Jay Sebring is reported to have been wearing Sharon's "college" ring when he was murdered. He was, in fact, wearing her Vicenza American High School class ring. Sharon never went to college. See more »
A big "+" about this particular biography on actress Sharon Tate is that it's readily available on-line. "E!" also produced a biography that was much longer (The Last Days of Sharon Tate), but it's currently out of print. "Sharon Tate: Murdered Innocence" was produced by A & E for their "Biography" series, and gives a very well-rounded view of this tragic 60's beauty. Tracing her humble roots as the oldest of 3 sisters in a very mobile military family, the program follows Sharon through her high school years, including photos, some footage of her as a cheerleader at Vicenza American High School, and some insightful interviews with former classmates. Roman Polonski, Mia Farrow, Martin Ransohoff and others in the television/film industry also discuss their experiences and first impressions of Sharon. In spite of the dark title, "Murdered Innocence" doesn't dwell overly long on Sharon's tragic murder, but gives equal time to the positive aspects of her life. The last part of the program chronicles efforts by Sharon's mom and sisters to preserve Sharon's memory, to keep her killers behind bars, and to protect the rights of families of murder victims. Packed with interviews, vintage photos, home movies, film clips and a few trailers, "Sharon Tate: Murdered Innocence" is a very satisfying video for fans of Sharon Tate...and very affordable.
