Dean Martin & Sharon Tate On The Wrecking Crew Set

These pictures are from the set of the 1968 Matt Helm spy flick The Wrecking Crew starring Dean Martin and Sharon Tate. I love seeing these two together. They look like they are having a great time. It's such a shame to think of the horrible and tragic end that Sharon would meet on August 9th, 1969.

I actually watched this movie yesterday in honor of Sharon. It is so sad to think of how she died 40 years ago.

wow, what great photos. But how sad to think about poor Sharon! Ugh it makes me feel so angry when I think about what happened to her.

I just have to think about how carefree and gorgeous she looks in these photos.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. That's cool. I wanna watch it again. I hate that so many places though seem to glorify Manson.

Keith said...

Hey Clare. Thanks. Glad you liked these photos. That's how I try to be. I try to focus on Sharon's life and career. I don't wanna think about the horrible details about her death. It makes me so sad and angry.

how sharon tate died is a tragedy.

Amy said...

Such lovely pictures! They both looked so happy. Seeing these images knowing what happened to her almost gives me an eerie feeling, but I definitely think people should remember her for who she was. It's unfortunate that more people associate her name with Manson than with her movies or her career.

Great photos!

Bruce Coltin said...

I agree with everyone. Sadly, she will always be remembered for the way she died.

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers. People love what you are doing. You need to find a way to turn it into a real business.

Seeing photos before someone's death is always a surreal thing, still so, so sad 40 years later......

Planet Mondo said...

Great haul of pics Keith - I found free copy of the Cannoball Run while away on our hols, great performances from Sammi and Dino in it

Keith said...

Hey Savvy. I totally agree with you on that.

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Yeah, she was. It's such a shame because she was just at the start of her career.

Keith said...

Hey Janet. I know what you mean. I loved her in this movie.

Keith said...

Hey Gingey. Thanks. I really appreciate that. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Sonia. Thanks. So true.

Keith said...

Hey Haute. Thanks for commenting. I agree. My mind often drifts to thinking about how she died when I see pictures of her. I think most people are like that. It's a shame though. She should be remembered for her life and career.

Keith said...

Thanks Cathy.

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. I do think most people will always think about how she died when her name is mentioned. It's a shame though.

Thanks. I appreciate that. I do wish I could figure out some sort of real business to do.

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks. Yeah, it is really sad. Knowing that she would be died not long after this really gets to me.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. That's really cool. Dino and Sammy are awesome in Cannonball Run.

Cheryl Lynn said...

These pics are nostalgically beautiful. The tragic end for the beautiful Sharon Tate will remain in our psyches forever. I remember watching these Matt Helm films as a child. My mother loved them and we went to the movies whenever one came out. Even as a kid, I thought Dean was pretty cool.

Great post.

Keith said...

Hey Cheryl Lynn. Thanks for commenting. I'm glad you liked these photos. I think we will always remember what happened to her. That's cool that you saw all of these movies growing up. I love them. Have a great day. Cheers!

insideratbjornborg said...

stunning pictures, the very last one is such a favourite!

Keith said...

Thanks Insider. Glad you enjoyed these. Cheers!

Drake said...

I wished Dino had made the 5th Matt Helm like they palnned to.
Sharon i think helped the franchise get back on track with the Wrecking Crew.
And it was Chuck Norris's first film!

Keith said...

Hey Drake. I know what you mean. I wish they would have made it too. I do think this film helped things get back on track. Sharon definitely played a big part in that.

Erika said...

What fabulous candid shots. Isn't it marvelous to see the two of them just goofing off, being normal people? Gorgeous! :)

GYPSYWOMAN said...

absolutely love these wonderful photos from yesteryear - great shots that i don't remember having seen before - and more special because of sharon tate - a beautiful presence she was and remains so - i can remember the day of the news coming out of the dark tragedy - very lovely post, keith!

Deine kleine Schwester said...

Hey Keith, I hope all is well!
Another great posting with another good advice. I have to see if I can get this movie somewhere here....
The story about the death of Saron Tate is so sad. I can remember when I first heard about it at age of 12 or 13, my brother told me when we were watching the Dance of the Vampire.
The pictures are so lovely, she was so amazing. I enjoyed watching them very much! Thanks for sharing!

never saw the Wrecking Crew but those are some cool pics bro. and it is a shame about Sharon. she was a doll though.

Allison said...

I can't get over how beautiful Sharon was. It is so, so sad to think about = / These pictures are a beautiful memorial to her!

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. I agree. I love seeing shots like this. It's neat to see behind the scenes pictures.

Keith said...

Hey Gypsy. Thanks. I'm glad you liked the photos. I'm happy I could share them with you. I bet it was such a sad day when the news hit that she had been brutally murdered. I've watched specials about what happened, but I wasn't even born yet.

Keith said...

Hey Sofie. Thanks. So glad you liked seeing these photos. It's a really good movie. It was the last of these Matt Helm spy movies that Dean Martin made. Plus it also co-starred Elke Sommer. I hope you get a chance to see this movie. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Wiec. Thanks. It is a good movie. I enjoyed it. Dino and Sharon were so great together in this movie. It is really tragic how things ended for her.

Keith said...

Hey Allison. Thanks. Yeah, she was very beautiful. It's such a shame that her life and career were cut way too short.
