No invisible jet here! Sexy Lynda Carter, best known for playing TV's Wonder Woman in the 1970s, had to get around by hitchhiking before she found stardom. The former beauty queen (Miss World USA of 1972!) and nightclub singer from Arizona spent some time touring the "Silver Circuit", the nickname for a series of nightclubs and casinos in Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Reno, and Carson City. She left the tour to focus on her acting career. She appeared in guest roles in a few television shows, including Starksy and Hutch, before she landed the title role in Wonder Woman. Later, Carter acknowledged that she most likely got the role because she looked the part, not because of her stellar acting ability.

In the classic, Cecil B. DeMille religious epic film, The Ten Commandments, which was released in 1956, the film’s star, Charlton Heston, had a small part in casting one of the more memorable characters. Heston, who played the role of Moses in the movie, offered up his own infant son, Fraser Clarke Heston, to play the part of baby Moses. Born in February of 1955, young Fraser was less than a year old when he made his film debut as the religious figure who was saved from death when his mother placed the babe in a basket and sent him floating down the Nile. After this brief appearance, Fraser Clarke Heston retired from acting to focus on directing and producing, once he grew to adulthood.
