Charlies Angels

There is a whole lotta grooviness collected here. Proceed with caution, as you may feel overcome by nostalgia and long for the good old days. Or you could suddenly experience the urge to start singing ‘Let's Get Physical’ and start to ‘shake your groove thing’. So sit back and enjoy the show, because the best way to turn back time is to flip through photographs.

Good morning angels! Pictured here are television’s darlings, Charlie's Angels back in the '70s. Charlie's Angels ran from 1976 to 1981, for a total of 110 episodes in its five seasons. It follows three crime-fighting women who work for a private detective agency owned by a mysterious billionaire named Charlie Townsend (who directs his angels via speakerphone). 

The original cast (pictured here) was Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, and Jaclyn Smith in the leading roles, with David Doyle co-starring as a sidekick. After Fawcett left the show, Cheryl Ladd stepped in. Later additions were Shelley Hack and Tanya Roberts.

Check out this photo of a very young Florence Henderson (pre-Carol Brady) back when she was just starting out as an actress/singer in the 1950s!  Despite her long and successful career, she will always be best known as the lovely lady Carole Brady. 

Her career stayed strong after The Brady Bunch went off the air. She’s done extensive work on Broadway in addition to numerous film and television appearances. She did “Dancing with the Stars” in 2010 and she even had her own show for a while, The Florence Henderson Show. She worked on Who's Cooking With Florence Henderson and did regular guest popups in the show “Samantha Who?” which earned her an Emmy nomination. She married twice, is the mother of four children, and died of heart failure in November of 2016.
