before, but have stumbled upon more examples in the meantime. I hope you enjoy them!
Maureen O'Hara, who played Natalie's mother on two cinematic occasions, gets into the act here as well. Let's just say that Jake wasn't the only big thing in 1971's Big Jake. Miss O'Hara's hair also scaled some serious heights.
Miss Beverly Garland was a guest star on a 1965 installment of Laredo when she displayed this follicular attachment. (In need of a little grooming, himself, is Neville Brand, shown to the left!)
Game shows also could offer up some fun hair. Take Belgian actress Monique van Vooren during a 1964 appearance on Password.
Now this 'do shown below isn't piled high like most of the others, but it's pretty sizeable and very distinctive. Rona Barrett was a very popular gossip columnist of the 1960s and '70s. Here she is on Match Game '75 with her signature coif.
The Hollywood Palace.) I could do an entire entry, I'm sure, simply based upon hair from the long-running The Lawrence Welk Show (1955 - 1982.) Welk is shown here surrounded by some of his 1960s ladies.
Stiff and restrained as they sometimes could be, they nevertheless had talent. Of course, in The Underworld, we're more concerned with Cissy's up 'do!
For me, the ne plus ultra of hair on The Lawrence Welk Show, though, came courtesy of The Lennon Sisters. The singing sibling quartet hit their peak of fame just as hair was reaching its peak of height!
One can go all the way back to 1955's Kismet with Marlene Dietrich (or perhaps even further!) to find the roots of these wild '60s hairstyles.
Where It's At.
Brian Kelly (from Flipper) for four years, but then married composer Maurice Jarre and retired from acting right away.
I've posted pics of Tippi Hedren (with Sean Connery) in Marnie (1964) before, but this one really shows off her hairstyle.
The Oscar (1966) at that movie's premiere, her statuesque frame lent itself well to the look.
Valley of the Dolls (1967)!
Speaking of Valley of the Dolls and 1967, Miss Sharon Tate went red (and big) for that same year's The Fearless Vampire Killers.
The blonde shown here with Milton Berle is just an extra from The Happening (1967), but I had to include her, too, thanks to that interesting hairstyle.
In the strange 1978 mood piece Remember My Name, Geraldine Chaplin plays a chain-smoking ex-con who, upon release from prison, goes to have her hair done, but in the only style she knew from before she was sent away.
Occasionally, an actress at an award ceremony will give us some vertical or otherwise directional hair (J-Lo is good for this on occasion), such as Kate Beckinsale, shown here.
