New Book Exposes Roman Polanski's Sexual Exploits Before Arrest

Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) November 27, 2009 -- When successful classical music composer and conductor, Phillip Lambro was hired by the acclaimed director Roman Polanski in 1974 to compose the film score to Chinatown, Lambro found himself thrown into one of the biggest power struggles in classic celluloid history between film director Roman Polanski and producer Robert Evans.

Lambro's latest book, Close Encounters of the Worst Kind (Lulu Press), depicts the raw antics of not only Polanski and Evans, but some of Hollywood's biggest stars of the 70's with the kind of sharp sarcasm and brutal realism that we haven't seen since producer Julia Phillips' autobiography, You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again.

“Polanski is a contradiction and distortion like his life,” Lambro says, "When I witnessed him answering sex-for-sale ads from fifteen year old girls under the name of Paul while he was working in the Paramount editing room, we must deduce that his judgment was amiss.”

Lambro's warnings to Polanski about his bad (sexual) habit went unnoticed in 1974, until Polanski was subsequently arrested for having sex with a minor, Samantha Geimer, at the home of Polanski’s “friend” Jack Nicholson.

“If I saw Polanski answering ads posted by other under aged girls, who’s to say how many minors he had sex with or drugged?,” Lambro adds. “Geimer is perhaps the only one he got caught with. In this country having sex with a minor is a criminal offense, so why shouldn’t Polanski be extradited to serve his sentence 31 years later. My God, based on Geimer’s shocking grand jury testimony in 1977, Polanski was indicted on six counts including, perversion, sodomy and rape by use of drugs,” Lambro recalls.

ABC News reported in October that Hollywood is still rushing to Polanski’s defense. Directors Martin Scorsese, David Lynch and Woody Allen are among dozens in the film industry who have agreed to sign a petition calling for the immediate release of Polanski.

Tom Heneghan with Reuters writes, “It's tempting to ask whether Polanski’s defenders are defending the liberty to break the law and skip town, respecting the equality of all before the law and championing a brotherhood of artists who can do no wrong.”

From Lambro’s perspective while working on the film Chinatown, he says that, “Polanski, like some people in Hollywood, felt that he was above the law.”

“It’s outrageous,” David Wells, a former assistant district attorney on the case, told “This pedophile raped a 13-year-old girl. It’s still an outrageous offense. It’s a good thing he was arrested. I wish it would have happened years before.”

A former Los Angeles prosecutor who worked on the case told ABC News said he believes that if people knew all the details, they would have less sympathy for Polanski.

Lambro’s book captures the hedonistic hippie culture of the 60’s and 70’s that poses as an intoxicating backdrop for back stabbing Hollywood studio executives, the frenzied making of the film Chinatown, and Polanski’s risky behavior that ultimately led to Polanski’s arrest.

About Phillip Lambro After winning a place for himself as one of the most talented young native classical composers, Phillip Lambro was barely 24 when the late Leopold Stokowski conducted Lambro's music MIAFLORES for string orchestra and William Smith, Associate Conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, performed both Lambro's DANCE BARBARO for Percussion and MIRAFLORES for String Orchestra, with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
