Letter handwritten and signed in pencil by Tate as a young child, urging her
grandmother to come for a visit
Autograph Letter signed in pencil: "Love Sharon", 1 page, 6¼x9¼. To "Dear Nannie" [Mrs.
Grace Tate]. In full (child's spelling errors in original): "I love you I want you to com down
and we will go to Canada and you will go to but you will have to com down on a train.
11116 Kline St [her address in Tacoma, Washington]." Sharon Tate (1943-1969), a beauty
pageant winner and model, appeared on TV before winning major roles in three films
released in 1967: Eye of the Devil, The Fearless Vampire Killers and Valley of the
Dolls. While none of these movies were critical successes, some reviewers praised Tate's
potential for stardom. Tate herself had no illusions about her early acting skills, but was working
hard to improve. She earned good reviews working with Dean Martin in The Wrecking Crew
(1969). Another film, The Thirteen Chairs, was released posthumously. In 1968, Tate married
film director Roman Polanski. On August 8, 1969, Tate - 8½ months pregnant - and
four of her friends were brutally murdered at her Benedict Canyon (LA) home by
members of Charles Manson's cult "family." In the months before Manson and his gang
were caught, there were rampant rumors about the motives for the murder, and many
Hollywood celebrities installed new security systems in their homes. When Tate's convicted
assailants were nearing eligibility for parole in 1982, her mother Doris lobbied successfully
to amend California's legal code to allow victim's impact statements, and was the first
person to testify under the new law. As a young girl Sharon Tate, an Army brat, moved
frequently and had trouble making friends. She developed a shyness which many later mistook
for aloofness. This childhood letter, written from Tacoma, Washington, where her father
was stationed in the US Army, is a touching glimpse of the ill-fated actress as a young
child. left corners creased. Lightly toned and creased. 1 vertical 3 horizontal fold creases.
