Photo Comparison of the Week, A Play Based on the Tragedy of Sharon and More On Polanski

This is from our wonderful contributer in Mexico, Jimena.  She sent me these lovely photos of Sharon and Roman along with another photo of Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand.  She said that not only are the photos similar but also that Marcheline (Angelina Jolie 's mother) and Sharon "were very similar, beautiful ladies, never said bad things about anyone, were really vulnerable and of course their pregnancy changed their lives."

Here Angelina talks about her mother and it sounds like she's talking about Sharon. I think that Sharon would have been an amazing and protective mother, just like Marcheline. Angelina's words about Marcheline, start around the 5:30 mark. :

On a side note to this story, Sharon and Roman's friend, Jacqueline Bisset is Angelina Jolie's godmother.

For more information on Bertrand go to this wonderful blog created in her memory:

Thanks so much for this, Jimena!

A critic here mentions a play that has a part about the tragedy of Sharon's fate intertwined with Greek Tragedy:

Here is a wonderful collage art photo of Polanski:

It comes from this website that also includes a review of Polanski's latest film, "The Ghost Writer":

Here is Rolling Stone magazine's Peter Travers great review of "The Ghost Writer":

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
