#63 Francine York

Francine York was a typical ‘70s babe with big hair and even bigger … well … um … you know. Francine got the acting bug at age nine, when she stole the show – as one of the evil stepsisters – from Cinderella. She then put in her time twirling batons, doing pageants, modeling, and being a show girl. 150 credits and a 50-year-career later (including a stint as an Elvis girl as well as lots of classic TV), she’s still going strong – and looking great – today.
