It's impossible to separate Catherine Bach from Daisy Duke, the denim short wearing cousin who can drive just as fast as them Duke Boys while looking ten times as better. However, as Bach would say it she was nothing like what the producers initially wanted.

While casting The Dukes of Hazzard producers were searching for a "Dolly Parton type," something that Bach doesn't really fit. She told Fox:

It’s funny because around that time, my agency had fired me and I hadn’t gone out in an interview for two years. According to them, I was too exotic looking... My husband at the time was very connected with show business and worked with Bob Clark, who was writing with the show’s creator, Gy Waldron. He must have told him my stories because Bob called me and said, 'I’m working on this project and I’ve been thinking about you. I bring you up about your stories. I would love for you to try out for this role, Daisy Duke...' After I did my reading during the audition, there was total silence. I thought, 'Oh no, they didn’t like what I did.' Then everyone, we’re talking about 30 people, got up and started clapping. They just connected with my vision of how this part should be played. Two weeks later I was on a plane to Georgia.

We think of Bonnie and Clyde as the unstoppable, rag tag couple who ran roughshod through the south, robbing banks and inspiring legends everywhere they went but this photo reveals the dark truth behind the iconic couple.

This snapshot of Bonnie and Clyde show just how young they were. Their romantic embrace in this photo makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for them.

By the time Parker and Barrow were gunned down on May 23, 1934, the fascination surrounding them had grown dark. Crowds of people surrounded their fresh corpses, grabbing at locks of their hair and clothing before they could be cleared away by the authorities. That dark end is a long way from the love seen in this photo.
