she’s coming down fast

Winter 69-70

I don’t know how I managed to forget to post this earlier but…Forty years ago today, blah, blah, blah.

Anyway, a few days ago, in preparation for this post, I went through all of the 1969 back numbers of Sight and Sound and Films and Filming that I have—I have the complete year of both magazines—and I could find absolutely no mention of the murders whatsoever until this small item in the 1969 obituaries in the Winter 1969/70 issue of Sight and Sound. Sort of classy of them I suppose but expect no such displays of decorum from this shithole site as I offer this dramatic reenactment of the events of the early hours of August 9, 1969.

Comin' down

  1. A stunning recreation, but I’m unsure who is playing who here.

    And what was it exactly about appearing in ‘Valley of the Dolls’ that ‘Sight and Sound’ felt warranted the term ‘promising’?
