In my new book Glamour Girls of Sixties Hollywood, most of the actresses profiled aspired to be like Raquel Welch. And of the ones I interviewed, respected and admired Raquel’s professionalism and deteremination to be a star even if they did not like her personally. But there are some 60s starlets (such as Diane Baker) who have sour grapes and put down Raquel even do this day despite the fact that she reached super stardom and has proven herself in film, TV, and on stage.
Though I love Raquel I have to admit she starred in some really crappy movies none more so than Myra Breckinridge (1970) where we are supposed to believe mousy Rex Reed has a sex change and morphs into Raquel! Click here to read Raquel’s recent comments about this camp stinker.
