If you want to get yourself on the list for a Friday night at Studio 54, you will have a lot of names to compete with. A lot of these names may not be familiar to the naked eye; however, going back in time, these titles were practically everything.
Still, if you look closer, you see that these are names of media executives, famous composers, and even doctors who all got themselves a table and are there to spend big bucks ordering bottles from the bar. Friday night at 54 was not just a place to have fun. It was a place to do business and spend amongst the spenders.
When two actors fall in love, are they really in love or pretending to be in love? Maybe they are just acting the part that they know and think is expected of them. That does not seem to be the case for Actors John Ritter and Nancy Morgan. Both seem to be very much in love and having a great time kissing it out on the dance floor.
John Ritter and Nancy Morgan met on the set of the film "Americathon" in 1979 and married a year later. They were known to be one of Hollywood's most loving couples, sharing a strong bond that lasted for over two decades until John's sudden death in 2003.
Time For Breakfast
The one and only Truman Capote was the novelist, screenwriter, playwright, and actor who brought you classics such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and the true crime novel "In Cold Blood." Being that he was one of the greatest writers ever to walk the earth, there is no reason he shouldn't strut in the club with all that confidence. We wonder what other writers frequented the club.
Other famous writers of that time who were known to frequent Studio 54 include Andy Warhol, Gore Vidal, and Norman Mailer. It's safe to say that the club attracted a diverse crowd, ranging from artists and writers to politicians and socialites.
Living the Good Life
When you write hit songs like Y.M.C.A, Macho Man, In the Navy, and Go West, you best bet that you're never going to have a hard time getting into clubs like Studio 54, and you'll always be a hit with the ladies. Here we see band member Randy Jones posing with two very attractive ladies at the club like it's another day at the park.
In addition to their hit songs and partying at Studio 54, The Village People became cultural icons for their flamboyant and colorful outfits and their bold and daring lyrics, which challenged traditional gender roles and norms.
We've All Been There
Ever gone out to the club with your friends and found yourself knee-deep in a drunken karaoke rendition of your favorite song that no one seems to know or like? You are already off-the-stage, heaving in the bathroom, when you notice how badly you feel. We don't quite know the story behind this picture of 70s actresses and songwriters Carly Simon and Karen Black, but our guess is they were working the crowd much better than the average karaoke singer.
Carly Simon had multiple hit songs in the 1970s, including "You're So Vain," while Karen Black appeared in several musical films, such as "Nashville" and "The Great Gatsby." They were both also known for their free-spirited and unconventional personalities.
