With fame came the chance for Raquel to spend time with leading men like Burt Bacharach, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley. She doesn't believe a woman should kiss and tell, but Raquel does spill some dirt in her new book. "They were all interesting in their own ways," she says.

In 1964, Raquel had a small part in Elvis' film Roustabout. "He was like high-octane energy set on idle," she says. "He had all this stuff in him. He was charged up. But it was all contained in this cool demeanor."

Still, she says he never actually seduced her. "He invited me someplace that I decided not to go," she says. "I just didn't want to be another notch in his gun."

In 1972, Raquel filmed Bluebeard in Budapest with Richard Burton. "He's like a heat-seeking missile, a smoking hot romantic," she says. "He was just so charismatic. He was just really something."
