The Charles Manson murders and their Mind-Blowing Connections to Hollywood. My new favorite thing is the "You Must Remember This" Hollywood-history podcast. I am six episodes into the 12-part Charles Manson story
and I am shocked by how little I knew about the murders, the Hollywood scene at the time, how those things were inextricably linked, and the true psychopathology of Manson himself. Addictive, fascinated, well-reported and researched, I never thought I'd be one of those people who become obsessed by Manson, but hey it's happening.
Ah! I loved this story. Let me know what you think!
I think I mentioned Helter Skelter in a post about Roman Polanski or Krzysztof Komeda. Amazing how that one event had so much impact on the culture.
