Kim Novak, 1962
“I had some amazing roles when I first started out. Then they kind of typecast you. They start putting you in all the same kind of things, and that didn’t go down well for me. I wasn’t in it for the money or the fame; to me it was all about the expression of something I could give that maybe no one else could in quite the same way. I felt like I had a real purpose.”
Old ARCHIE comics are always so funny to leaf through. You’re zapped right back in time. Ads for the Farrah Fawcett Fan Club. The stars are Starsky and Hutch, Lynda Carter, Rocky. Long-forgotten candy bars. The lingo and the fashion, the music. But also the innocence, or rather the sincerity—irony can be pretty tiresome in a time where even the phrase ‘jumped the shark’ has jumped the shark.
