A selection of time periods, for purely historical reasons, of course:

That Farrah poster is iconic and awesome, but that isn’t a bikini.

I know, but I think that detail can be overlooked for Farrah.

You make a good point (as did Farrah for that matter).

..though later served aboard ships which took part in the operation....
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = v= = = = = = = = = = = = =

I served on an APA from 1957-60 that took part in Operation Crossroads in 1946 and then on an LST from 1960-62 that was part of Operation Castle in 1954.

‘They’ (lawyers) talk about asbestos from ships built into the 60’s but hardly ever mention these tests as being potential problems at later dates.

OK, let’s see what I have learned:

Marilyn Monroe

Jayne Mansfield

Sharon Tate

Unknown

Rita Hayworth

Annette Funiciello

What is the name of the woman I missed? She is stunning.

I've heard the phrase, "I'd walk a mile for a Camel" of course, but this is the first time I've seen the camel walking.

Cheers!

Joi Lansing. Most who have heard of her would have seen a couple of B-movies, and she played Lester Flatt’s wife on the Beverly Hillbillies, which is where I first noticed her.

Bluegrass was definitely not her element:

In any case, you are correct on the others, so you pass! Good job!

GXt—thanks—
I learned something new.

Joi Lansing 1929-1972;died at age 43 of cancer.

I must have seen her on the Beverly Hillbillies growing up, but did not remember her.

She was very beautiful, in a classic way.

Thanks for the lesson!

On June 16, 1964, topless bathing suits went on sale in stores in New York.

Isn't that like hatless shoes or shirtless pants?

Holy Moly!

I have a mental picture of her looking in the mirror, getting ready to walk on the stage and going. “Perfect!”

I MUST agree!

It took about five minutes for me to break focus from that. Kept hoping I’d get to see where she was going.
