Polanski could face trial for defamation of one of his accusers
...When I couldn’t get into The Factory, I waited outside with my cameras to see if I could shoot some of the many stars who played there.
On August 8, 1969, I was talking to an actress and her best friend outside the club. I’d known her for a couple of years and when she was engaged to Phillipe Forquet, who starred with Sandra Dee and James Stewart in “Take Her, She’s Mine,” I visited them and she made dinner for us several times. We were laughing about old times, for about 15 minutes and then they went into the club. The next night she and her best friend were brutally murdered by The Manson Clan. Their names were Sharon Tate and Jay Sebring. Two days later, two FBI men showed up at my apartment and wanted to know what we’d talked about. How did they know who I was and where to find me? Duh, they were the FBI! Hollywood and it’s stars shut everything down. All the clubs, The Daisy, The Candy Store and The Factory were empty because celebrities were afraid to leave their homes and beefed up their home security. It was a scary time and the streets were deserted until we all learned about The Manson Family.
Five years later, bored with maintaining The Factory and looking for new avenues of fun, The Factory closed its doors.
