"A 'Star' manufactured"
Sharon Tate is the last prefabricated star that cinema offers us. As the cinema raised its status as an independent art, media in the cultivation of star-system, which for many years encouraged the economy of Hollywood. Nowadays more and more people go to the cinema attracted by the name of the director and not by the stars in the movie, but most stars are manufactured. Half a million dollars was the cost to manufacture Miss Sharon Tate, who acted with pseudonyms while the operation was being carried out. Because Sharon Tate has not jumped to the rank of stardom from anonymity, she's called a "comer" -a recruit. She was recruited by producer Martin Ransohoff, who has spent thirty months profiling his Galatea. Sharon Tate's Father, an Army Intelligence Colonel, was opposed to his daughter's film career but after being advised by Richard Beymer and Martin Ritt, she did some tests for television. She was accepted for the Petticoat Junction series. The chief executive of the production was Martin Ransohoff. He gave the order: "Sign a contract to that girl!" Sharon explains "I thought he was referring to another girl, I was unattractive that day, wearing an orange suit with big pockets and my hair was in complete disarray!" but she was the right girl. She signed a contract with the firm for seven years and then the manufacturing started.
Lessons of singing, dance, physical culture, interpretation .. Acting in small roles on the T.V. as a training plan. She wore a black wig and hid under a pseudonym. Ransohoff had arranged for the public not to discover her until he was willing. All this cost half a million dollars. She was in her first movie "13", along with David Niven and Deborah Kerr. Sharon Tate could bear her name and her long blond hair. She embodied the role of Odile, a French girl with magical powers she used against David Niven and his wife, in the fiction of the film, Deborah Kerr. Soon after, the great director: Roman Polanski called her for his horror film "Your Teeth Are in My Neck".
