"Roman and I," she says, "live in a house high in the Holmby Hills which we rented from Patty Duke. Patty's hobby is clocks, and she has more than 100 of all different sizes and shapes scattered around the place. I can sit looking out at the country beneath me from the back patio, see all the lights, the activities, the hustle and bustle and then look at the clocks all which stopped a long time ago. From this, I'm assured that time means nothing amidst all the hurly-burly that I see below. It's a strange thing, but gives me a deep feeling of security. The clocks are trying to tell me something," she coos, "time isn't all that important!"—Sharon Tate, in a newspaper interview with Harold Heffernan published in September, 1968.
