Don’t Make Waves (1967) “…the film is often surprisingly funny and full of incidental pleasures.

Philip Lathrop’s bright, sun-kissed cinematography perfectly captures the Malibu vibe and Ms. Tate, in one of her final films (despite a screen credit that reads “Introducing Sharon Tate”), is both enigmatic and vacuous as Carlo’s sexual fantasy; her trampoline scene is a voyeuristic high point.TCM.
