Glamour Girls pays homage to 75 glamorous gals of Swinging Sixties Hollywood including Carol Wayne, Edy Williams, Inga Neilsen, Thordis Brandt, Jo Collins, Phyllis Davis, Melodie Johnson, Marianna Hill, Michele Carey, Lisa Seagram, Dolly Read, Mary Hughes, Victoria Carroll, and June Wilkinson. As with Raquel Welch, the Glamour Girl of the decade, these “decorative actresses” as they were labeled, began their careers cast in minor movie and TV roles. Coming from the pages of Playboy, stages of Las Vegas, runways of beauty pageants, or the modeling world, directors were more interested in their beauty, cleavage or shapely derrieres then their acting talent. They could be found shaking their bikini-clad booties on the sands of Malibu; aiding secret agents Matt Helm or Derek Flint; baring their cleavage for director Russ Meyer in his next bosom-obsessed opus; or literally towering over Barbra Streisand as showgirls in Funny Girl. On television they played many a male fantasy figure come to life on such shows as Batman, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Wild Wild West, Bewitched, The Monkees, The Beverly Hillbillies, Hogan’s Heroes, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, and many more.
