It’s time to take a look at some photos that are going to make you wish you had a time machine handy. Did you know that James Dean stole Marlon Brando’s girlfriend shortly before his death? We’ve got the photo to prove it. Do you remember that picture of Lynda Carter in a swim cap that shocked the public? We’ve got that too. And we’ve got Jim Morrison hanging out in his home made vocal booth (also known as a “bathroom” in some parts of the country). We’ve also got classic photos from Woodstock, some sweethearts from the racing scene, and plenty of interesting facts about these small yet fascinating moments in history to keep you from falling asleep at your desk.

Crack open a can of Tab and dive into these photos that will have you reminiscing with your crew before you know it. Read on!

Isn’t Arnie supposed to be um… big? Or something? Did someone shrink him down? Or did a witch cast a spell on him? Okay so neither of those things happened, he just happens to be standing in between Wilt Chamberlain and Andre the Giant, easily two of the biggest mother effers to ever grace the silver screen. This photo was taken while filming Conan the Destroyer, the not so great 1984 follow up to Conan the Barbarian. You may remember this as the movie where a mirror wizard turns into a giant bird and captures a princess. Or maybe you’re like the rest of America and you didn’t see it.

After Dean’s death Andress went onto appear as Honey Ryder in Dr. No
