Ladd gained fame and even teen idol status when she won the role of Chris Munroe on the series Charlie’s Angels, replacing departing Farrah Fawcett. She remained with the series for the rest of its run. She became a bit of a poster queen as well, with a multitude of nice poses, most release through Pro Arts.
Cathy Lee gained some recognition for being the first actress to portray Wonder Woman on the small screen. A year or so, before Lynda Carter made the character her own, Cathy Lee stared in a rather forgettable television movie that disappointed fans and critics offering up a Wonder Woman that wasn’t all that wondrous having lost much of her superhero capabilities.
This nice pose of Cathy Lee is from C/C sales and is from 1984. There is at least one other poster of Cathy Lee out there, a nice red bikini pose, and when I get a good scan, I will make sure to post that, too. 🙂
A really colorful poster, depicting the late David Bowie, released in 1977 by Portal Publications of Corte Madiera, California. It measures 20 x 28. No clue about the history of this poster (if it was used as a promo for some venture or just a really nice poster release, no matter the reason, though, it is still cool.) RIP David, you are missed!
This nice pose is from a photo shoot that Farrah did for Playboy magazine in December of 1978. As you can see there are two versions, which is the first edition I have no clue, but there isn’t much difference between the two, except a bit of cropping at the bottom and the placement of the facsimile signature.
I remember Joe from the 1970s, mostly for his work on television doing commercials (he filmed one or two with Farrah Fawcett before she became a star in her own right) as well as making appearances on various TV series. Of course, his greatest claim to fame is being a football player whose career in the sport began in the early 60s and lasted until his retirement in 1977.
Pro Arts released this pose of Joe in 1977 and as far as I am aware, it is their only Namath release. In my research for this blog, I have only seen this pose offered for sale on EBay a few times, so perhaps it is one of the rarer posters from Pro Arts?
A nice colorful pose of actress and model Randi Oakes was released by C/C sales in 1980. At least one other poster of Oakes is floating around out there somewhere, and when I can find a good scan, I will post it! 🙂
Oakes, an actress and fashion model made a name for herself working as Officer Bonnie Clark on the NBC television series CHiPS from 1979 to 1982.
While working on the 1979 edition of Battle of the Network Stars, she met actor Gregory Harrison (who was playing for the CBS team). The couple married on December 21, 1980 and chose to keep their marriage a secret for several years. She left CHiPs in 1982 with some sources stating the reason as being she wanted to devote more time to her marriage. In 1985, she retired from acting to become a full time mom to the couple’s first child. She and Harrison have been married for 36 years and have four children.
