Personal Quote:

I know I was my own worst enemy. Hollywood has always been a magnet attracting incomplete people who think that money and glamour can somehow make them complete. It can't, of course. You get consumed by it, not completed.


Tennant had been Roman Polanski' business manager in the late 1960s. It was Tennant who took on the ugly task of identifying the dead at 10050 Cielo Drive on August 9, 1969.
