Raquel Welch and Dyan Cannon, here are two Hollywood goddess’, who truly are Hollywood goddess’ and have stand the test of time. They are both now in their seventies and in Dyan’s case will turn 80 in two years. And Raquel, at best now as far as youth in years, would be an aging Baby Boomer, depending on how you define the Baby Boom Generation. But if you look at her she looks 10-20 years younger than her seventy-four years. And looks better than women today not only young enough to be her daughter, but in some cases young enough to be her granddaughter.
And Dyan, still looks great as well and here’s a movie where Raquel is not the cutest women in it. Because Dyan Cannon at least in my opinion is cuter than Raquel. When I think of sexy babies, women who are at lets say beautiful at the very least, but with a nice body and personality and are also baby-faced adorable. Both Raquel and Dyan are sexy babies, but Dyan is in that first group of baby-faced adorable goddess’. She’s up there with Angie Dickinson, Kim Novak, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Diana Dors and perhaps a few others. And she’s also a hell of an actress and very funny actress, as you see in this movie. With her famous adorable and funny laugh and smile. Raquel, is just a step behind Dyan when it comes to adorability, at least in my opinion.
Perhaps I should say something about this scene. As far as the women in it, Joan Hackett by most standards is pretty attractive women as well. But she’s in the same movie with two of top goddess’ that Hollywood has ever produced. In Raquel Welch and Dyan Cannon and simply gets overshadowed if not blacked out in it. You have Raquel and Dyan in the same scene, sunbathing on a yacht in bikini’s. Talking to each other, with Dyan joking around in it. With the Joan Hackett character looking and perhaps feeling somewhat left out in it. At least until Raquel walks away, because her character I guess is tired of the Dyan character. And the two remaining women played by Dyan Cannon and Joan Hackett telling each other why they are there.
