Once Upon A Time in Hollywood – Painful Revision of Sharon Tate Tragedy?    by Bonnie Carroll

Tarantino's film had no plot, and an ending scene overflowing with more insanely violent Taratino murder optons. The cast of actors, outstanding actors, did an excellent job and included Leo DiCaprio who is always exceptional at his craft, paired with talented Brad Pitt who is still as irrestable today as he was at 26 in “Thelma & Louise.” Margot Robbie, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning and a long list of successful actors all gave their best.

It's a shame all this amazing set design, costuming and marvelous attention to detail on the Hollywood history of the 60s, along with performances by an outstanding cast seems wasted on what may, down the road, become known as the ultimatte Tarantino folly.

As a travelogue on old Hollywood in the 60s the film offered exceptional cinematography and visual detail, but the misplaced violence following two hours of some very slow content finally ending in the audience trying to process a new make believe ending to the horrendous death of actress Sharon Tate just did not work. I lived in Beverly Hills, and many local people there are still haunted by the Benedict Canyon horror that transpired in one of the safest and most peaceful upscale neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

Sharon Tate's mother Doris and sister Debra Tate spent years of their lives reliving the pain of their tragic loss and fighting to keep the Manson murderers in prison. So many people were painfully impacted by the insane violence of this young womans death for many years. As a mother and grandmother I still am.

As I exited the theatre, no one came out looking happy, excited, satisfied or saying it was a great film, many were my age and appeared as stunned and disturbed by the over two hour film as I was. It took me twelve hours to process it all and write this report. I'm now appealing to the movie makers out there to please get some good writers and make some g-r-e-a-t films for audience enjoyment that inspire prople to be the very best they can be and not the worst.

Below is a portion of a Q&A written on Sharon Tate's burial with her baby son.

“So, in answer to your question 'was Sharon Tate burried with her son', Sharon’s baby was swaddled and placed in the crook of her arm in the casket. They were buried together.” Kate Hayer

As for letting Sharon “rest in peace”….I agree that we should stop celebrating her murder and how she was the victim of a mad man’s warped prejudice view of humanity. We should stop the macabre fascination of her murder and stop celebrating her killers. In those respects, yes, let her rest in peace. However, Sharon was so much more than a murder victim—she was adored by her friends, she was a naturally beautiful woman who could speak four languages and was a model. She won a Golden Globe, Miss Tiny Tot Dallas, Homecoming Queen, Miss Automrama, etc…. She was a fashion icon whose beauty secrets are coveted by stars today. Her acting wasn’t spectacular, but she held her own against her co-stars (Tony Curtis, Deborah Kerr, Dean Martin, Patty Duke, etc….). She had a gift for comedy. She was an excellent cook. She wanted to be a fashion designer when she was younger. Sharon was a loving, living, loved human being. THAT is what should be celebrated.

***Although I do not consider myself an expert on Sharon Tate, I have done research on her and her horrible, brutal death. I will look high and low for answers to all questions regarding her. I guess you can say it has to do with the fact that my birthday is 08 August 1969. My first day on earth was Sharon’s last.*** Writer, Kate Hayer, Ouora
