Samantha Geimer, now 45-years old, has asked that the charges against Polanski be dropped; she has received an undisclosed amount of money from Polanski as a result of her lawsuit against him.So, while it is my personal opinion that Polanski be punished for his crimes, I regard Geimer’s request as the most important.I do not know the policy at CBS for inter-office dating, but as far as I am concerned, a personal life is a personal life.Letterman did not do anything that requires legal action, and it is my belief that he has suffered enough from public scrutiny and the apparent anger of his wife that losing his job is rather unnecessary.
The public and the media have each taken sides on both of these issues, and they are not what I had expected.So did this guy actually ever interview Polanski or did he sit around with a bunch of history books and past material on the director and just transform it into a really banal piece of work that feels more like a lesson on past historical events than it does on the true Polanski.I am a huge admirer of Roman, I know his work well and I know his life well... I found it to be really boring and went on and on about things that I really didn't care much about.A year later, he fled for France and remained in Europe until his arrest in Switzerland this past September.In the last 30 years, Academy Award-winner Polanski has continued to make films and win awards, and many prominent figures have come out in his support.Granted, if you know nothing about Polanski perhaps this will be of interest.I found it to be poorly written, uninteresting, and not worth the time. This has Roman and Sharon's most famous photo together on the front and back of the book. Roman is ok but I mainly bought the book because of the Sharon Tate content.I wish the public opinion were a bit less skewed in terms of leniency for Polanski and harshness for Letterman.It seems Letterman is being unfairly punished while Polanski is unfairly supported.Polanski woke up in the hospital with a fractured skull.2) A year later, September 11 was the first day that one of Polanski’s films was shown in the U. I was surprised to learn that Sharon Tate’s acting career began with a string of cigarette ads which was followed by appearances on The Beverly Hill Billies, Petticoat Juncation and Mr. The author writes of Tate’s one affair with a foreign visitor who beat her up so badly it landed her in the hospital.
