  Believe it or not, I never intended to become the queen of 1970s porn chic. I started my career as a mainstream actress and model. In fact, I landed a small role in Barbara Striesand’s movie, The Owl and the Pussycat (for sure, what an ironic title for me), and was chosen to be the model for the “IvoryRead the Rest…

  In my 15 minutes of boomer fame, I was the biggest pop culture celebrity around—literally. Get a load of these numbers. 44DD/24/35. I was the first to go topless in 1964 and started a sexual revolution that spun as fast as twirling tassels. Topless is so common today, it’s hard to believe how daringRead the Rest…

  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. For the role I beat out over 800 mostly older boomerRead the Rest…

Remember, it’s 1970 and the impact of rebellious boomer ideas is just beginning to penetrate Main Street.

  I had the most painful 15 minutes of baby boomer fame in history. The surgery lasted a lot longer, almost 10 hours. Let me admit right off, I ain’t no saint. But hey, I was the victim, dude.

Innovative. Hip. Produced by the television king of sit-com, Norman Lear, a father of boomers who understood the baby boomer psyche. All That Glitters was also a bust. You might not remember or were too young to catch the show, remarkable for its failure and obscurity. The intriguing premise should have worked at the time:Read the Rest…
