Michelle Pfeiffer finished 6th in the 1978 Miss California Pageant.

Magic nannies, caped crusaders, friendly aliens...the groovy era was filled with outlandishly awesome plots. This was a time when walking into a studio executive meeting and pitching a show about a man driving cross-country with his monkey was given the green light immediately. The images collected here are full of optimistic, fantastical, and magic times from pop culture history. These happy days are yours and mine to look back at fondly anytime.

Pictured here is Michelle Pfeiffer back when she finished 6th in the 1978 Miss California Pageant. Two years after this photo was taken, her acting career would start chugging along. Her early acting years only consisted of bit parts, in films that didn’t achieve all that much in the way of critical or box office success. But by 1983, (which isn’t that long to wait in Hollywood years), she was cast in Scarface (1983) as cocaine-addicted trophy wife Elvira Hancock. A role which she almost lost out on because of her involvement in the flop of a film Grease 2. Now the timeless beauty is a star. 

Blue-eyed beauty Crystal Gayle is best known for her 1977 country-pop hit, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.

Born Brenda Gail Webb, Crystal Gayle grew up to to be a singer with twenty #1 country hits (18 on Billboard and 2 on Cashbox) and six of her albums certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, she was a force to be reckoned with during the 1970s and 1980s. Gayle was also the first female country music artist to reach platinum sales.

It appears immense talent runs in her family, as she is the younger sister of the legendary country singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn and the singer Peggy Sue. They are also distant cousins of singer Patty Loveless.
