This collection of memories and behind the scene glimpses into Hollywood’s history have us completely smitten with the past. It feels like just yesterday when "Who's the Boss?" was still on the air and it’s so strange to think that groundbreaking musician David Bowie and mogul Hugh Hefner are no longer alive. Come daydream away with this batch of goodies from pop culture history.

This gem features Deidre Hall and Judy Strangis as Electra Woman and Dyna Girl back in 1976. The live-action science fiction children's television series only aired 16 episodes in one season. It was more like a special extension of The Krofft Supershow.

The crime-fighting exploits of Electra Woman (played by Deidre Hall) and her teen sidekick Dyna Girl (Judy Strangis), parody Batman in several ways. They were spandex-wearing caped crusaders with day jobs, ready to go through the "Electra-Change" and hop in the "ElectraCar" at a moment's notice. They also had a wide array of technically advanced gadgets and an eclectic collection of supervillains. They even uttered catchphrases like "Electra Wow!" or "Electra Yikes!"

Marilyn Monroe remains one of the biggest pop-icons in history and is widely considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. The actress, model, sex-icon, and mistress to the president of the United States John F. Kennedy was often cast as a “dumb blonde”. She was treated like a bimbo, a cliche... but she ended up becoming the embodiment of the 1950s entire attitude towards sexuality.

She was beautiful, stylish, and died far too young and under suspicious circumstances. Even her death has achieved legendary status as conspiracy theories still surround it decades later.
