Forgotten beauties: Jamie Lee Curtis in Trading Places

She made for one heck of a proz!


For a certain young gentlemen, 1983 proved to be a massive turning point. Sitting cross-legged on the floor, it was the first time that he had seen a spectacular set of naked bosoms in a comedy – this was, naturally, the moment in Trading Places where Jamie Lee Curtis gets them out. It made for a confusing, emotional moment – bewildered tears giving way to absolute joy. Those things were magnificent! Up until then, Curtis’ on-screen prostitute, Ophelia, had been nothing more than a gobby thorn in Dan Ackroyd’s side, but then there she was, knockers out, a woman. A fully formed, intriguing woman. A woman with big fleshy breasts. No one would ever argue that Lee Curtis was blessed with the most alluring face on the streets, but in an age where aerobic workouts and up-the-bum leotards were a la mode, she had the kind of streamline figure that men with crimped blonde hair could write tearful soft rocking ballads about. What a marvelous gal. She has since gone on to grow older.

    Weird science. Kelly Le Brock. Now that was a sexual awakening…
