First SI Swimsuit Issue The January 20, 1964 edition of Sports Illustrated was the first time the magazine featured swimsuit-clad beauties. The cover model, 21-year-old Babette March, looks positively Victorian compared to cover girls of recent years. (In case you're wondering, Babette's wearing a leather bikini!)

Mabel Normand Mabel Normand was probably the most successful comedienne of the silent screen era. Nobody know exactly when she was born. Sources list 1892, 1893, and 1895 as possible years for Mabel's birth. She started to appear in movies in 1909 and was one of Mack Sennett's bathing beauties. By 1913 Mabel was writing, directing, and starring in films. Like any good movie star, Mabel was involved in a few scandals. Sadly she died of tuberculosis in 1930 and is only well known to silent films buffs today.

Mr. T and Tina - 1976 Sitcom Flop Mr. T and Tina was a forgettable ABC sitcom that aired for just five episodes on ABC in the fall of 1976. (Four other episodes were made but never aired.) It starred Pat Morita who had played restaurateur Arnold on Happy Days. Morita had also appeared on an episode of Welcome Back, Kotter as eccentric inventor Taro Takahashi. ABC bigwigs thought the character had the strength to successfully carry a series. Nope. Viewers still associated Morita with Happy Days and never took a liking to the wacky inventor. Nevertheless, the show was the first American sitcom centered on a person of Asian descent. In the series Morita played a widowed Japanese inventor who hires free-spirited Tina Kelly (Susan Blanchard) to be a governess for his children. Also in the cast was Ted Lange who, thanks to this show's quick cancellation, was able to sign onto a more successful ABC series--The Love Boat. Morita went on to co-star in the equally short-lived series Blansky's Beauties a few months later, making him one of the few actors to star in two unsuccessful, unrelated TV series during the same season.

Blanskys Beauties - 1977 Sitcom Flop After being part of two successful TV series in the early 1970s, Nancy Walker had two sitcoms in which she played the starring role cancelled in the same 1976-77 TV season. In September 1976, The Nancy Walker Show premiered. In it Walker played talent agent Nancy Kitteridge who was learning to live with her husband who had been away at sea for most of their 29-year marriage. The show bombed and was cancelled before New Year's Day. Undeterred, ABC cast Walker in another sitcom. This time she played Howard Cunningham's visiting cousin Nancy Blansky from Las Vegas on the February 4, 1977 episode of Happy Days. Blansky's Beauties premiered eight days later. In this show Nancy Blansky was a Las Vegas showbiz vet and current den mother to a bevy of beautiful showgirls. In addition to keeping order in the chaotic apartment complex where they all lived, Nancy staged the girls' big numbers at the Oasis Hotel. (Strangely, the Happy Days episode on which Nancy first appeared took place circa 1960, yet Blansky's Beauties was set in 1977.) Sixteen-year-old Scott Baio played the role of a "12-year-old going on 28." Eddie Mekka from Laverne and Shirley was also part of the cast. Blansky's Beauties ran for just 13 weeks before being axed. Recalled once critic, "This show had every 1970s teeny bopper element aimed to appeal to the lowest intellect and thus make it a hit--except this time cute boys and inane, jiggly, dumb blondes were not enough to cover for horrible scripts, contrived situations, bad acting, and unbelievable plots. The show tried to be a spin-off/tie-in to Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley (or at least ride on their successes) by utilizing actors - most notably Eddie Mekka and Scott Baio - from those shows and making the title role the cousin of Happy Days' Howard Cunningham. Having Nancy Walker as its star, scantily-clad bimbos wiggling around the set, and pretty boy co-stars to elicit screams from young girls in the audience, however, could never have saved it from itself. This show is a best-forgotten footnote to bad television."

Lee Remick One of Hollywood's forgotten beauties was Lee Remick. To moviegoers, she is most famous for her roles in Days of Wine and Roses (1962) and The Omen (1976). A talented stage actress, Remick also was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance as a blind woman terrorized by drug smugglers in Wait Until Dark. Sadly she died on July 2, 1991 of liver and kidney cancer. She was just 55 years old. One of her memorable quotes was, "I make movies for adults. When Hollywood stars making them again, so will I."
