Raquel Welch is dead: Hollywood star died at 82

A fur bikini made her a sex symbol

Welch gained worldwide fame in the mid-1960s for her performances in the films ‘Fantastic Voyage’ (1966) and ‘A Million Years Before Time’ (1966). In the latter work, the actress only had a few lines of dialogue, but her iconic fur bikini made her an international sex symbol. The poster motif entered pop culture.

Other appearances in films such as “Myra Breckinridge – Mann oder Frau?” (1970) and “In a Saddle with Death” (1971) followed. In 1974, Welch was awarded a Golden Globe for her performance in Richard Lester’s (91) “The Three Musketeers” (1973).
