There have been numerous pieces dissecting ANZAC Day in the last 24 hours - and not all OTT positive. SMH columnist and non-fiction author Peter FitzSimons wrote : There is an inconvenient truth about ANZAC Day where he questions Gallipoli as Australia "foundation story" (our growing sense of independence from Great Britain) and offers up the Eureka Stockade instead. Jane Cowan for the ABC told the story of Afghanistan War veteran, Chris May and his heartbreaking struggle with PTSD - a story Australians aren't interested in. "No one cares, mate": Being a war veteran at 27.
According to Farrow, actor Sidney Blackmer (who played coven leader Roman Castevet) once said on set “No good will come of all this ‘Hail Satan’ business,” and apparently he wasn’t the only one who thought so. William Castle later became convinced the film was cursed. Shortly after production he suffered gallstones to such a severe extent that he required surgery. As he recovered from that illness, Rosemary’s Baby composer Krzysztof Komeda suffered an accidental fall that led to a coma and, eventually, his death. Then, in the summer of 1969, actress Sharon Tate—Polanski’s wife—was infamously murdered by the Manson Family. For Castle, it all added up.
