THE FALSE LIAR
THE LIFE AND THE ADVENTURES OF
This story collects testimonies of Luciano Vincenzoni’s life, a scriptwriter who was involved with the cinema for half a century.
Appreciated in Italy, Europe and Hollywood he collaborated with Pietro Germi, Carlo Lizzani, Mario Monicelli, Mauro Bolognini, Sergio Leone, Billy Wilder, Peter Bogdanovich, Renè Clemont and many others.
Pietro Germi called him "the false liar" because he told incredible stories that later turned out to be true ...
We were in Hollywood probably looking for the costumes for Duck you sucker, and a very nice American writer, famous in America because he is a criminal who is in and out of jail all the time, but he writes awesome movies always about criminals, he was very nice, he recognised us and at one point he said
"Friday if you want come over to Sharon Tate's house because it is a very hospitable home there are always beautiful girls" and we accepted ...
Bear in mind that it was Monday, on Wednesday the president of the TransAmerican Corporation, the one who has the pyramid on the port of San Francisco, who was also the owner of United Artists, called me and said "I know you're in Los Angeles come and spend the weekend with us "... ... so I decided to go to San Francisco
and I told Sergio "Look, I will not be there on Friday".
The next morning, Saturday, the president of Transamerican came to me, I was in bed and he came in and told me "Luciano something tragic happened my best friend’s daughter was slaughtered along with Sharon Tate in her villa by Manson’s followers".
My heart skipped a beat, oh Christ Sergio was there, I should have been there, so I immediately called the Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, I called Sergio ... and he answered ...
I said "ah, Sergio, you're alive!"
"I'm shitting myself, I saw the news, luckily last night as you were not coming and I don’t speak English I didn’t go and it saved my life!".
That famous night when Sharon Tate was killed he had to go with other people to this party and for a reason that I do not remember at the last moment he decided not to go and then naturally with the pride that distinguishes him "if I had been there probably it would not have happened! ".
