Sharon Tate's sister will sign books at Park Road

Sharon Tate's sister is coming to town.

To commemorate her older sister's life, younger sister Debra Tate has put together a collection of photographs and reminiscences in hopes that people will begin to remember Sharon more for her life, her beauty, her talent and her cultural impact than for her brutal death 45 years ago this past August at age 26 and 8-1/2 months pregnant.

Married to Paris-born director Roman Polanski, who writes the introduction to "Sharon Tate: Recollection" (Running Press, $30), Tate acted in "Valley of the Dolls," "Eye of the Devil," and "Fearless Vampire Killers." 

The book includes original quotes from such celebrities as Jane Fonda, Patty Duke, Joan Collins, Viva and Trina Turk and retrospective quotes from the likes of Truman Capote, Richard Avedon and Mia Farrow. As well as many photos, including some from the Tate family album. 

Unbelievably, the gorgeous Sharon Tate would now be 71.

By the way, if you did not read the riveting profile of Polanski when it appeared in The New Yorker on Dec. 14, 2009, read it here:

Debra Tate Will Sign Books

Sharon Tate was a beautiful lady, but that's about as far as any "talent" went. She played in a few Grade B films and married Polanski, a marriage that wouldn't have lasted another couple of years. If she were alive today, she'd be virtually unknown or a cult figure along the lines of Raquel Welch. She was a woman for her times, but she'd be irrelevant today.

Why now? Why 45 years later? Need some $$$?

The lily white pale 90 yr old female needs a tanning bed or a 2.95 bottle of Clairol hair darkener or both as white hair and white skin cause a blinding glare that requires sun glasses.
Put some color in that face and hair for a more healthy look.

She accomplished more in her short life than you ever would ever hope to achieve in your pathetic lifetime.

"but she'd be irrelevant today"

Not even close to how irrelevant you and your stupid uninformed comments are.

"Anonymous" ah the irony.
