42 Unbelievable Retro Photos

Celebrities are just ordinary people....except they are rich, famous, beautiful, and incredibly talented. Celebrities also take amazing photos. And we have photos of celebrities captured in their natural habitat - like you've never seen before. During the 70s and 80s, there was a show called, Battle of the Network Stars. Not only did TV stars compete in athletic contests, but it also allowed the TV network to feature actresses in tight and wet swimsuits for pure titillation purposes. And we have the photos to prove it. Not only that, but we also have candid shots of such old-timey sex symbols as Buffalo Bill Cody, an 18-year old John Candy, and Jamie Lee Curtis - years before she broke big in the movie, Halloween.

If that's not enough, we'll also show you how men were taught to kiss women in 1911 and what was on the breakfast menu the day the Titanic sunk. Let's journey forward to a world of mystery, intrigue, and celebrities like you've never seen them before. 

Young Suzanne Somers looking 70s cool

We all know Suzanne Somers as the ditzy blond on the 70's sitcom, Three's Company. But the actress also had some notable roles before she landed on the iconic TV show. She appeared as the "Blonde in the white Thunderbird" in the early George Lucas film, American Graffiti. (Which also featured a boatload of future Hollywood superstars.) In 1974, she also appeared in the uncredited role of "topless pool girl" in the Clint Eastwood vehicle, Magnum Force.

Things turned sour on the Three's Company set in 1980. Somers demanded a salary bump from $30,000 to $150,000 a episode. That didn't happen and her contract wasn't renewed. Lesson learned, don't be greedy.
