On one of Diana Ross’s opening nights at Studio 54 in the late 70s, the party was full of Hollywood A-listers and that included Suzanne Somers. It must have been a banging party if you judge by the excitement on her face. Suzanne was one of the show business’s IT girls in the 70s.
By the time this picture was taken, Somers was widely known for her role as Chrissy Snow in the iconic TV series “Three’s Company.” The series sprawled over 100 episodes from 1977 to 1981 and even gained an Emmy award as well as an Oscar. It’s clear that Studio 54 was home to so many stars that had it big in the 70s.
Meeting Your Idol on a Night Out
It doesn't matter if you are a movie star, an athlete, an artist or an entrepreneur. Pretty much everyone has an idol, and when you get to meet your idol, it'll probably be one of the best feelings in the world. At least, that was what it looked like when Gilda Radner met her idol.
Sadly, this will never happen to any of us, but Radner certainly had a streak of luck when she got to share a dance with the king of comedy, Bill Murray. For Gilda, who was an aspiring actress and comedian at the time, this was a dream come true. It's times like these that we get reminded that anything is possible if you just believe in yourself.
NYE in NYC's Studio 54
It seems like Diana Ross could not get enough of Studio 54's dance floor back in the 70s. It's clear that the singer and actress loved to get down and dirty in her ruffled dancing attire. On this particular night, she and the other club-goers were celebrating New Year's Eve.
What better place to do so than at New York's hottest club at the time? Diana and Andre Leon Talley seem to be enjoying the moment in each other's reach. Andre Leon Talley was still in his young days here, but little did he know that he would one day be the Vogue editor and be known as a trailblazer in the world of fashion.
Dolly Parton and Lou Ferringo on a Night Out
Lou Ferringo was all the talk of the town in the late 70s and early 80s, as this was around the same time that he starred as the main guy in "The Incredible Hulk" TV series. The series aired from 1977 to 1982 for a total of 82 episodes. Pictured here is Dolly Parton in Lou Ferringo's arms on a night out at Victoria Station Restaurant.
This was a chain of steakhouses that adorned a railroad theme, and during the chain's peak in the late 70s, there were over 100 locations spread across America. It seems like this chain was loved by many, including celebrities like these two A-listers. Sadly, the chain filed for bankruptcy in 1986, but the last chain located in Massachusetts closed its doors in December 2017.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver at the Barry Manilow Concert After Party
Before Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver got married in 1986, the two were often spotted on a night out, enjoying each other's company. On this particular night in 1978, the two were seen at Barry Manilow's concert after a party. The pair went on to get married and had four children in the years to follow.
The late 70s was around the time that Arnold and Lou Ferringo despised one another since they were both competing with one another for roles in productions (like "The Incredible Hulk," which went to Ferrigno), as well as in the world of bodybuilding. Despite the fierce competition between the two men, they both clearly still enjoyed a good night out!
