British actor Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca in the Star Wars films, is shown here having fun with his co-star Carrie Fisher. It was a natural fit for Mayhew to play Han Solo's giant, hairy, space alien sidekick. At 7 feet, 3 inches tall, Mayhew also towers over Fisher and her other Star Wars co-stars, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. This was because he was suffering from gigantism. He was diagnosed with this disease in his childhood itself. This led to his abnormal growth, but also caused mobility problems for him in later life. During the filming of The Force Awakens, Mayhew was confined to a wheelchair most of the time.

This is where the cool kids hang out. And when this photo was taken in 1955, no one was better than him. This was the year that blonde Jayne Mansfield first appeared in Playboy magazine as Playmate of the Month. This was also the year that teen actress Natalie Wood earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Rebel Without a Cause. Actor Lance Fuller had recently completed filming Apache Woman with Lloyd Bridges, actor John Smith appeared as one of the Earp brothers in western Wichita, and Bob Fuller, who two years earlier had starred in Gentlemen with Marilyn Monroe. Appeared in Prefer Blondes, having just returned from service in Korea.

In 1967, when this photo of sex symbol Raquel Welch was taken, the hot actress was starring in One Million Years B.C. She gained international fame for her doe-skin bikini-wearing role in. and were completing filming Bedazzled, a British comedy starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Set in London during the sixties, Bedazzled is the story of an unhappy man who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for seven wishes, which he hopes will bring him wealth and love. Welsh was cast in the role of Lilium Lust, who was... well, the personification of lust.

With a brand name that was intended to look French but still identify the product proper, it is easy to see how the next step in marketing L'Eggs pantyhose would be to sell them in plastic eggs. Starting in 1969, L'Eggs was a popular brand of pantyhose for women, especially business women who would never dream of going to the office barefoot. And those plastic eggs were quite useful. The children liked him very much. They can be used to store other items. And crafts can be made from them. Unfortunately, a lot of plastic eggs end up in landfills. In 1991, the company discontinued egg packaging in favor of more environmentally friendly cardboard.

Swedish actress Ann-Margret originally auditioned for the role of Margie in the 1962 remake of State Fair, based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. When she mastered her performance, studio executives cast her in the role of Emily, the film's bad girl – although she is insensitive by today's standards. The role of Margie went to Pamela Tiffin. Tiffin did not plan to pursue a Hollywood career. When she was 19, she was on vacation with her family in California and they visited Paramount Pictures. There, a producer saw him and took his screen test and offered him a contract.

The 1982 comedy film, Night Shift, directed by Ron Howard, is full of surprises when we re-watch it now. First of all, Night Shift was Michael Keaton's first starring role. He appears with Henry Winkler of Happy Days fame (a TV show in which he co-starred with Ron Howard). Shelley Long plays Belinda, a prostitute who, through a series of strange events, helps the men open a brothel in the town morgue where Keaton and Winkler's characters work the night shift. Look carefully, however, and you'll see a young Shannen Doherty as a Bluebell Scout, a young Kevin Costner as a frat boy, Charles Fleischer as a prisoner, and Vincent Schiavelli as a food deliveryman. will see.

In this 1961 mugshot, the first of Nick Nolte's two arrests, the future actor looks much cleaner than his 2002 mugshot (seriously, look it up on Google). It was this perfect image that saved Nolte from a long prison sentence when he was arrested in 1961 for selling counterfeit draft cards. His conviction carried a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison, but a merciful judge took pity on the young man in the button-down shirt and crew cut. The judge worked out a compromise so that Nolte could attend classes at the local community college in the morning, spend the afternoon at soccer practice, then spend his evenings in a jail cell.
