Farrah Fawcett and her iconic '70s hairstyle

Few things are as satisfying as a trip down memory lane -- and it's even better when you find something you didn't notice before. Because as Ferris Bueller said -- life moves pretty fast. Here are dozens of pictures of celebrities and remarkable people of yesteryear in all their beautiful, vintage glory. The glamour, the fashions, the hair -- whether classically elegant, effortlessly cool, or interestingly tacky, we shall not see their like again. Here's to the movie stars who were larger than life, here's to the rock stars who lived on the edge, here's to the comedians who still make us smile, here's to the bit players who had those moments of glory that changed their lives forever. It's all good, it's all groovy, and the rest is history.

You could debate who was the sexiest female sex symbol of the 1970s -- you could say that Lynda "Wonder Woman" carter had the most heroically Amazonian figure, or that Raquel Welch had an untouchable smoldering exoticism, or that Catherine "Daisy Duke" Bach had the best, uh, jean shorts. But there's no debate about the hair. Farrah Fawcett owned the hair prize in the 1970s. She had an epically tousled, feathered look. Her feathers had feathers. A California condor with a 10-foot wingspan didn't have this many feathers. There was nothing like it. The controlled chaos of Fawcett's hair was on full display in her 1976 photo shoot with Bruce McBroom, which yielded the iconic red-swimsuit image that would adorn teenage boys' rooms all over the country for years to come.

Local caddy graduates! In 1968, Bill Murray received his diploma from Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, and headed west to study pre-med at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. Pre-med? Really, Bill? That plan didn't last long, and he soon dropped out and returned to the Chicago area, where he eventually joined his brother Brian Doyle Murray in the Second City comedy troupe. Two other Murray boys, John and Joel, became actors; it's said that the acting bug tended to bite these Murrays because, as kids, they were constantly competing with each other to elicit laughter from their father, Edward Murray. The brothers also worked as golf caddies at Indian Hill Golf Club, an experience that led Brian to co-write a movie about the unsung heroes of the links -- it was Caddyshack, of course, in which Bill played deranged groundsman Carl Spackler.
