"Pretty woman, wont you pardon mePretty woman, I couldnt help but see Pretty woman, and you look lovely as can beAre you lonely just like me"
Exactly how I would like to remember her. A wonderful free spirit. I wish we had met. Friends that knew her said her looks were angelic and yet her personality full of fun and down to earth.
This one was not dated nor annotated. The man in front of Sharon is unfamilier, anybody know who he is or where this was taken? It is a candid from a friend of a friend of a friend.
The Jackie-O sunglasses. But Sharon wore them first! In Venice, this is a candid from an acquaintance who was with the photographer. It was marked 'honeymoon trip'. Anymore have more information?
There is a story that Roman and a friend were cruising the strip and saw a beautiful woman. Roman made a remark through the window telling her what a great ass she had; the woman turned it was his own wife, Sharon. Roman acted like he knew all the time. It's doubtful.
From the pensive picture below I think he realized AFTER she died.
It is like Emily said in Thornton Wilder's OUR TOWN:
“Oh, earth, you’re too wonderful for anybody to realize you ”
Then she asks, “Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?—every, every minute?”
Sharon's Ferrari, it was not parked at Cielo that fateful night in August, it was 'in the shop'. Mrs. Tate was told the killers thought Sharon was not home. I have my doubts.
Rather, I think her beauty astonished Manson and she became the tangible icon of everything he would never be able to possess. He mistook her physical looks for the essence of goodness that shown through her.
The Ferrari after it was given or sold to a friend when Sharon died. The picture was sent to me from an on-line acquaintance who hopes to be anonymous. He also lived at Cielo after Antobelli moved out. That's how I found him.
From an Italian magazine shoot. Undated. My husband and I had a hammock exactly like this one on our veranda in Italy. Bamboo or rattan was sold on the side of the streets all along the Appian Way.
Sharon, newly pregnant, London 1968 - around the holidays?
No date - an out-take that was rejected due to the 'fog' on the right side. I liked it. It seems prophetic.
Who is this man with Sharon? When was it taken? Anybody know? A Braizilan website owner was not sure either. He can't remember where he got it.
Sharon loved animals. One of the reasons all the dogs were at the guesthouse that awful night is she was feeding a baby kitten with an eyedropper.
No one knows why they did not bark. They certainly barked the next morning when the police showed. I suspect they were drugged or either Garretson was paid to take them away for awhile.
With Hatami, her favorite photographer and her friend.
With Hatami. It's odd to get a glimpse since he's usually behind the lens. He was there the time she came in contact with Charlie Manson. He may have sealed her fate when he told Manson to exit down the alleyway, behind Cielo. The next day on a flight to Rome she asked about the 'dirty strange man'.
Premier, Paris - Rosemary's Baby.
Party LA for cast of Rosemary's Baby.
We see many black and whites of the wedding in London, but seldom one in color.
Roman said "We were a grotesque sight" He might have been in his Jack Vernon foppish suit, but Sharon could wear a burlap bag and look terrific.
With Mrs. Tate. No date. No place. Probably the Tate's kitchen where Sharon was raised to help her mother with the cooking and cleaning.
Did Sharon realize she was hugging someone who had probably had an affair with Roman?
