when anybody asked who my favorite was: Jaclyn Smith - the young actress that played "Kelly Garrett" on the show-
was to me always the
back in the days when that one with the red bathing suit was all but ubiquitious.
plus I guess I just prefer brunettes anyway. To each their own... I'll take this one, no problem lads:
Enjoy your weekend, FReeper patriots-
Haven’t we done this one twice already in as many weeks?
I prefer blondes or light brown hair but I will be happy to make an exception for Jaclyn.
Now that I think about it, I much preferred Mary Ann to Ginger.
I wonder what girl she had a crush on?
She was definitely my favorite Angel too. Easily the sexiest of the three. However, the hands down sexiest girl on TV back then was Valerie Bertinelli.
ping for later....
No question, Jaclyn Smith is one of the most beautiful women of the baby boomer period.
The only reason — IMHO — that she didn’t break through into the top rank of female stars is that she didn’t do humor quite well enough.
I could be completely wrong about that. She may be terrific at humor, and my observation may be totally off-base. I can think of another reason why she didn’t “break through,” but I won’t say it here.
What? Did she ‘bat for the other team’? News to me...
Amen brother. Amen.
Had a crush on her and Connie Sellecca.
Cheryl Ladd was also very biteable. (grin)
Ditto on that vote for Jaclyn Smith. By far the best of the Angels.
Also, Pamela Sue Martin from Nancy Drew Mysteries. Rooowr!
Julie Newmar, Jaclyn Smith, and Diana Rigg. ...for starters.
I think all 3 of the original “Charlies Angels” were Southern girls. Two from Texas and one from Alabama.
Julie Newmar's figure was one of the best in the history of Hollywood; only Virginia Mayo and MM (when she was in her 20s) could compete with her in that department, and then only marginally. She's also very smart; too smart, maybe, to really be a great actress. Her father was an engineer, her mother, a Ziegfield girl.
She's about 15 years older than Jaclyn, maybe 20.
I was quite a bit younger than 15, but
My first TV sweethearts were:
Tuesday Weld - The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis
Marta Kristin - Lost in Space
But 15 years old (1973) it had to be:
Susan Dey - The Partidge Family
