What would Hollywood be without all of its leading ladies? It’d certainly be less glamorous. Without the beauty, charm, and charisma that these talented women brought to the stage, the camera, and the microphone, we wouldn’t even have a fraction of all the entertainment classics that served as a foundation for what we have today. These starlets achieved icon status for a variety of reasons in their prime, but there’s a reason that we’re still talking about them today. Here is a rare collection of vintage photos of some of your favorite Hollywood starlets.
Some of them have been acting since childhood, just like the actress coming up who got three Oscar nominations before the age of 25!
Linda Harrison is best remembered for her role as Nova in 1968’s Planet of the Apes alongside Charlton Heston. She became such an icon for the franchise that she starred in the sequel Beneath the Planet of the Apes and even made a cameo in Tim Burton’s 2001 remake.
Harrison was also married to film producer Richard D. Zanuck, known for bringing films like Jaws and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to life.
