And killed right outside of the apartment is code is and the dakota is notoriously haunted spot in new york city and there's one ghost in particular that people said john saw which was the crying lady who may have been the ghost of a former manager of the dakotas yeah it's it's an incredible gothic structure with these gargoyles menacing gargoyles looking down on nuts west seventy second i think isn't it seventy second and i think that's right yeah yeah houston rosemary's baby i mean if you're going to if you're going to direct a a horror movie this is this is the locale you'll want and i think it was roman polanski who who did say it was it was haunted and there's there's a lot of occult there's an occult legacy there too because the owner or the one manager was also deeply involved in eastern mysticism and esoteric religions and so it it has a legacy had had it's kind of build up the supernatural reputation one of the the freaky aspects of the rosemary's baby movie which nine hundred sixty eight i think they came out mia farrow of course and this was just pointed out to me a couple of weeks ago and that is the if you look at the album the back of the imagine album and john lennon is is sort of see him in profile but he's he's laying lying down and we see his face sort of pointed skywards and then if you look at the poster for rose mary's baby and it's mia farrow in the same pose and yeah it is kind of strange and then there's a scene in that movie where it's been so long since i've seen it but there's a there's a a character who befriends mia farrow she ends up getting tossed out of the the window the dakota and she lands almost in the exact spot in that archway where of course john lennon died or was when he was hit by that hail of gunfire creepy creepy parallels that now jim morrison of course we have to talk about jim morrison we're coming up on a break here in a few minutes but we can start the conversation now continue of course so much discussion about whether he actually died in that bathtub in paris back in seventy one or.
