Celebrities who posed nude for Playboy magazine - IMDb
Back in the 70s—when men were men, women were women, and breasts were real—Hollywood was obsessed with the idea of the outsider. Mobsters, bank robbers, whistleblowers—these were the heroes of 70s films. The final collapse of the studio system in the late 60s resulted in a decade of artistic though admittedly bourgeoisie auteur-driven films, before the 80s ushered in the age of the blockbuster, a precursor to today's franchise-driven cinema industry. But back to the breasts. The most common, simplest way for women to transgress on film during this decade was through their sexuality—a source of power that was wrapped up in pain, pleasure, and nonconformity all at once. This was a vision of femininity that was unhinged and demure, crass and doe-eyed, all at the same time. No one represents this ideal more than Valerie Perrine, an actress who remains one of the most underrated talents of the 70s.
