One of the most popular shows of the 1980s was Magnum P.I. starring Tom Selleck in the role of Thomas Sullivan Magnum, a private detective who lived in a guest house on a 200 acre beach front estate (called Robin’s Nest) owned by Robin Masters, a successful author who is never seen on the series, but whose voice had been heard several times (provided by Orson Welles). The series ran on CBS from 1980-1988 and made Selleck into a heart throb and teen idol. He had a variety of poster poses on the market and the poster highlighted in this post is from 1982 and is from C/C Sales.
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 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.
