I remember my Dad taking me to the old Chelton Theater at 8100 S. Commercial (it's now a "Make-Believe" church) and seeing some classics - Goldfinger, Doctor No, One Million BC, Bambi, and Charlie the Lonesome Cougar. to name just a few. I'll never forget seeing Raquel Welch romping around wearing a fur bikini in One Million BC. I can remember just thinking that she was the prettiest woman I'd ever seen. She had that Sophia Loren figure and that on screen haughtiness that just tugged at Men's hearts - and nether regions.
I saw this picture reprinted on the back page of last sunday's Chicago Tribune Magazine and it brought back the memories of Miss Raquel (born: Jo Raquel Tejada)
I can almost smell the sweet scent of sunshine and hay.
