Christina Applegate’s 1987 Poster

Christina is probably best associated with the role of Kelly Bundy, a role she played for 10 years, on the popular series Married With Children.  When the series ended in 1987, she went on to create an outstanding career in films, television and stage, winning a Primetime Emmy for her guest appearance in an episode of Friends.   She was also nominated for a Tony award for Best Actress in a Musical for her 2005 performance in Sweet Charity.

This poster (one of several) is from 1987 and is from O.S.P. Publishing.

Heather Thomas of The Fall Guy’s Red Swimsuit Poster

Heather, best known for her work in the 80s TV series The Fall Guy, starring Lee Majors, had several posters on the market in the 80s that showed of her nice form.   As you can see from the info provided, this pose is from 1983 and is a Starmakers release.

Pia Zadora’s 1982 Poster

Actress and singer, Pia, released this poster in 1982 through Zadora Enterprises.   It measures roughly 22″ x 34″ and is a pose that doesn’t show up on Ebay that often.    Pia, as an actress, is best known for  Butterfly (1982) and The Lonely Lady (1983) for which she received back to back  RAZZIE Awards as worst actress.     While her acting abilities are in question, Pia is really a fairly decent singer especially when she follows Frank Sinatra’s advice to “sing the Standards”.   Check out her website to get a sample of her new CD release.

Farrah’s “Mrs. Majors” Pro Arts Poster from 1977

A nice Pro Arts poster of Farrah released in 1977 when she was still Mrs. (Lee) Majors.   I believe there were at lease five different posters released via Pro Arts of Farrah during 1977 (the other four: Farrah Flower, L.A. Farrah, Farrah Paisley and Super Farrah).  I have no clue in what order they were released or how well they did sales wise.

When looking on EBay, I don’t seem to find this offered for sale as often as her other poses.  Perhaps it was a limited release, or maybe only available for purchase through her fan club,  I honestly don’t know.     I don’t recall ever seeing this for sale at any of the stores I was able to frequent (and purchase posters at) during my childhood when I was actively collecting posters and to be honest, I never knew of its existence until years ago when I started gawking on EBay for posters.

Pamela Sue Martin as Nancy Drew Pro Arts Poster

A nice poster of Pamela Sue Martin as her TV alter-ego, Nancy Drew from 1977.

The series, The Hard Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries ran on ABC television from January 30, 1977 to January 14, 1979.   The Hardy Boys and Nancy had their own segment and would alternate each week.  By the time the second season rolled around, producers had Nancy and The Hardy Boys (Shaun Cassidy as Joe Hardy and Parker Stevenson as Frank Hardy) solving mysteries together.   Pamela left mid way through the  second season and the role of Nancy was recast with actress Janet Louis Johnson.By the time the third season rolled around,  Nancy was just a pleasant memory as the character was dropped and the show was retitled simply The Hardy Boys.   The name change brought some big changes to the characters as well,  Joe and Frank now worked for the Justice Department which was a big leap from teen sleuths on the first and second seasons.

Bo Derek’ Wet Shirt Poster Pose

bo derek1979 poster of Bo Derek, the woman who dethroned Farrah Fawcett as premere sex symbol for the late 70s and into the 80s.   This is a Bo Derek Inc, Standford Blum Enterprises poster release.  This is one of at least four posters of Bo on the market here in the US (I don’t know how many posters, if any, were released into foreign markets).   Although, I am not sure, I suspect, highly, that this photo was taken by Bo’s hubby, John.
