Cartoonist Curtis Tucker with an early romantic interest, some time in the '70s
Photographer Bruce McBroom tells Alex Altman the story of shooting the last of the great pinup girls...
"...It was just Farrah and myself. It was before the days where you had to have stylists and hair and makeup and background art directors and assistants. It was just me and Farrah and my Nikon, at the home she shared with Lee Majors, a house on Mulholland Drive overlooking Hollywood, with a beautiful view...."
(Thanks to Ken Tanaka and Curtis D. Tucker)
ADDENDUM: Another example of one of the fundamental mysteries of still photography...how one shot can work so well and another, similiar shot doesn't. Although obviously an homage to the Farrah poster, this promo picture of another '70s pinup girl, Loni Anderson of "WKRP in Cincinnati," falls flat. (Although perhaps that isn't quite the right phrase....) —Mike
