VIDEO: 1960s Icons - Sharon Tate & Natalie Wood

Hi readers,

A tribute to Natalie Wood and Sharon Tate. Enjoy!

Uploaded by SentienceStudio

Sharon Tate and Natalie Wood were two B-movie actresses from the 1960s. Although not nearly so iconic as Marilyn Monroe was for the 1950s both still perfectly iterated their time and place.

Both met untimely deaths, Tate at the hands of the Manson Family and Wood in a mysterious boating accident.

This song situates them in their milieu and imagines their travails as attractive women on the edge of social and cultural transition. Who knows what they had to do, what they had to put themselves through and the compromises they were required to make, in order to sustain personal and professional momentum?

This song also projects them forward in time and derives a moral from their sad tale.
