Ann-Margret went from being considered the "female Elvis" to being a mainstream Hollywood movie star. In fact, her movie career was even a little better than Elvis' - if you look at the quality of films she appeared in. She starred in Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge in 1971, and played the girlfriend of Jack Nicholson. Her performance netted Margret an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination.

One performance that's unforgettable, in 1963 she was the voice of Ann-Margrock on the animated TV show, The Flintstones - and sang the tender balled, "The Littlest Lamb." Years later, she sang a version of Viva Las Vegas for the live-action film version of The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

Elizabeth Montgomery was the star of the popular TV show, Bewitched. She played a witch who was a suburban housewife and  could get away with anything by simply wiggling her witch nose. She was also the daughter of actor Robert Montgomery and began her acting career in the 1950s with a role on her father's television series - which was conveniently named: Robert Montgomery Presents.

Bewitched hit the air in 1964 and ran until 1972. The show had two different actors playing the Darin role. Off-screen the blonde beauty made her way through four tumultuous marriages and had romantic interludes with such Hollywood heavies as Elvis Presley, Dean Martin and Gary Cooper.
