Photo Comparison of the Week, A Viewer Can't Get Enough of Sharon in FVK, and a Very Hot Ebay Item

Photo Comparison of the Week:

Actress Ali Larter is reminiscent of Sharon in this photo:

Can't Get Enough of Sharon?  Apparently this viewer only had eyes for her during his viewing of "The Fearless Vampire Killers":

For a quick rundown of his comments here are some:

"I'd only known Sharon Tate as a name. I'm not going to claim that she's the greatest actress who ever lived or anything, but there sure was something appealing about her.  My eyes were a little angry every time Sharon Tate wasn't on the screen. But my eyes needed to calm down since most of her scenes seemed to take place in bathtubs.  And after a bit, I really stopped caring about the plot so that I could focus on Sharon Tate."

We agree that Sharon was something special! ;)

And here is a rare video of Roman and Sharon offered on ebay now that sounds interesting and is quite a hot item! :

Rare Roman Polanski Video from 1968 with Sharon Tate

“The New Cinema” a unique 15 minute 1968 tape featuring top Hollywood performers, producers and directors, including Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, Dustin Hoffman, Andy Warhol, Peter Fonda, Mia Farrow, Francis Ford Coppola George Lucas, Michael Pollard, Dick Gregory and veteran actress Dame Edith Evans, all informally discussing changes in movie and TV production, predicting future TV and big screen developments, various cultural changes, additional violence in films, and the participants’ individual general philosophies of film making. The film is narrated by Paul Winfield.

This fascinating informal conversation among top film personalities was filmed at the Tate-Polanski home only months before the unthinkable 1969 “Manson Murders” led by Charles Manson and his Manson “family” cult’s 1969 murder spree tragically taking the life of Sharon Tate, occurring on this very same spot!

When the premiere of this film was held in a private screening room for top film producers, directors and performers, Hollywood columnist Rex Reed wrote “The Beverly Hills Hotel screening room could hardly contain the excitement.. ‘The New Cinema’ may revolutionize television.”
Among accurate predictions of things to come are included: massive use of “the split screen” technique and rapid film cuts -- none of which had yet been incorporated into films to any degree.

This unusual film was never packaged and distributed commercially, and has only been seen by a few people. Both of the producers, Buckey and McDermott have passed away and this is one of the few existing copies of the tape. It is currently in the possession of Wink Blair, President of Wink Inc. Public Relations. Page Buckey gave the tape to her when he was serving as an associate of hers at Wink Inc. Pat McDermott, co-producer of the tape is also now deceased.
