Trivia

The scenes of Sharon Tate and David Hemmings dancing in a London discotheque were filmed by legendary cameraman and cinematographer Albert Maysles. There exists a longer version of this sequence as well as on-set footage from Dance of the Vampires (1967) that have been part of a traveling festival of films made by the Maysles Brothers in recent years. Albert Maysles has also gone on record saying that Sharon Tate was the sexiest woman he ever filmed. See more »

All Eyes on Sharon Tate (1967)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This short is basically a promotional piece for MGM's EYE OF THE DEVIL, the J. Lee Thompson film that featured David Niven, Deborah Kerr, Daving Hemmings and Sharon Tate. Tate is the main focus as we learn how she got her start in acting and then we get some behind the scenes stuff showing her getting ready to work. We see Tate in the make-up chair, learning her lines and then doing a couple scenes. The featurette also wants to make sure people know how "hip" she is so we see her off the set at a disco (with Hemmings) as well as other spots around London. There's no question that in 1967 people would view this short one way but today it's seen as something completely different. The film talks about the bright future of the young actress but everyone knows what happened to Tate so that really makes you see this in a different light. Overall it's a very impressive little short as it's well-produced and there's no denying that it does a fantastic job showing off Tate. I'm sure that black dress showing off her body wasn't an accident as Thompson talks about what makes her so special as a person and an actress. We even hear from Tate who comments on what she wants to do and where she sees herself going forward.
