Here are some of the rarest and most fascinating pictures from our collection.
Victoria Principal, 1974
Pictured here is actress Victoria Principal best known for her long standing role as Pamela Ewing from 1978 to 1987 in the soap Opera Dallas. But around the time this photograph was taken she had recently finished The Naked Ape (1973) and in promotion of the film, she appeared nude in the September 1973 issue of Playboy.
Later in 1974, she cut off her waist length hair pictured here for an audition. She wanted to look more like the character “Rosa” in the disaster film Earthquake. So she chopped off her hair, dyed it black, and showed up to the audition with an Afro. She won the role.
She went on to a role in Aaron Spelling’s television series, Fantasy Island, and soon after that she landed her role on Dallas which earned her a Golden Globe nomination in 1983. She went on to star in and co-produce various made-for-television movies, in addition to launching her own beauty product line.
