Erin Grey.

Very hot.

Linda Gray...from Dallas...not so hot.


Right! Erin Grey!
Yeah, Turner turned into something scary  
Bill L : 5/14/2018 1:46 pm : link
as did, btw, Kelly McGillis.

But Turner in Body Heat was ridiculously sexy.
Erin Grey..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 5/14/2018 1:46 pm : link
68 years old now!!!

And much hotter than Linda
Turner was hot for a short period of time, but fell off the cliff

quickly and horribly. Never saw the appeal to Kidder at all.

RIP to her, though - she clearly had some demons and lived a pretty rough life at times.

Never realized that Sellecca was even on GAH

Heather Thomas was on The Fall Guy.
I had a crush on Carrie Fisher, Tanya Roberts (Beastmaster - hubba)

and Batwoman, the cartoon version. Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, not so much

RIP, of course. Of note, her dating history is pretty impressive...DePalma, Spielberg, Richard Pryor, former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (father of current PM Justin)

That was around my era too. I recall the Heather debates. I though Thomas blew Locklear away but I had firends disagree.

Roberts kept standing next to Cheryl Ladd so I never really got to look at her.

Margot Kidder was bipolar. Mental illness is a serious thing, she didn't simply 'go batshit crazy'.

And Kathleen Turner aged terribly, but in her day she was smoking.



I never found her smoking. Romancing the Stone baffled me.

Britt in VA : 5/14/2018 2:01 pm : link
I loved Yvonne Craig in the '66 Batman TV series, as well as Julie Newmar as Catwoman.

Also, Yvonne De Carlo as Lilly Munster.

The joy of reruns.

She got rheumatoid arthritis in her forties and was on steroids for years which attributed to her bloating and aging. She also had to have multiple surgeries to maintain movement in her joints. Horrible disease.

I bought their DVD to see if I could figure why I was so enthralled by them as a kid. Couldn't figure it out, but if I put it on my kids will stop what they are doing and watch it.

I agree. For a time, Kathleen Turner was a total smoke show. Romancing the Stone and Body Heat, hello?! And! She's the voice of Jessica Rabbit. hubbahubba.

Bipolar is no laughing matter. At a time, Margot Kidder was quite lovely. I saw some of her early pics. Beautiful in a word. But mental illness has a way of destroying all of that. RIP, Lois.

I had to eat my breakfast in front of the TV watching them. You could not pry me away from those bitches. Must have been some of that subliminal shit going on in the 70s. You know, like naked ladies in the ice in the Coke ads. Shit like that.

Janet never was in the league of the other girls on that show.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the following, as a kid growing up in the 80's watching reruns of these shows...

1) Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie)
2) Elizabeth Montgomery (Bewitched)
3) Maureen McCormick (Brady Bunch)

Back to the topic, even as a kid, never liked Kidder as Lois Lane. It was badly cast and later on read that Anne Archer almost got that role. I think she would have been a perfect Lois Lane.

I loved Jeanie.

Thought Major Nelson was a total dick. I mean, she's a genie, she will do ANYTHING, you're her fucking MASTER, fercrisakes, and you want to date other women? In front of her? Always thought he was the biggest dumbass on TV.

I kinda liked Bob Newhart's wife, too.

Matt M. : 5/14/2018 5:14 pm : link
but was never in love with Erin Gray. I think it was the lack of boobs.

Even as a kid who was really too young to figure out why, one of my first crushes from TV was Loni Anderson.

Others:
Jeannie
Heather Thomas
Lisa Turtle
Janet Jackson (Diff'rent Strokes, not the too young version from good Times)
Elizabth Shue

That's just off the top of my head.
RIP Ms Kidder ....

Good for her for staying strong.

Turner had to take medications that made her balloon like Jerry Lewis. As noted above, Kidder was bi-polar. I hope some of the guys commenting in this thread never get sick. Heads up: itís a humbling experience .
