Black and white, glossy press photo, 7 1/2 by 10 1/2-inches. Near fine with an inventory label and pen/pencil notations verso. “’ATTORNEY’ MANSON LEAVES COURT -- Charles M. Manson, the hippie-style cult leader charged with the killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others, leaves a Los Angeles courtroom with his pencils and paper yesterday after the judge ordered a plea of innocent. Manson, acting as his own lawyer, responded with questions of his own each time the judge asked for a plea. It was his first court appearance since shaving his beard and mustache.” The vest Manson wears in this photo was made by members of The Family, as quoted by Sandra Good in Rolling Stone: “’We’ve been working on this vest for two years,’ says Sandra, ‘adding things, sewing on patches. It’s for Charlie to wear in Court.’ And Squeaky adds, ‘Wouldn’t it be beautiful to have a photograph of Charlie wearing it? And all of us standing around close to him, hugging him like we used to?’”
