Once a sex symbol, always a sex symbol. Certainly in Jaclyn Smith's case, at least. The original Charlie's Angels star is celebrating her 70th birthday today and whatever it is she's doing... It's working. Smith, who covered many a bedroom wall alongside fellow poster girls Farrah Fawcett and Kate Jackson in the 1970s, is still pretty pinup-worthy as far as we're concerned. After Charlie's Angels wrapped its six-year run in 1981, Smith became a fixture on the small screen in TV movies—she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her title role in Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy—and she had a cameo in 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

Joan Leslie. Joan Leslie: Actress who fought Warner Bros. and costarred opposite Gary Cooper and Fred Astaire dead at 90 Joan Leslie, best (somewhat mis)remembered as sweet girl next door types in Hollywood movies of the '40s, died on Oct. 12, '15, in Los Angeles. Leslie (born on Jan. 26, 1925, in Detroit) was 90. Among her best-known movies are Howard Hawks' Sergeant York (1941), opposite Best Actor Oscar winner Gary Cooper; Michael Curtiz's Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), opposite Best Actor Oscar winner James Cagney; and Curtiz's militaristic musical This Is the Army (1943), opposite George Murphy and Ronald Reagan, and with songs by Irving Berlin. All three movies were mammoth box office hits. And all three did their best to showcase Leslie, who was not even 18 at the time, as insipid young things; in the first two – and in The Sky's the Limit (1943), opposite Fred Astaire – paired up with men more than »

Elizabeth Banks is in talks to direct a new version of Charlie's Angels, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She would also produce the movie with her partner Max Handelman. The roots of the project stretch back to 1976. Charlie's Angels, starring Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Jaclyn Smith, became a smash hit when it debuted on network television that fall, in part because it featured three strong women as private investigators, and in part because it featured three lovely women who frequently wore as little as possible on their undercover assignments. Fawcett-Majors departed after the first season and was replaced by Cheyl Ladd, and the ratings remained high. Eventually, the ratings fell, and the cast changed, and the series ended its run after five...
