Raquel went on to star in more than 30 movies and dozens of television shows—sharing the screen with leading men like Frank Sinatra. She took a turn on Broadway and also won a Golden Globe for her role in The Three Musketeers. Offscreen, Raquel's successful wig line has made more than $500 million in sales.
Despite being a household name, Raquel has rarely spoken about her private life—until now. At age 69, Raquel is opening up for the first time in her deeply personal memoir, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage. "I thought when I came along in that [One Million B.C.] poster I was a thing to be seen and not heard," she says. "By the time you get to 70, you might have a couple of things you'd like to say, and you might like to reach out and have a conversation with other women."
