Happy Belated Birthday, Carroll Baker

I'm over a month late on this, but Carroll Baker turned 78 last month, and I wanted to note this momentous occasion. Baker was a sex symbol back in the '50s, making an Oscar-nominated splash as the eponymous Baby Doll, and having a respectable career into the mid-'60s. Then she went off to Europe and did a bunch of Giallo films before returning to America in the '80s and '90s to do a whole bunch more parts.

A working actress, in other words. Our favorite kind here at the 'strom.

Astonishingly, though despite vamping her way through the height of the pointy-breast era, I couldn't find a single picture of her in a torpedo bra. In fact in a world of Monroe rip-offs, Baker was a modest, marvelous B-Cup.

Well, what do you think?
Not bad, eh? Elisha Cuthbert bears a superficial resemblance, but we'll see how Cuthbert's doing in 2060. Er, well, those of us still alive, anyway.


  1. Wasn't she in Baby Doll with Karl Malden?

  2. Er, yeah, that's what I wrote.

    But I can see why one might come here just for the pictures.

  3. Dude I am in Florida. I just lost 150 points off of my IQ. It's a requirement to enter the state.

    My appoligies.
