The book, "The Girl: A Life in the Shadow of Roman Polanski," features a photograph of a young Samantha (then known as Samantha Gailey, her maiden name) taken by Polanski himself on Feb. 20, 1977.The photo was snapped just weeks before the director's infamous sexual encounter with Geimer, who was just 13 at the time. Polanski was accused of raping the teen during a modeling shoot at actor Jack Nicholson's home, after drugging her with alcohol and a Quaalude, and was originally indicted on six felony counts.
Polanski skipped the country and has been living the good life, lionized by the glitterati of Hollywood ever since. And why not? He did what they are doing every day.
