So far all the Phil Spector murder trial has really taught us is that Phil Spector likes to wave guns in people’s faces, Phil Spector’s lawyer has been a bit ill and Phil Spector is the finest connoisseur of practical lesbian-styled wigs in the land.But one question had been left unanswered – what was Phil Spector like on the night that B-movie actress Lana Clarkson died from a gunshot to the mouth? That question was neatly answered in part yesterday by Rommie Davis, a friend of Phil Spector who was out with the music producer on the evening that Lana Clarkson died. According to Rommie Davis, Phil Spector was combing alcohol and medication that night or, as she termed it, “a lethal combination.” Reports that the utterance of word “lethal” was accompanied in court by a lightning strike and a burst of sinister-sounding organ music are still unconfirmed.

Inside the diminutive body of Phil Spector reside two men, according to witnesses at his murder trial.One is a sweet, courtly gentleman whose bygone-era approach to wooing women includes dates arranged by his secretary, long-stemmed roses and pleasant evenings that end with a kiss on the cheek.

The other is a nasty drunk with a filthy mouth and a habit of sticking guns in the faces of women who refuse to spend the night with him.
This portrait of a music industry Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde emerged over the past two weeks as a string of women who dated Spector in the 1980s and 1990s recounted the rise and fall of their relationships with him.

The witnesses described their reactions to his gun threats as equal parts terror and astonishment because, they said, the threat came from a man as well-known to them for his chivalrous kindness as he was for producing stars such as The Beatles and Tina Turner.

Pressing her index finger to her cheek to mimic a gun barrel, a former assistant to Phil Spector testified Monday the famous music producer and murder defendant threatened to shoot her in 1989.

“He put it all over me,” Dianne Ogden, on the verge of tears, said as she moved her finger from her right cheek to her nose to her forehead.

Spector, she said, ordered her to the bedroom of his home, then in Pasadena, because, Ogden said, “he wanted to rape me.”

Spector, the producer of records for the Beatles, Ike and Tina Turner and the Righteous Brothers, is charged with murdering actress Lana Clarkson, who was shot in the mouth at his Alhambra mansion Feb. 3, 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $1 million bail.

Ogden, who said she had been a friend and part-time assistant to Spector, is the second woman to testify that the music producer threatened her with a gun when she tried to leave his home.
