"The Valley Of The Dolls" Babes

The Valley Of The Dolls
Barbara Parkins
Sharon Tate
Patty Duke
 
The movie was based on "The Valley Of The Dolls" novel written by Jacqueline Susann and published in 1967.  It has gone on to sell over 30 million copies and paved the way for writers like Jackie Collins.  Both the book and the movie were "events" in a period unlike today that "event books/movies" were rare.

Sharon Tate & Husband Roman Polanski
 
Sharon Tate might have been a minor footnote in cinema
history had it not been for the way she died.
On August 9th, 1969, a pregnant Sharon Tate and 4 others were massacred in the home of Sharon and her husband Roman Polanski (Director/"Rosemary's Baby") by members of
the Charles Manson family. Polanski was not home that evening.
