It's very unfortunate that this program is not currently available on VHS or DVD. I was fortunate to get a copy from someone who had taped it off their TV. Actually, it's more like a copy of a copy, so the quality is poor. Nevertheless, "Last Days" goes into great detail about the life and death of actress Sharon Tate, and is a real treasure if you can get your hands on it. Vintage photos, home movies, and gobs of interviews are just some of what's here. There are interviews with celebrity biographers and historians, including the very knowledgeable Greg King, author of the excellent book, "Sharon Tate and the Manson Murders". There are several re-enactments of the events surrounding Sharon's murder, but nothing tasteless or exploitative. Noteworthy is the participation of William Garretson, caretaker of the Cielo Drive property at the time of the murders.
As some consolation, a shorter biography of Sharon Tate is available on-line titled "Sharon Tate: Murdered Innocence". It'a about half as long as "Last Days", but still has quite a bit of information, along with photos, home movies, etc.. "Sharon Tate: Murdered Innocence" was produced by A & E (Arts & Entertainment).
