13 60s and 70s TV actresses I wished I looked like

I was not a beautiful junior high school student. Let's just say I went through a severe awkward stage. I can vividly remember watching TV shows in the 60's and 70's and wishing I looked like some of those actresses. Here are 13 of them:

Marlo Thomas--"That Girl"

Barbara Eden--"I Dream of Jeannie"

Tina Cole--My Three Sons

Peggy Lipton--The Mod Squad

Maureen McCormick--The Brady Bunch

Barbara Feldon--Get Smart

Sally Field--Gidget and The Flying Nun

Mary Tyler Moore--The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Elizabeth Montgomery--Bewitched

Meredith McRae--Petticoat Junction

Linda Kaye Henning--Petticoat Junction

Lori Saunders--Petticoat Junction

Donna Douglas--The Beverly Hillbillies

While I loved a lot of those shows, I'm not sure I ever wanted to look like any of them. LOL But, I really wanted Samantha's and Jeannie's powers - now I could have done some serious damage with those!

Happy TT!

All beautiful women who populated my childhood, too!

MTM and Barbara Feldon.... Sigh!!

While she only had a short career, I think singer and occasional TV star Bobby Gentry (Ode to Billy Joe) was lovely.

Ann-Marie said...

My mom's old photos look JUST like Marlo Thomas!!! I never knew!

(Of course, she's still beautiful - they both are, actually)

Juliet said...

Wow!! Thanks you Ann-Marie..of course you are a little prejudice. I wished I was skinny like them.

Seriously, Cindy I have always thought of you as a beautiful women.

I liked Tina Cole and Elizabeth Montgomery, maybe because I was blonde. I didn't like Marcia Brady's teeth. Did you receive your book yet? Did you watch LOST?! I have a new theory ...

My sister has frequently been told that she looks like Sally Field.

I loved Katy on My Three Sons. I also loved the Katy, (I think) on Hee Haw. Out of all those girls on Hee Haw, she's the one I liked. :)

My TT was retro, too! Seemed to be a theme this week.

From a guys perspective my list had a few although I never went through an awkward stage. Guy Williams (Lost In Space), Chuck Connors (The Rifleman), Michael Douglas, and ultimately Peter Strauss without question. I wouldn't mind his bankroll either! Ha. However, God made us who we are and I've come to terms with that! We all grow older and without it being a cliche, God looks upon the heart.

Be well,

What a great post ... I love these nostalgia types! All of your picks are great, but I have to say, "Mary Tyler Moore" was my fav. Even when I was a teen, I had a BIG crush on her.

Hello from Speedy :~)

Oh, I wanted my hair to lie down and look stringy and FLAT like Peggy Lipton, instead of bushy and full like my normal hair. However, I also wanted black hair and green eyes. I think I would have looked more like Morticia on The Addams Family had I gotten all my wishes.
