Unedited Vintage Photos That Crossed The Line

Debbie Harry looking cool... no surprise there 

In this exact moment in time, the world is blinded by fear, uncertainty, and loss. With an uncertain economy, fear of sickness and death looming, and worldwide restrictions, we are all faced with meeting our own personal challenges and fears. Bad things may be happening around us, so let's go to the past and to the happy times...let's relive some of those golden years and escape reality even if it's just for the length of this gallery.

We tend to look back on the past with rose tinted glasses. The reason the future and the present moment can feel uncomfortable at times like these is due to uncertainty...we just don't know if that outcome is going to provide us what we need to feel safe, secure, and happy.

The beautiful thing about revisiting history is it gives us the power of hindsight...we know what happens then, so it's safe and comfortable. And the memories that those moments in history provide us actually can help us shift how we feel in the present moment, which is the only thing that can shift how our future unfolds.

So let's take a look back on the groovy past, forget the uncertainty of today, and find serenity in the fact that no matter what has happened in the past, that we have always survived, grown stronger, and wiser because of it.

Has anyone ever been as cool as Debbie Harry? Of course she’s a babe, but she exudes the kind of cool confidence that makes you want to grab a beer with her as much as it makes you want to take her on a date. Oh, and she’s in one of the coolest bands that ever played.

Even though Blondie was one of the few bands that managed to crossover from the New York punk scene to the pop crowd, reviews weren’t always kind to the group. Harry says she didn’t read them:

I always found it sort of disturbing to read stuff while I was doing shows—all of a sudden the things I’d read would flash in front of my face in the middle of a song and I’d forget where I was, and go [gasps]. Like shock therapy.

What better place to shoot a spy movie than the Bahamas? That’s where Thunderball’s greatest scenes take place and in the 1960s it’s a beautiful place to see.

Even more beautiful than the Bahaman scenery is Claudine Auger, a French-born actress who was once crowned Miss France and who finished first runner-up in the 1958 Miss World pageant.

While other actresses were up for the role of Domino in Thunderball, Auger earned the role when she ran into producer Kevin McClory, and he signed her on the spot. Reportedly he didn't care if she could speak, she just needed to look good in a bathing suit... no problem there.
