LOS ANGELES TIMES, Aug. 21, 1969 – Film director Roman Polanski today had paid a dramatic, tearful tribute to his wife, slain actress Sharon Tate, denying she used narcotics and describing her as a vulnerable woman who “couldn’t refuse any friendship.”
Film director Roman Polanski “broke down and cried” when he heard about the macabre sadistic murders of his wife, Sharon Tate seen in photo above with Roman, and four friends in Hollywood, by sadistic serial killer Charles Manson. Her unborn baby boy (who died with her) was to be named Paul Richard Polanski.
In his first public appearance since the slaying of the 26-year-old star of the movie “The Valley of the Dolls,” Polanski told reporters his marriage to the actress brought him his “only true happiness.”

Spring 2011, TMZ....Lindsay Lohan (L) is set to make her big screen comeback as a murder victim Sharon Tate (R) if she takes up a new movie deal. The 24-year-old has been offered the part of Sharon Tate in an upcoming film"Eyes of a Dream" about Charles Manson.
Sharon Tate, star of "Valley of the Dolls" and "The Fearless Vampire Killers" and wife to director Roman Polanski, was murdered (along with four others) by Charles Manson's followers when she was 8-and-a-half-months pregnant.
The movie "Eyes of a Dream" is being produced by Brad Wyman, one of the executives behind "Monster" starring Charlize Theron. TMZ is reporting that Manson will be played by photographer Tyler Shields, who has worked with Lindsay in the past, and he will also be directing the film. Tyler Shields is slated to direct his first full-length feature film, "Eyes of a Dream." Produced by Brad Wyman.
May 16th 2011 TMZ....Now that Lindsay Lohan is hoping to land a role in an upcoming Charles Manson movie "Eyes of a Dream" ... the actress spent her Sunday night with a dude who named himself after the psychopath.
Don't expect this role to be much more than a cameo though. Unless filmmakers are taking a lot of creative license with the project, the "Sharon Tate" role will likely be limited to the night of the Hollywood Hills killings.
