PHIL SPECTOR GOT WHAT HE DESERVED
We’re not fans of writer David Mamet to begin with, so when we heard that he attempts to create a little doubt about Phil Spector’s guilt in the murder of Lana Clarkson in his HBO movie, we were turned off, but not enough to keep us from seeing the movie. Maybe Mamet thought he needed some “conflict” to liven up the film. But Phil Spector’s life offers plenty of entertainment and his guilt is not debatable. We were fascinated to meet Phil at a party at Joan Rivers’ New York apartment back in the 90’s. He was obviously an egomaniac and an unstable character – whether drunk or sober. The jury got it right when they locked him up.
