Helter Skelter (Part One and Part Two)

Burbank, CA: Lorimar Productions, 1975. Second Draft scripts for Part One and Part Two of the two-part 1976 television film which aired on CBS on April 1, 1976 and April 2, 1976, respectively.

Based on the 1974 true crime book by Charles Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi.Remade in 2004, directed by John Gray and starring Jeremy Davies and Clea DuVall.

The first and arguably still the best cinematic re-telling of the Tate/LaBianca murders, perpetrated by the Manson Family on August 8-9, 1969, and the subsequent investigation and 1970-71 trial led by Los Angeles prosecutor Bugliosi. Steven Railsback's performance as Manson is still one of the most riveting performances of the 1970s.

One of the most watched made-for-TV movies of its time, beating all previous records. Nominated for three Emmy Awards.

Shot on location in Los Angeles, California.
