Life was different in the Groovy Era. In the middle of the 20th century there was a change in the way that people were thinking. Some people went back to nature, some hit the open road, and others expressed themselves through breathtaking artistic ventures. Through these nostalgic photos we can relive the greatest moments of the ‘50s ’60s and ‘70s with stars like Marilyn Monroe, Ozzy Osbourne, and Paul Newman, just to name a few.

You’ll see celebrities like Sofia Loren trying out new hairstyles next to witchy television stars, and bearded drummers working on solo albums. We hope you’re ready to spend the day in our little time machine, remembering what it was like when everything was a little more Groovy. Let’s go!

Sally Field is one of those actresses who’s taken the audience though the best decades. While the nature of her work has changed, and she’s flitted between television and film, she’s always got a confidence and grace that lets her fans know that she’s in charge. Whether she’s a flying nun, or a Southern California goofball, her work is always effortless and fun.

In the ‘60s Field starred in shows like Gidget and The Flying Nun, however she felt that she was being typecast with these kinds of roles. Rather than moan about it, she studied at the Actor’s Studio and chased interesting roles throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s. Because of this, we really, really like her.

When you look back at the cast of the original Star Trek it’s clear that in spite of Kirk’s bravado or the irascibility of Bones, that Spock was the coolest member of the crew. The same goes for Leonard Nimoy, a guy who managed to turn a couple of pointy ears and strange eyebrows into more than an odd fashion choice.

Nimoy was the backbone of Star Trek throughout the show’s criminally underwatched three seasons, and according to his autobiography he was always working on something new even when he was stuck on set. Even though Leonard Nimoy beamed away from Earth for the last time, his memory will always live long and prosper.
