Happy 68th Birthday To Raquel Welch!!!

raquel_welch

Happy Birthday today to Raquel Welch. The still gorgeous sex goddess was born on this date in 1940 in Chicago, Illinois. I've had a crush on her since I can remember. She's one of my favorite sex symbols from the 60's and 70's. She played in some of my favorite movies of that era, including One Million Years B.C., Fathom, Bedazzled, 100 Rifles, and many more. Raquel co-starred with Dean Martin and Jimmy Stewart in 1968's Bandolero!, which still remains as one of my favorite westerns. I hope that all her birthday wishes will come true today. I've included a video clip from The Dean Martin Variety Show that features Raquel in some scenes. I hope you check it out. Enjoy!

I wish her a happy birthday too. She is still beautiful to this day. I've always been a fan of her myself. I loved that clip.

I can remember film critic extraordinaire Alan Jones once telling us that out of all the actors and film folk he's met/interviewed, Raquel was the only one who left him stick for words. A true star!

Well she makes innoculations sound dirty!
Those clips were great. I could have watched a lot more.

Hey pallie Terri. That's so cool that they mentioned her birthday on the radio. Thanks. I try to keep my postings related to the Rat Pack. Since she had worked with Dino, I thought this was fine. I'm glad you liked that clip. I was going to post something from Bandolero, but I came across this.

Paul: Your welcome. Oh yeah. She's still beautiful after all these years.

DMP: I do love that pix of them two together. I had posted it back on my blog before.

The King Of Cool said...

Steve: I would be speechless if I ever met Raquel then or now. She's definitely a goddess among women. She's incredibly sexy.

Sue: Glad you liked it. I love that video a lot. I could watch more of it myself. If I come across anymore, I'll have to post it.
