Sally Fields has low key been America’s sweetheart for decades, but she says that in the 1970s she wasn’t exactly feeling the love from people even though she garnered critical acclaim for her role in Sybil. While speaking with Oprah, Fields said that she took the role in Smokey and the Bandit because she thought it would help people realize her full "potential":

Burt Reynolds called me up personally. I pretended it wasn't shocking and scary that he would call me. He said he had this movie and the script wasn't very good but that he trusted me and would make it work. Actually, there was no script; in the end, we made up half the movie. The challenge for me was that people saw Sybil and said, ‘Boy, she can act—but man, is she ugly!’ So I thought if I did a movie with Burt and he thought I was cute, then somebody else might think I was cute and I could continue acting.

Robin Williams bounced into the homes of millions of viewers in the 1970s with Mork and Mindy, and in its second season the show made a huge ratings play with “Mork vs. the Necrotons,” an hour long special that featured Raquel Welch as Captain Nirvana. The off the wall episode centers around Nirvana and her alien fiends trying to kidnap Mork so they could torture him - it’s wild. The marketing behind this episode was heavily focused on the babalicious Welch’s appearance with a tagline that read: 

“Raquel Welch stars as the sultry space spy who wants More… real bad.”
