Raquel Welch - ever nude?

This may be a GQ, but I thought this would be the best place to post this question.

Has Rachel Welsh ever been photographed nude? I heard she was in Playboy many years ago, but I've not been able to confirm this.

Does anyone know for sure, and if so, could you provide a link? All proper SD etiquette applies to the link, but I'm guessing if she was in Playboy in the 60's or 70's, it's probably pretty tame.

She was in Playboy, but it was a typical famous celebrity layout - she was nude, but all the naughty bits were covered up. No nipples or aureole, no bush.

I'm going to guess that you mean Raquel Welch.
The answer depends on your strict definition of "nude".
There's a pretty good answer here...

thanks for correcting the typo in her name. I knew my spelling looked wrong.

This is what I would expect. Have you seen it, and do you have any idea what year it was in?

December, 1979. Here is a link to the cover shot, which is newsstand-safe. And there is a link on the page to the images. There is one image that was manipulated to make her appear as if she posed nude - they painted out the bikini bottom and painted in pubic hair.

gaffa, thanks for the link. I guess that's as close as she's come.

and little*bit, I forgot to thank you for the link to the wiki-page. That was a very interesting and informative article.

100 Rifles is a good Welch film. very sexy role. There's a well known screen cap from the film that confirms she's definitely a woman. I had the screen cap years ago. It should still be around on the web. thank goodness for tight pants

Ever see the SNL skit starring Welch, "Planet of the Enormous Hooters?"

Actually, you probably haven't -- it was never censored, but was put into the first SNL book.

Enter Jane, Laraine, and Gilda, wearing "Barbarella-type costumes. They have the biggest breasts that costumes can come up with."

Jane: Bring the deformed one to me!
Dan (Voice over): The planet Estrogen, populated with monsters and an advanced race of women. Their leader, Zarna, a dominating mistress of exacting standards.

(Enter Gilda and Larraine, escorting their prisoner, Raquel, who is wearing a costume without the gargantuan prop breasts).

Laraine: Look! Her breasts are so small they look like melons!
Raquel: Oh, please stop belittling me!
Jane: It is clear you do not fit in with our society. I hereby banish you to the planet Earth, where your undersized breasts will go unnoticed and you may live your life in anonymity.

Co-written by a future senator.

Very funny idea -- Raquel being exiled to earth because she couldn't measure up to the other woman on her world.

They wrote the routine for Raquel Welch, but she didn't do it. They used iot later when Parton was a host.

I'd read about the script before Parton hosted SNL, so it's believable. Why welch didn't do it, I don't know.

Thanks, Marley!

I'd hate to think I missed out on a Raquel nude-o-rama because of a spelling error.

fun fact: I did a google search on the wrong spelling and it appears that a porn actress used the SFP-spelled name. Definitely NSFW!

NBC (or whoever owns the rightsnow) apparently doesn't allow any Youtube clips to be uploaded of the show-damned shame in this case even if it was Dolly and not Raquel. The ultimate irony was that Gilda Radner was as flat as a board.

I met her once and she was very intelligent, nice and not at all stuck up. I was just a security guard, but when I mentioned I was a Marine Biology major we chatted about whales and such for a good half hour, and she held up her end vs a upper-division major. Of course, it helped that she was waiting to go on for a TV benefit and bored to tears.

I think it also helped that I talked to her like two people interested in Marine Biology and not like a autograph hunter talking to a star.

Who knew answering "Yes!" to the question "Is anyone here a marine biologist?" would get me time with Raquel Welch?!

DrDeth, you are one lucky guy.

Actually it went like this:
RW "Aren't you a lot younger than our usual guards?" (My company usually hired retired military, etc)

Me "Yes, I'm working my way through college."

RW "Oh, what's your major?"

and so forth.

It is a treasured memory, certainly.

Raquel (or rather the 1,000,000 Years BC poster) was on my ceiling my freshman year of college. This was in 1969, before fakes, so I'm pretty sure they are real.

I knew a woman who worked on a Raquel Welch movie once (The Prince and the Pauper - a major flop). My friend was in charge of the catering, or something like that. Anyway, she claimed that she did get to see Raquel nude, or at least topless, during the shooting, and that in her judgment they were undoubtedly fake. IIRC she saw Raquel lying topless on her back, and the boobs were sticking straight up.

It may have just been feminist inflected cattiness, though.

This memory is much more than 20 years old, but I could've sworn she had a brief nude scene in The Magic Christian.

If those are fake breasts, then they're the best damn fake breasts in the history of plastic surgery. Most implants look like they sliced a cantaloupe in half and glued them to the woman's chest, but hers are most definitely breast-shaped.

Mod note

People -- pls. remember our NSFW two-click rule.

If you post a link to a site that most people would prefer that their bosses not see over their shoulders, please make a two-click link. Putting it in a spoiler box suffices for that second click.

Thanks,

twickster, Cafe Society moderator

OO -- that was you again? Knock it the fuck off.

Isn't there a "not" missing from your quote after "would"?

Also, in the coding, your comment to "OO" shows up as [ B]OO[/B ] (without the spaces), which I thought was appropriate in this thread.

Oops, yes, definitely -- why I shouldn't post (at least not as a mod) before I'm all the way awake in the morning. I have edited that post, with note as to the edit. Thanks.

They are real, and they are spectacular!

She's still hot at 70. I'd have no trouble with the concept of having sex with that senior citizen if she was nice enough to grant me the privilege.

She really hid her body well... even in those movie stills, you can't see any nipple, bush or anything that is standard for nudity.

Jesus H. Christ, that's a thing of beauty. Can it really be the only available image?

Just FYI to others, as more images are added to the blog, the position of the Welch image shifts downward.
