor so they knew that house too.

Melcher's mother Doris Day was born and raised in Cincinnati and Manson was also born there.
