Baby Boomer Animals

Posted on June 25th, 2012 in 1970s,Celebrities,Movies,Television by Terry Hamburg

Call it a baby boomer coming-of-age saga, a gross-out spectacle, pop culture teen raunch…but also call it successful. Bottom line? Budget: 3 million. Gross (pardon the word): Over 140 million. Critical acclaim? A few didn’t appreciate the approach to humor. But Animal House sits at #1 on Bravo’s 100 Funniest Movies. Roger Ebert: 4 stars.Read the Rest…

“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.”  ~Alfred Hitchcock “The length of a film should be directly related to the endurance of the human bladder.”  ~Alfred Hitchcock “Why should people go out and pay money to see bad films when they can stay home and see bad television for nothing?”  ~Samuel Goldwyn 1992Read the Rest…

Posted on June 13th, 2012 in Collectibles,Movies,Pop Culture,Television by Terry Hamburg

It’s called “growing into yourself.” You lose baby fat, features get definition, the nose elongates, even your hairline changes. But beneath all that, an imprint remains. Here are some baby boomer movie and television stars as children before Hollywood fame and fortune, probably before they ever aspired to be pop culture icons. Can you identifyRead the Rest…

Baby Boomer Space Odyssey: 2001

Posted on June 4th, 2012 in 1960s,Counterculture/New Age,Movies,Pop Culture by Terry Hamburg

It broke the molds. Until Stanley Kubrick’s mind-bending 1968 movie, baby boomers and their parents were fed a sci-fi diet of funk and fear: a 50-foot woman rampaging through town exacting revenge on all who wronged her when normal (a harbinger of women’s liberation?) or huge mutant ants crawling up sky scrappers in search ofRead the Rest…

You probably know me as the notorious “Hollywood Madame.” I regard it as a pop culture badge of honor. My exclusive client list, never revealed, looked like a Tinsel Town Baby Boomer’s Who’s Who. I served 21 months in jail. No regrets. What I did isn’t a “real” crime. Unfortunately, my father, a prominent pediatrician,Read the Rest…


Baby Boomer Celebrity Jerk. Who Is He?

Posted on May 8th, 2012 in 1990s,Celebrities,Collectibles,Movies by Terry Hamburg

The baby boomer movie star caused a momentary stir when he strolled in. Celebrities are not uncommon at high-end antiques/collectibles shows and he did live right there in Miami. Dealers try to act calm and unimpressed. Beautiful people dress down (like everyone at shows), the theory being if you appear too well-heeled, prices will beRead the Rest…

Baby Boomer Celebrity: What Happened to Sue Lyon?

Posted on April 26th, 2012 in 1950s,1960s,Celebrities,Movies,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

I was one steamy baby boomer, with the emphasis on “baby.” In my first and most famous role, I played a fourteen-year-old nymph seducing a dignified middle-aged professor who falls ga-ga in lust with me. Just so happens I was the same age when cast. I beat out over 800 mostly older baby boomer pretties,Read the Rest…
