Big Cat Shenanigans

Lana WoodHow amazing are these photograph of these two wild cats together?!  Actress Lana Wood is caught whispering sweet poetry into a leopards ear for the 1969 issue of Italian magazine, Playmen.

Lana Wood appeared in several films and television shows during the sixties and seventies.  She is best-known for her three minute long role playing the character Plenty O’Toole in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds are Forever.  In the movie, Lana was plunged into a pool at the hands of a villain.  I suppose its much safer to stay out of the water and play with the neighborhood kittens.

Lana also gained fame by posing for Playboy naked.  Lana did make one strict condition of running her nudie photographs — Playboy must also publish some of her poetry.  We wonder what words of poetry she breathed into this big cat’s ear…

Well slap Rebena with a velvet glove!   Here are 3 slices of pink-hot Toronto fashion from the ’80s, captured on videotape and forever destined to haunt the acrid memories of those who lived through them.

The Eaton Centre aka the Centre of the City is a place where Toronto’s fashion congregated and retail outlets from Simpsons to Stitches sold on the best and worst of the times.

Yeoman panty providers Whisper managed to capture the essence of 1986 in a mere 30 second television commercial. (Yes, Rebena’s stairs do that!)

GWG sought fame on the back of rising hockey god Wayne Gretzky, who actually found much more infamy and street cred in the decade with his playground friendly Joey Moss PSAs.
