Sharon Tate Promotional Film

A 1966 MGM promotional film about a young Sharon Tate

This is an MGM promotional film made in the mid-60s about a young Sharon Tate, who was then appearing in Eye of the Devil (1966).

Look out for: a young David Hemmings dancing like Austin Powers; producer John Calley; the ‘Guinness¬†discotheques’ (whatever they were);¬†the hilarious tone of the narrator and the bit where David Niven calls Sharon a ‘fabulously good looking bird’. Feminism clearly hadn’t quite caught on yet.

A year after this was released she would marry Roman Polanski and in the summer of 1969 she was killed by the crazed followers of Charles Manson.
