  1. I simply adore this photo.

  2. That’s the famous photo by David Bailey they are to auction off at Christie’s at the moment. It was used for Christopher Sandford’s neutrally held bio of him from last year as advance reader’s copy. The officially released book cover now has another photo of Polanski on it. I like this shot, he did adore her and she was happy with him. If only people had warned them about Manson creeping around then, and none of what followed had ever transpired. Including Geimer.

    • I love this shot too.

      I have always admired David Bailey’s work from the time I lived in London.

      I met David Bailey in Santa Monica. I have another coincidence which I will tell you of at another time.

      • Ha, how lovely – I love this shot too. The original was sold at Christie’s some months back & is the cover of one of the recent advance reader copy biographies on him – which unfortunately too included the same lie scumbag Kiernan came up with. I doubt I need to elaborate on which one.
