Personal Quote:

I honestly don't understand the big fuss made over nudity and sex in films. It's silly. On TV, the children can watch people murdering each other, which is a very unnatural thing, but they can't watch two people in the very natural process of making love. Now, really, that doesn't make any sense, does it? See more »

Trivia:

Was originally cast in the role of Christian Rudd in The Cincinnati Kid (1965) by producer Martin Ransohoff, who had her under contract. She was replaced with Tuesday Weld by the film's director, Norman Jewison, after Sam Peckinpah was fired several days into filming by Ransohoff. Ransohoff was dismayed by Peckinpah's desire to shoot the film in black and white and to feature Tate in a nude scene. See more »
