Dian’s claim to fame is as an ex model (former winner of the 1965 Miss World USA Pageant) who was a prize presenter on the popular game show The Price is Right from 1975-93. She caused a bit of stir when she accused host Bob Barker of sexual harassment and filed suit against him in 1994, a year after she left the game show. Parkinson said that for the last three years of her stint on the show, she was forced to engage in a relationship with Barker (which resulted in a pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage) who threatened to fire her if she refused. Barker denied the accusation and said that the relationship was consensual (even claiming that it was Parkinson herself who actively pursued and seduced him) and eventually the suit was dropped in 1995 with Parkinson claiming it was taking a toll on her health and pocketbook.
Anyway, enough of the bad stuff, eh, what concerns us is the nice 1987 poster of Dian released by Starmakers. A bit of rarer poster to find, but one well worth adding to your collection. Oh, and you can see “more” of Dian, if you so desire, by getting copies of the December 1991 and May 1993 issues of Playboy magazine.
Pro Arts released this not often seen poster of Margaux Hemingway in 1977. It measures the usual 20 x 28.
Granddaughter of celebrated writer Ernest Hemingway, Margaux, gained popularity as a model in the 1970s appearing on a multitude of magazine covers including Elle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar to name just a few. She started her acting career in the 1976 cult film Lipstick along with her younger sister, Mariel. She would go on to make appearances in 16 films between 1976 and 1996.
Sadly, throughout her life, she suffered from depression, alcoholism, bulimia. She would die of a overdose of phenobarbital on July 1, 1996, just one day shy of the 35th anniversary of her grandfather’s death.
One of several Cheryl Ladd posters released via Pro Arts. Ladd gained her fame and 70s female teen idol status thanks to starring in the series Charlie’s Angels as Kris Monroe, little sister to Jill Monroe, played by Farrah Fawcett, who left the show in hopes of becoming a movie star, which didn’t pan out as hoped.
This pose is a take-off on the classic Rita Hayworth pin-up pose found in a 1941 edition of Life magazine.
A rather nice pose of Cheryl released in 1977. This is the first Pro Arts poster release for Cheryl, the second would be the pink bikini poster from 1978.

Lovely pose of Ann Margret from Pro Arts, released in 1978 titled “Ann-Margret” and number 14-608.
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.
