We have classic actresses, actors, rock stars, and athletes from the ages. The babes and heroes of the late century are all on display here. Take a look at the following stars and be ready to be taken back in time.
Muhammad Ali was a heavy-hitting boxer, and one of the most recognizable and influential athletes of all time. He held belts and titles and achieves great success in the boxing ring, and he was also a vocal advocate and activist during the civil rights movement.
The combination of these actions turned him into one of the most significant figures in sports from the 20th century.
Here we see Ann Margret doing what she loved. This Swedish-American dancer, actress, and singer was always infatuated with motorcycles. If you remember her from the silver screen, you undoubtedly have seen her riding one.
In fact, she was even a model for Triumph Motorcycles’ ads from the 60s. At the turn of the century, she was thrown from a motorcycle in Minnesota and suffered a fractured shoulder and three broken ribs.
Rita Hayworth is known for being a great dancer and actress. One of her more famous performances was her role in Gilda, a 1946 film.
She was also one of the top pin-up girls in WWII for the GI’s. This stunning photo was taken in California in 1940, right in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Wearing the famous Bond bikinis, we see three Bond Girls walking hand-in-hand. From left to right we have Claudine Auger, Martine Beswick, and Luciana Paluzzi – all famous for their roles accompanying the lead man in the Bond movies.
This particular shot was a promo for the 1965 James Bond film Thunderball.
Daredevil Evel Knievel is captured here during his 1974 stunt. He’s spotted wearing his infamous leather jumpsuit. This stunt was an attempt to rocket across the mile-wide Snake River Canyon.
In this stunt, his parachute went off too early, and he was sent crashing into the canyon. Luckily, he walked away with only bruises and scrapes.
Next up is a gorgeous actress and animal lover Audrey Hepburn. She’s pictured here sharing a laugh with a donkey onset one of her films War and Peace in 1955.
You might recognize her from Breakfast at Tiffany’s – perhaps her most recognizable role that led to her infamy.
Star Wars Set
The force is definitely with us in this picture. This photograph shows Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford during their press tour after Star Wars: A New Hope was released.
This picture was taken in 1977 during their visit with the Denver Post. This stop was one of many for this iconic trio.
Next up is a stunning picture of Greta Garbo. She was an actress from Sweden that really showed what Hollywood glamor was all about. Many people attributed Hollywood’s fashion trends to her pioneering.
Despite her acting career, she enjoyed a private life away from the press and publications.
Here we see a very young Hugh Hefner alongside some of his talents from the time. Hefner, of course, was the leading mind and founder behind the Playboy enterprise.
This was taken in his mansion in 1966, and the Playboy Bunnies pictured near him are enjoying their day at the Playboy Mansion.
Disney Mermaids Lagoon
If you remember Disneyland from the mid-60s, you might remember the now-disband Submarine Voyage. This attraction from 65 to 67 featured beautiful mermaids lounging in the middle of a lagoon.
The sad news is that the chlorine in the water led to some skin and hair issues for the ladies. If you were lucky enough to see this in person, you certainly never forgot it.
Robert Shaw On Jaws Set
Here we can see Robert Shaw wishing he had a bigger boat on the set of Jaws. This cult-classic movie set revolutionized the film world afterward. Shaw played Captain Quint in the movie, a shark hunter looking to kill the very shark he’s seen next to in this shot.
Legendary funnyman Robin Williams is shown here sharing a laugh with someone out of frame. Of course, how could you not laugh at such an iconic and brilliant comedy genius? This picture was taken during filming Mork & Mindy in 1978, which is the show that propelled his great career.
These three gorgeous gals are joining together for a promotional picture of their show Flying High. We see Pat Klous, Connie Sellecca, and Kathryn Witt posing side-by-side, showing plenty of leg.
Their characters were flight attendants in their comedy-drama series that was canceled much too early.
This behind-the-scenes shot of M*A*S*H shows the iconic cast of this hit television series. It was a comedy-drama that showcased a staff of doctors in South Korea during the Korean War.
To this day, M*A*S*H is still one of the highest-rated U.S. television shows in history, boasting an impressive 11-year run.
An almost too-young looking James Spader and Robert Downey Jr. pose on the set of Tuff Turf. It’s hard to recognize these fellas without the extra scruff. This 1985 movie also featured a former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards as the love interest of Spader.
