Vintage Photos That Were Never Edited

Suzanne Pleshette, 1970s

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.

Suzanne Pleshette's most famous TV role was that of Emily Hartley, the wife of Bob Newhart's character Robert Hartley on The Bob Newhart Show, from 1972-78. As such, she was involved in one of the most famous and controversial moments in sitcom history. See, Bob Newhart went on to do another sitcom, Newhart, which ran from 1982-90. Viewers of the series finale of Newhart were shocked by the last scene, in which the famous comedian wakes up in bed with Pleshette and describes an outrageous dream -- indicating that the full 8-year run of Newhart was simply a dream Robert Hartley of The Bob Newhart Show had one night. Pleshette's brief appearance completed the most outrageous prank any TV show has ever played on its viewers. Her photo shoot with Harry Langdon in 1979 was much less meta. 

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! You're gonna lose! Lose! Lose! A miffed Maureen McCormick on The Brady Bunch, 1972.

Here's Maureen McCormick as Marcia Brady at the height of her miniskirt-enabled powers. Though she may have been every teenage boy's crush in 1972, on this particular episode of The Brady Bunch, "Greg's Triangle," she doesn't come out on top. See, her adopted brother Greg is to cast the deciding vote in the selection of head cheerleader (wait, why does Greg get to vote on-- oh, never mind), and he's torn between his sis and his girlfriend-du-episode, Jennifer. In the end, Greg does the somewhat-right thing and chooses neither of them, instead giving the top job to Pat, who is played by Rita Wilson in her first TV role. Jennifer, predictably, dumps Greg after the vote, but in a surprise twist, the normally self-centered Marcia praises her brother for his decision.
