    Roman Polanski is a foreign film maker that has made movies all over the world. Some of his famous movies are...Rosemary's Baby, Chinatown and The Pianist

    In the late 60's his pregnant wife Sharon Tate was murdered by members of the Charles Manson family. In the late 70's Polanski was arrested for the statutory rape of a 13 year old. Polanski fled the USA and has never returned for fear of going to prison.

    He continues to make movies.

    His wife was Sharon Tate, one of the people killled in the Manson Murders back in the late 60's along w/ Abigail Folgers ( who would have been the CEO of the Folger's coffee empire hadent she been murdered), and I believe 4 others? Anyways Mr. Polanski, from what I read likes younger women as in underage, that bastard..lol.
