Rest in Peace: Raquel Welch.


My favorite story about her was from an interview she did for some magazine. They asked her about her refusal to be photographed nude. She thought for a second and blushed.

“There was one time I was doing a show in Brazil, singing and dancing. Well there was a ‘wardrobe mishap’ and the strap holding up the dress snapped and the entire front of my costume fell below the waist. Exposing my entire torso. I quickly and calmly refastened the strap and covered myself.”

With a visible jerk the various photogs at the show blinked and looked at the cameras in their hands. It turned out that not one of them had snapped a picture of Raquel’s ‘charms’.
They were all mesmerized and stunned during their brief exposure to Raquel’s beauty.

Now that’s a tribute.
