How about Robin Williams decked out as a Denver Bronco's cheerleader - during the height of his Mork and Mindy days? Yeah we got that and a lot of other hard-to-find visual oddities.

Take a gander of rare shots of young David Bowie, Jackie Kennedy, Elvis with his parents, and not one, not two - but three Elvira pics for this Halloween month. So get ready to have your mind blown with some history factoids and your eyes dazzled with some very rare photos.

Chris Noel was a Hollywood sex symbol who became a Vietnam War icon. She was a model who turned actress - who then turned to entertaining the troops in Vietnam. Noel worked on the Armed Forces Radio And Television Service. Her program "A Date With Chris" made her fondly known by vets as "the voice of a California dream girl" by many Viet vets - while her pin up pics were very popular with the troops.

Noel entertained four tours of Vietnam and her helicopter was shot down twice.  For her work, she received the Distinguished Vietnam Veteran award in 1984 from the Veterans Network.
