Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired
Time Out says
Zenovich revisits Polanski’s early biography, with emphasis on the sneering treatment he received from the press after the murder of his wife, Sharon Tate, in their Los Angeles home in 1969 while he was in London, which she employs partly to explain Polanski’s later paranoia over his public persona. There’s no questioning of the seriousness of the crime of which Polanski was found guilty, but Zenovich convincingly argues, with recourse to strong testimony, that Polanski fell foul of the attention-hungry Judge Rittenband who appeared to care more about his profile and indulging celebrities than in administering justice.
