Back in 1968, Paramount released “Rosemary’s Baby” (based on Ira Levin’s novel), directed by then up-and-coming film director Roman Polanski. The movie would become a phenomenal hit, the title a catchphrase everyone understood. Some forty-eight years later, it’s still viewed with morbid fascination.
Director Roman Polanski claims he doesn’t believe in the devil, yet the opening and closing sequences are shot from the devil’s point-of-view as he hovers over Manhattan.
His wife Sharon Tate was cast as an extra in the party scene. She was murdered while pregnant on August 9, 1969.
The mysterious apartment building known as “the Bramford” is really “the Dakota” where John Lennon was shot to death on Dec. 8, 1980. (Dec. 9th in Liverpool – #9.)
Book connections: “All of Them Witches” isn’t a real book, but is used as a device to warn Rosemary. The movie is meant to take place in 1966. In 1999, Polanski would direct another Satanic film titled “The Ninth Gate”, about a book that is able to bring forth the devil. 1933 – 1966 – 1999. 33 degrees.
Tony Curtis (who appeared with Tate in “Don’t Make Waves” a year earlier) does a voice-over as Donald Baumgart, an actor who goes blind from a witch’s curse.
Composer Krzysztof Komeda who wrote the eerie score died a year later from a brain injury.
Robert Redford lost the role of Guy Woodhouse due to legal reasons. John Cassavetes was cast instead.
Ruth Warrick was the only major Oscar winner (Best Supporting Actress.)
The novel and movie alludes to a network or witches living in New York. In the finale, the baby Adrian “the antichrist” is visited by devil-worshippers from all over the world. The baby itself isn’t shown and his mother Rosemary seems ambivalent. Today, he would be of age.
The mainstream media will never acknowledge the Luciferian agenda: a New World Order born from the United Nations, i.e., a world dictatorship.
