Sharon Tate was one of the sixties most beautiful actresses and here she is in arguably her most famous role, the beautiful troubled star Jennifer North in Valley of the Dolls (1967) Although the film was a huge success commercially  it was critically panned and Sharon remained one of the few stars in the film to go unscathed. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for Most Promising Newcomer. Sadly Sharon would only go on to make three more films after this due to her tragic death, she never gave her talent much credit but I think out of the three films of Sharon’s I’ve seen this is such a beautiful scene and shows such vulnerability, although Sharon herself wanted to be a light comedienne, I think she could have been so much more. Here, friend and costume designer for Valley of the Dolls, William Travilla spoke on Sharon after her death, 

“A gentleness that made you want to protect and take care of her. And she could act, too. Both Mark Robson, the director and I had tears in our eyes, as we watched the rushes of one of her scenes. She was a hard worker. Yes – Sharon could have been a big star.”
