Sharon Tate in 'The Fearless Vampire Killers'
Sharon Tate (1943 - 1969)
Mrs. Roman Polanski
The Fearless Vampire Killers, or: Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are in My Neck (1967) [Sarah Shagal]: Bitten on the throat and gradually drained of most of her blood (off-screen) by Ferdinand Mayne; she dies from her blood loss shortly after Roman Polanski and Jack MacGowran rescue her from Ferdinand's castle, but immediately comes back to life as a vampire and bites Roman on the throat. (Played for comic effect.)

Valley of the Dolls (1967) [Jennifer North]: Commits suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills in her bedroom, after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her body is shown afterwards (completely covered by a sheet) being carried out on a stretcher while Jacqueline Susann and some other reporters question Barbara Parkins about Sharon's death.
