Our Favorite TV Actresses of the 70's
Written by Rebeka Knott
The 1970’s was an extremely notable time in America. Times were changing. Some felt that it was for the better and some for the worse; but everybody agreed that things were changing. One huge change that came about was in television programming.
America was starting to let its hair down just a bit. It didn’t happen overnight but the 70’s marked a dramatic change in television programing. Along with the changing attitudes in America, came bolder and more provocative television shows.
Television producers had made the decision to get with the times. Before long, beautiful, and purposefully chosen, sexy women began appearing on prime-time television. Some were more provocative than others; but sexy nonetheless.
In early television shows, American women were portrayed as proper wives and mothers. Most women on television had traditional roles and would never think to speak a cross word or show any skin. Enter the 70’s; and all bets were off!
Below are, by no means all, but some of the sexiest American actresses that played a huge part in ushering in a new spin on television programming.
Barbara Feldon may be an unlikely nominee for a sexy television actress but don’t count her out just yet. As Secret Agent 99, she was a class act. She is probably best recognized for that role where she played opposite Don Ada,ms in the hit sitcom, Get Smart. She was beautiful and curvy in all the right places and there was no doubt that she was all woman; even holding her own against the evil forces of K.O.A.S. After the hit series finished filming in 1970, Feldon went on to appear in other television shows including The Name of the Game and McMillan & Wife.
Have you ever heard the saying that, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder?" Well, the sexy television actresses of the 70's were definitely a sight to behold!
Jaclyn Smith is best known for her portrayal of Kelly Garrett alongside Fawcett and Jackson in Charlie’s Angels. She was the only one of the original three angels to remain on the hit series for the entire run. In addition to being easy on the eyes, Smith is the total package with brains and a keen business sense. Super sexy and smart; what a great combination!
