Hippies vs. Billionaires

When you stand back a bit and look at the series ‘Trust’ what you see is a bunch of scheming Hippies trying to get money out of a Billionaire by staging a fake kidnapping. Members of the Getty family are outraged by the idea Paul jacked his grandfather around like that, employing devious deception. . Being an original Hippie, I might have a lawsuit. Is this the kind of people we were – and still are? Danny Boyle is giving us a bad rap – for a million bucks! Outsiders are still trying to make millions exploiting the Hippie Rosamond and her family. The Kimbo tribe is depicting one of the Last Hippies as seriously mentally deranged Antichrist, on par with Charlie Manson, who is also being exploited by a famous movie director. Kim Hafner is demonizing me so she can be seen as the Savior of Springtucky. Christianity would not exist without a Boogey Man.

I have declared myself ‘King of the Bohemians’ . I think all this exploitation of My People, has to be cleared with me, first. I believe I have Copyrights. I suggest these exploiters start crossing my palm with silver.

Now in that deciding phase, Boyle says there are several things he might attempt. A film and a play are in the offing. (The next James Bond film has been rumored.) But the work on “Trust” has gotten him intrigued with long-form television. “There’s a boldness to guardians of long-form storytelling,” he says. “Unless you’re at Marvel doing those $200 million films, this can be as bold as you like. I find that extremely exciting.”

The 10-episode first season, written by Beaufoy and directed by Danny Boyle and others, is set in 1973 and recounts the abduction of John Paul Getty III, then-heir to Getty Oil, while he was in Italy.[1]

Trust” was created by Simon Beaufoy and executive produced by Boyle, Beaufoy and Christian Colson – the Academy Award-winning team behind “Slumdog Millionaire.” Boyle, who is now working on the new James Bond film, directed the first three of the 10 episodes. Variety described “Trust” as a “stylish, multilayered new miniseries.”


Launching a social campaign for the new original series Trust from Academy Award-winners Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy. To premiere on FX March 2018. We won the pitch based on the art direction style and POV. “Rich isn’t always pretty” a play on glamor, the 70s, and the ugly that lives underneath.

Trust delves into the trials and triumphs of one of America’s wealthiest and unhappiest families, the Gettys. Equal parts family history, dynastic saga and an examination of the corrosive power of money, Trust explores the complexities at the heart of every family, rich or poor.

    My Uncle Vinnie passed on the family literary legacy to the only family author besides his father-in-law, Royal Rosamond. I claim the Benton literary legacy via Jessie Benton, who married John Fremont. I am heir to Ian Fleming, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. I am going to ask members of the Getty family for backing. https://rosamondpress.com/2018/09/17/mel/
