ANGIE DICKINSON




























Angie Baby!  I'm a "Leg Man," so it should come as no surprise that I got a little weak at the knees whenever I saw this leggy lovely on the big screen or TV.  You could make a strong argument that Angie Dickinson had the sexiest legs in the business, and one look at these photos stacks the evidence pretty high in her favor.  Beautiful, sexy, strong and tough, Angie was a "Bonnie and Clyde" type girl, a female that a man could count on to raise the kids, or if the situation necessitates, raise a rifle on an enemy.

A native of North Dakota, Angie moved to California as a teen, and her knock out looks quickly elevated her into local beauty contests.  In 1953, she finished as the first runner-up in the Miss America contest and bit parts in films, mostly Westerns, soon followed.
 
Angie's big break came in 1959, when she won the part of Feathers in the Howard Hawk's big budget Western Rio Bravo.  Surrounded by some of Hollywood's biggest and toughest stars (John Wayne, Dean Martin, Walter Brennan, not to mention a young Ricky Nelson.), Angie proved she could not only hold her own, but give just as tough as her rugged cast.

Angie's performance in Rio Bravo got her out of Western purgatory, and she churned out fine performances in 1960's Ocean's Elevan, as well as A Fever in the Blood, and The Sins of Rachel Cade the following year.  However, a string of B-Movie flops followed, and Angie's star wouldn't re-ignite until she took the role of Sgt. Pepper Anderson in the NBC crime drama Police Woman in 1974.  The show was an instant hit, and it showcased Angie at her best; sexy, tough and very believable as a female cop in a male-dominated profession.  Police Woman enjoyed a four year run, and re-established Angie as a true Hollywood star.

The same year that Police Woman shot Angie to the top of the television charts, Roger Corman's New World Pictures released Big, Bad Mama, a film which featured a very "nude" Angie in a love scene with none other then Star Trek's William Shatner.  The film was a box office success, and proved that even in her forties, Angie was as hot as any actress half her age.

After Police Woman's run, Angie returned to the big screen in 1980 and hit big with Brian De Palma's pyschological thriller Dressed to Kill, which featured Angie in a celebrated nude shower scene (which was done with a body double). 
 
A string of Made-For-TV movies kept Angie working through the 80's, and it appeared her long, successful Hollywood run had petered out by the end of the decade.  However, Angie, is nothing if not resilient.  In 1995, she returned to the big screen in the Harrison Ford remake of Sabrina and got critical praise as a homeless alcoholic woman in Pay It Forward in 2000.

Whether playing a sex symbol role, a tough frontier girl, a gangster mom or a sultry undercover policewoman, Angie Dickinson has always appeared to be comfortable in her own skin.  Her sexiness is not solely the result of her gorgeous physical assets, but from her onscreen cool and confidence, which makes her the woman every man desires, and what every woman aspires to be.
