Trivia

A real pity
19 September 2018 | by ewgersSee all my reviews

This film was cruising along quite nicely with Sharon Tate providing the best acting and the glamour The moment Orson Wells arrived in the film .It suddenly lost its way . For me .You can clearly see Sharon was going to be massive in years to come I truly wish she had got the chance
