Cheryl (Ladd) Lace a 1978 Pro Arts Poster

cheryl-ladd_lace-vert

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.

Joe Namath’s 1977 Pro Arts Poster

joe-namath-pro-arts-poster-vert

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?
