Before Raquel Welch became a movie star she was already famous as the '60s most beautifully busty bikini pinup. The five-foot-six-inch top-heavy temptress didn't make a name for herself onscreen until the sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage (1966), in which scientists shrunk her 37-23-35 figure down to microscopic size to enter a man's body. Mr. Skin would like to enter Raquel's body, but at full size. For a sex symbol, Raquel is surprisingly sparse in skinage. Her breast performance may be in a fur bikini fighting off Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion animated dinosaurs in One Million Years B.C. (1966). The studio hyped the prehistoric picture as "Raquel Welch in Mankind's First Bikini!" She went on to the role she was born to play, Lust in Bedazzled (1967). In Myra Breckinridge (1970), the voluptuous star removed her panties for ogle-eyed old man John Huston, not that viewers got to see anything. But then, Raquel's cleavage shows more boob than even most topless cuties are blessed with.
