Charles Manson documentary scene shot in West Virginia town

A new documentary about Charles Manson may feature a scene shot in a section of Martinsburg that looks a lot like San Francisco.

Pamela Haynes, director of the West Virginia Film Office, says producers provided reference photos of the Haight-Ashbury district, where Manson spent time in the 1960s.

She says it was the spitting image of North Queen Street, where a film crew worked Monday.
Sirens Media is producing the film for MSNBC. Faith Gaskins, the re-creation producer, says other scenes have been shot in Jessup and Silver Spring, Md.

The untitled film is expected to air next year, the 40th anniversary of the murders of actress Sharon Tate and six other people by Manson followers.Manson is played by Charlie Davidson, an actor from Silver Spring.
