Some moments should be remembered forever. Don’t you think? Especially in popular culture seeing images of people, places, events, and things from the past can bring back nostalgia and memories that are priceless. Some of the most epic moments were during the groovy era of the ’70s. During this era, some of the biggest pop culture icons ever rose to fame, social values radically changed, and rock ‘n’ roll redefined music. Here are some of the most memorable, classic moments that should never be forgotten.
Claudia Cardinale, 1967.
Claudia Cardinale, the beautiful Italian actress, certainly turned heads! We’d even say she took the world by storm after her role in The Pink Panther. She starred opposite David Niven, and she was propelled to global fame. Other movies she starred in include Girl with a Suitcase (1961), The Leopard (1963), and Federico Fellini’s 8½ (1963).
3 children viewing the solar eclipse, February 26th, 1979. Anyone else do this?
At first glance, you might not be sure what this picture is of. But this is how little GenX ers watched the solar eclipse of February 26, 1979! Their helmets were self-made from boxes and brown paper bags. They went outside to see the eclipse of 1979. This photo became famous when Canadian artist Janet Bright posted it on her blog. She described the eclipse by stating, “I’m fairly certain it wasn’t really as dark (pitch black) as my faulty memory tells, but there it is – the film running in my head, of a warm(ish) cold, mid-winter day when the moon got in the way.”
