Sci-Fi’s Most Beautiful Stars: 1933-2008

John on September 4, 2009 at 10:20 am

And now for something completely different…

I’m a fan of sci-fi and fantasy films. One of the things I’ve noticed about these movies over the years is that they always feature beautiful stars. There are no doubt lots of interesting reasons for this, but I think the obvious ones are probably the right ones. In any case, we’ll save that discussion for another day.

For the moment, the only goal is to identify the most beautiful stars in sci-fi/fantasy films for every year from 1933-2008. Now, prior to 1950 there wasn’t a lot of science fiction on the screen, so you’ll see a lot more fantasy films prior to that date. Honestly, some of the films are a bit of a stretch under sci-fi or fantasy, but it was the best I could do. If you have a better suggestion, feel free to disagree or make suggestions in the comments.

Finally, a content warning: Everything here is from G, PG or PG-13 films, nearly all of which I’ve seen, some of which I’ve seen several times and many of which you’ve no doubt seen as well. Princess Leia’s metal bikini is as risque as it gets. If, however, you avoided seeing Return of the Jedi because of nudity you should probably skip this post as well.

Without further ado…

Looking over the list, about half of these movies are pretty bad. Even if you’re a fan of the genre, some of them aren’t worth watching. Maybe that’s why the casting director tries so hard to cast the most beautiful women possible in these roles?

Special thanks to Dr. Macro’s High Quality Movie Scans which is the source of many of the photos from films prior to 1950. Also, Scott looked over the whole list and made a number of good suggestions.

Update: Trying out a new gallery feature…
