TV Girls I Had a Crush On When I Was 15: Jaclyn Smith on 'Charlie's Angels'~
Reaganite Republican ^ | October 21, 2011 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 10/21/2011 11:30:58 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

When monster smash hit Charlie's Angels first hit the tube in Fall of '76, I sure didn't have to think long

when anybody asked who my favorite was: Jaclyn Smith - the young actress that played "Kelly Garrett" on the show-

was to me always the 

most heavenly Angel, hands down...

This was for reasons I was largely unable to convey to those with Farrah posters in their bedrooms,

back in the days when that one with the red bathing suit was all but ubiquitious. 

But the somehow Jaclyn Smith just had a sexy vibe, bit more real/natural-look than Farrah (smile/hair), imho-

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-

Yeah, Judy Landers was great, but personally I found her sister Audrey to be a wee bit hotter:

[Julie Newmar is] also very smart; too smart, maybe, to really be a great actress.

Same goes for Jill St. John (Jill Oppenheim). 162 IQ. Bad actress, but man was she beautiful. Check out the episode "Barbary Red" on The Big Valley, Season 1. She guest starred as the character Barbary Red, and was probably in her early 20s at the time. ...a few years before she became (relatively) famous as the Bond girl in Diamonds Are Forever. Jaw-dropping beauty.

Oaky, here's a three part quiz:

1. Gilligan's Island: Ginger or Mary Ann?

2. WKRP: Bailey or Jennifer?

3. Three's Company: Chrissy or Janet?

I came across a re-run of Charlie's Angels a few weeks back. A scene with just one of the "Angels" in it, Kate Jackson, was the first thing I saw. I remember thinking, man, she is really pretty, why was most of the attention always paid to the other Angels (Kate was generally considered the brainy, not quite so glamorous Angel).

Then the next scene had Kate, Farrah and Jaclyn in it..........oh, right, that's why Kate was the "brainy, not as glamorous one". As they say, everything is relative.

Yes, I thought of Ms. St. John a few seconds after I hit the "Post" button. I've only seen her in the Bond movie. She was very, very pretty.

I believe it was in a scene in Diamonds Are Forever that the villian gazes at her -- as she walks away from him in a bikini -- and says, under his breath, "if only they were brains." Funny irony. I suspect Broccoli had the line put in on purpose. Inside joke.

lol...I thought of that scene/line as well (Charles Gray as Blofeld making the comment). No doubt it was an inside joke by Broccoli.

I also remember St. John from the bad sci-fi film The Lost World (around 1960) when she was very young.

After Diamonds I can't recall seeing her anywhere.

Didn't she do one or two movies with Dean Martin or with the Rat Pack? Would've been before Diamonds.

Let's see...

Oh, I guess I'm thinking of Tony Rome, in which she appeared opposite Frank Sinatra. 1967. Quite a time in Hollywood.

I think one of the things about the very smart actresses is that they don't make as many stupid life choices as the more typical Hollywood cuties. As a result, they have more financial and personal options as they age, and they aren't willing to put up with the degree of Hollywood nonsense that the dumber ones, who have little choice in the matter.

That, and the fact that smart people find it more difficult to let go of self-consciousness -- their "inner eye" never blinks -- and this interferes with their ability to really give themselves entirely to a part.

I think Jaclyn Smith is a conservative, and she also seems like a genuinely nice person.

Re: Jackie Bisset

She was very appealing in Bullitt, and in The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, in which she plays the daugter of the character played by Victoria Principal (kind of strange, but it's only a movie).

She doesn't get enough screen time in either, particularly in Bullitt, but she's a heartbreaker even so. Also, in Bullitt, she doesn't have to cover up her beautiful English accent.

My grandad married Karen Valentine’s mom in my living room. Karen was there with her husband for the ceremony. Nice lady. I was six or so at the time.

Marriage didn’t last 18 months. I’ve seen pictures of Karen and husband sitting on a davenport in our living room.

We always watched ‘Room 222’.

There are exceptions, of course. Rare but spectacular. I'm thinking here of Meryl Streep in The Deer Hunter. Ms. Streep is not in the same league, beauty-wise, as Jill St. John, but her character (Linda) is heart-rending and unforgettable. I don't know where Ms. Streep ranks in terms of IQ points, but I think she's no dummy.

I know she's a big lefty, but so was Steve Jobs.

My top 4 (all featured here and at my site this last few weeks) were:

Bailey from WKRP

MaryAnne from Gilligan’s Island

Nardo

This week Jaclyn... I also could get into 99, older daughter in Lost in Space, Jeannie, and maybe Marsha Brady too

Streep is no exception. She’s an amazing actress, but as scatter-brained and air-headed as they come, from what I’ve seen. ...her lefty politics aside. In fact, she’s exactly who I thought of when I read your previous post — Streep’s the anti-St. John.

I had a major crush on Karen Valentine. And I also love the theme song to Room 222. It’s one of the best TV theme songs ever.

Jacklyn Smith was a real beauty but you said the magic name: Diana Rig. I was older than 15 by a good deal but she pushed all my buttons. When I was 15 it was women like Doris Day, MM, Janet Leigh and one of my all time favorites Kim Novak. Sandra Dee, may she rest in peace, and Tuesday Weld also were great.
