SHARON TATE TRIBUTE
Double Feature: VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, 1967, 20th Century Fox, 123 min. Based on Jacqueline Susann’s runaway bestseller, director Mark Robson’s bitchy, booze-angst-sex-drugs-fueled cult classic cautions against the perils of show business. The tragically beautiful Sharon Tate was nominated for a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer in her role as B-movie queen Jennifer.
THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS, 1967, Warner Bros., 108 min., Dir. Roman Polanski. Jack McGowran is perfectly cast as the ancient, screw-loose Professor Abronsius who, with his harebrained sidekick, Alfred (Polanski, doing double duty), is on the hunt for vampires in the snowy Carpathian mountains. Their pursuit shifts into high gear once Alfred’s admired-from-afar love interest, the inn-keeper’s daughter (Sharon Tate), is kidnapped by the undead Count von Krolock (Ferdy Mayne). Introduction by Debra Tate, who will sign her book Sharon Tate: Recollection in the lobby at 6:30 PM.
One of the Most Beautiful Women of a Generation Captured in All-New Book SHARON TATE: RECOLLECTION
Written by Her Sister Debra Tate
Never-Before-Seen Images and Insight from Hollywood Insiders
Foreword by Sharon’s Husband, Director Roman Polanski
Considered by many to be the most beautiful woman of her generation, actress and
model Sharon Tate remains a fascinating pop icon and a poster child for the 1960s. And
now, an all-new book, Sharon Tate: Recollection (June 10, 2014; ISBN-10: 076245234X;
Trade Cloth; $30.00; also available as an E-Book, ISBN-13: 978-0762452347), written by
Sharon’s sister, Debra Tate, showcases her beauty, talent, and cultural impact for a new
generation of admirers.
What struck most about Sharon were her gentle nature and the sheer perfection of
her face, but she was far more than just a beauty. The few films she made during her brief
career, including Valley of the Dolls, Eye of the Devil, and The Fearless Vampire Killers, have
secured her position as a Hollywood legend. Over forty years since her last film, Sharon’s
spirit and charisma lives strong in the memories of those who knew her best, and her style
continues to inspire the worlds of fashion, beauty, art, and film. The book is a one-of-a-kind
celebration of Sharon’s life and career, her influence as a fashion icon throughout the world,
and in effect presents a sociological portrait of the 1960s—its youth culture, the sexual
revolution, the rise of independent cinema, and Hollywood’s changing studio system. In this
photo book, Sharon Tate’s story emerges through quotes and short essays—recollections—
by her sister, Debra Tate, as well as by those who knew and have been influenced by her.
What emerges from these pages is a stunning tribute to an unforgettable life, including:
A foreword note by Sharon’s husband Roman Polanski;
An introduction and remembrances by Sharon’s sister, author Debra Tate;
Previously unseen childhood photos from the Tate family album;
Original quotes and recollection essays written specially for this book by Jane Fonda,

Sommer, Joan Collins, Viva, Tony Scotti and Trina Turk;

Dunne, Warren Beatty, Mia Farrow, Orson Welles, Barbara Parkins, George
Harrison, David Niven, Deborah Kerr, Yul Brynner and Kirk Douglas; and
