Glazer: Bogus Ann-Margret Death Report Sparks ‘Bombshell’ Flashback for Scribe

I was planning on writing a story yesterday on Where have all the Hollywood Bombshells gone?

I’d just caught part of the movie Bye, Bye, Birdie with Ann-Margret before going to work. It was filmed in 1963 and co-starred Dick Van Dyke. Ann was about 22 at the time, but played a 16 year old high school girl in the movie.

And she was so sexy back then.

As I watched her move around I thought to myself, she’s still hot even by today’s standards. Then it came to me.

Why aren’t there more smoking hot, iconic female movie stars like her today?

There haven’t been for some time. You know, large breasted women (with real breasts) and bubble butts – girls who can move it – sing, dance, even act.

Next I was shocked to read, SHE WAS KILLED IN NEW ZEALAND.

The reports were thin. She fell, reportedly, 60 feet to her death off a cliff called the Kauri on July 7th. My immediate thought was maybe suicide. Ann was 71, her beauty gone, her career long over. Who knows?

Her career may surprise you. Ann-Margret was born in Sweden in 1941. Her folks came here to avoid the war. Once she took off in Hollywood, she was a huge star, really for most of her life. She did movies with all the big boys, including Elvis – with whom she had an off screen romance – as well as Eddie Fisher and finally husband 77 Sunset Strip star Roger Smith.

Margret was nominated for two Oscars and several Emmy Awards. Her career got quiet after her first nomination for starring with Jack Nicholson in CARNAL KNOWLEDGE. Boy did her chest grow for that one. She later made a big comeback with films like GRUMPY OLD MEN and more recently ANY GIVEN SUNDAY in 2000 as Cameron Diaz‘ mother. And who can forget TOMMY?

The past decade has been quiet for Ann, as she fell deeper into depression and booze, reports say. She even stumbled in and out of town in a poorly reviewed version of "Last Little Whorehouse in Texas" at Starlight in 2001.

But Ann-Margret was part of the Bombshell Generation that held our attention in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Along with Marilyn Monroe, Ursula Andress and Raquel Welch, Ann led the way. All were Playboy centerfold types.

But no more.

The 80s saw the dawn of action tough gals like Sigourney Weaver (Alien) and my past girlfriend Sandahl Bergman (Conan). These ladies were attractive but not large breasted, bubble butt, hotties like Ann and Raquel.

In the 90s things went kinda wacky cute with leading ladies like Cameron Diaz and Julia Roberts. Even our big female star of the 2000s, Angelina Jolie doesn’t really have the body or the face of any of the bombshells I mentioned.

Sure Hollywood tried a little with Megan Fox and a one or two others. But it seems like today they all want more of the girl next door types. Oh, they take their clothes off but I don’t see any Ursula bodies, like we did in Dr. No with 007.

Don’t get me wrong, there are a few that have come and gone.

Jessica Alba has the lower body, but not the upper.

More importantly these past bombshells, especially Ann-Margret and Marilyn Monroe, were huge super stars for years, not just a couple pictures like Megan Fox thus far.

In fact my vote goes to Megan as the only real hottie out there today.

I’ve always thought Angelina was overrated. Fox from her Transformers movies was on a roll, but lately she’s gone a bit quiet.

So yes, Ann-Margret’s name on top of the movie billboard brought in millions of moviegoers. They don’t make them like Ann Margret any more.

    You talking ’bout how hot Megan Fox is….
    ….Is like some nasty ole grandpa talking about his granddaughter’s hot friends.

    What is considered sexy has changed. Rail skinny women that look like teenagers with fake breasts added on seem to be popular. Male movie stars shave their bodies and look like prepubescent teenagers. Back then, the women had real curves and looked like real women and the men looked and acted like real men. I agree with you. Few of these women now measure up to Ann-Margaret and the others you mentioned.

    What the fuck am I Glaze? Liver and Onions?
    77 Sunset Strip!! Snap your fingers goddamnit!!

    I had hair back then and Kookie lent me his comb.

    This just in.
    Ernest Borgnine passed away. What a great guy. Never will forget him being on Fox and Friends in 2008 to promote his book. Steve Doocy asked him the secret to his vigor, vitality and longevity. He leaned in to Doocy’s ear and whispered but the mic still picked it up, ” I masturbate a lot.”. It’s sure like most of us Ernie probably rubbed a few out to Ann Margret.

    Rest in Peace and God Bless You Ann and Ernest. I’m sure you were both welcomed into heaven with the words, job well done my good and faithful servants.

    You’re talking about women’s body parts like you’re still in middle school. RIP Ann.

You’ve seen some photos of me recently and girls I date…I still have movie star good looks, and a crazy great build, so I get 20-30 year old girlfriends son….on the other hand, I’d say my bottom ten gals of the last five years are better than your top five ever…no…post your photo…won’t…sure..you STIll are not in my league, most aren’t…there you go..but thats why you call yourself an intern…you are a nobody trying to learn..l get it…grow up.

  9. Lance the Intern says:

    Poor Glazer…..
    Movie star good looks, crazy great build….itty bitty penis. You’re a dooshbag, Glazer.

    But since I’m just an intern, I’m betting Cyndi Loo Hoo can confirm my diagnosis. (My apologies to Cyndi if I got her name wrong).
