I loved the Patty Duke show, but when I found out that Cathy and Patty were the same person, I just flat didn't believe it. I didn't know about "camera magic". LOL.
Patty's house was beautiful. It's too bad that Roman said it was too expensive to buy. I wonder what Patty was asking. Then they moved to that Cielo Drive dump. I never liked that place. $1200/month was a lot of rent back in 1969. What is that in today's dollars? $4800.00/month???
People said the view was good, but who cares about the view? All you could see was smog anyway. I've been to LA when the smog was so bad you couldn't even see the Hollywood sign.
That's a LOT of dough. It would have been better to buy Patty's house and make house payments of $4800.00/month, but going towards principle.
The funny thing is Roman and Sharon weren't even there for the duration of the rent on that dump. They left in March of 1969, and Sharon returned in July of 1969. I wonder if Gibby was paying rent while they were gone. Probably not. Roman hadn't paid the rent by August 9th, so I guess he was behind on his rent payments.
That Cielo Drive property was beautiful when Michele Morgan owned it. Exquisite!
But when Rudi bought it he let it go way down. What kind of guy rents out a house and lives in the guest house? And he evidently didn't repaint every time a tenant moved out.
That would have been a sign to me that something was definitely wrong. I wonder if the toilets flushed or the bathtubs drained.
Oh well, maybe $1200.00/month was a bargain back then.
Seriously folks, I wonder if Roman told Gibby to pay the rent from April thru July when he and Sharon weren't there and Gibby & Voytek were living there, and then the August rent was in contention because Sharon was back. One of the reasons Rudi sued Sharon's estate was because the August rent wasn't paid.
