July3,1989 Vic­to­ria Lea­cock — alone in Paris with no money and no pass­port — was re­cently res­cued by Ro­man Polan­ski. Lea­cock had just fin­ished film­ing a doc­u­men­tary on the Euro­pean tour of the Lounge Lizards. “I had my pass­port and wal­let pick­pock­eted on the metro [sub­way],” Lea­cock said. She re­turned to the apart­ment of her film­maker fa­ther, Richard Lea­cock, who was in the south of France, and started go­ing through his phone book. “The only person in town I could reach was Ro­man Polan­ski.” The Pol­ish film di­rec­tor — who has a pen­chant for un­der­age girls — kindly took the 25-year-old out to din­ner. “He was to­tally over­whelm­ing,” she said, “but I was far too old for him.”
