Hollywood actor James Brolin is the spitting image of his son, Josh Brolin, in this photo of his younger years. Taken in 1970 at his Appytime ranch in California, James enjoys some sun next to his Great Dane. Like his son, James is a brilliant actor with a career that started in the 60s, starring in popular TV shows like “Hotel,” “Marcus Welby, M.D.,” and in classic films like 1973’s “Westworld.”
He is a two-time Golden Globe winner and also won an Emmy for his role as Ronald Reagan in “Marcus Welby, M.D.” He’s also appeared in “Traffic” and “Catch Me If You Can” and has been married to Barbra Streisand since 1998.
Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, David Bowie heralded a new era of rock with his unique sound. From the moment his self-titled, first studio album came out in 1967, when he was barely 20 years old, Bowie went on to lead an incredible life and career until the moment he passed in 2016.
Above we see a young ‘Ziggy Stardust’ sitting in his living room at his home in Kent, England. The year was 1971 and it had been little less than a year after releasing his classic album “The Man Who Sold the World.” If only we knew where he got that lamp…
Beautiful inside and out, folk singer and activist Joan Baez was the face of the 60s counterculture and one of the pioneers of the American ‘roots revival’ movement. In fact, she introduced Bob Dylan, whom she dated, to the world when he was still an unknown singer. Baez also dated Steve Jobs when he was a young man.
Above we see the one and only Joan in her and her mother’s house in Woodside, California. Baez is painting her nails while enjoying some time in her beautiful dining room with her cat. She’s often said in interviews that this house was her ‘haven’ since it had a garden with a tree house where she would always go to meditate and write.
Before playing villains in classics like “Pulp Fiction,” “Face/Off,” and “Swordfish,” the legendary John Travolta made a name for himself in Hollywood by playing Vinnie Barbarino in the popular 70s sitcom, “Welcome Back, Kotter.”
In the photo above we see a handsome young Travolta sitting on his vintage shag carpet wearing a T-shirt that reads ‘Vinnie Barbarino’ and typical 70s flare pants. The year was 1976, and Travolta was about to skyrocket to fame with “Saturday Night Fever,” “Grease” and “Urban Cowboy.” About to enter his 70s, Travolta is still acting to this day, and the talent remains the same.
The Italian French fashion designer Pierre Cardin revolutionized the fashion industry from the moment he opened his first design house in 1950. Cardin was a particular man, inspired by space travel and fascinated by anything to do with the topic, and so he incorporated it into his designs. Cardin created some of the most avant-garde and unique designs in fashion history, often based on geometry and shapes.
Above we see the brilliant creative mind at his home in France, in 1972. And of course, just a small glimpse into his home can tell us about the sense of style Cardin had – his silk, patterned robe, his space-inspired white chair, and the art framed in the background are absolute works of art.
