Sharon Tate Visited Her Husband on the Set of His Film ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ in New York in 1967

Rosemary’s Baby is a 1968 American psychological horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, based on Ira Levin’s 1967 novel of the same name. The film stars Mia Farrow as a young (soon pregnant) wife living in Manhattan who comes to suspect that her elderly neighbors are members of a Satanic cult and are grooming her in order to use her baby for their rituals. The film’s supporting cast includes John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer, Maurice Evans, Ralph Bellamy, Patsy Kelly, Angela Dorian, and, in his feature film debut, Charles Grodin.

The film deals with themes related to paranoia, women’s liberation, Christianity (Catholicism), and the occult. While it is primarily set in New York City, the majority of principal photography for Rosemary’s Baby took place in Los Angeles throughout late 1967.

The film was released on June 12, 1968 by Paramount Pictures, and was a box office success, grossing over $30 million in the United States. It received almost universal acclaim and was nominated for several accolades, including multiple Golden Globe Award nominations and two Academy Award nominations, winning Best Supporting Actress (for Ruth Gordon) and the Golden Globe in the same category.

Since its release, Rosemary’s Baby has been widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all time. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress, who deemed it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

These photos captured Sharon Tate who visited her husband Roman Polanski on the set of his film Rosemary’s Baby at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York City on August 28, 1967. Polanski reportedly wanted Tate to play the lead, but Mia Farrow was cast instead.
