Director Peter Bogdanovich is still haunted by the murder of his actress lover DOROTHY STRATTEN by her jealous husband 21 years ago.

The WHAT'S UP DOC film-maker was almost 40 when he started dating the 19-year-old PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR, but he has never forgiven himself for the night she secretly visited her estranged husband PAUL SNIDER to discuss her feelings for Bogdanovich.

Snider was so incensed he shot her dead and then turned the gun on himself.

He says, "All that haunts me. It doesn't really stop. I've been in therapy but you don't ever get over something like that. You just learn to live with it."
