Six Must-See Films With Raquel Welch, From ‘Fantastic Voyage’ to ‘Myra Breckinridge’
Raquel Welch, a veteran actress who rose to fame as a sex symbol in the 1960s and 70s, died Wednesday in Los Angeles at the age of 82 after a brief illness. The news was confirmed to NPR by her son, Damon.
In a career spanning
nearly six decades, Welch started in the 1960s with appearances on TV shows such as The Virginian, McHale’s Navy and Bewitched. These appearances paved the way for back-to-back roles in Fantastic Voyage and One Million Years B.C. in 1966.
Throughout her career, Welch was a two-time Golden Globe nominee, winning Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, for her role in the 1973’s The Three Musketeers as Constance de Bonacieux, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Here’s a look at some of her most notable roles:
1. One Million Years B.C. (1966).
The 1966 film, set during a fictional prehistoric age where cavemen and dinosaurs co-exist in the world, tells the story of prehistoric man Tumak as he is banished from his savage tribe. Welch only had a few lines, but her animal skin two-piece became part of pop culture history.
2. The Three Musketeers (1973).
An adaptation of the 1844 Alexandre Dumas novel, the 1973 film tells the story of swordsman D’Artagnan (played by Michael York), after he travels to Paris with the hope of joining the royal guard.
Welch plays the role of Constance Bonacieux, who is a dressmaker to the Queen, Anne of Austria.
3. Fantastic Voyage (1966).
This 1960s film follows scientist Jan Benes (Jean Del Val) as he develops a way to shrink humans and other objects for brief periods. Benes is transported by the CIA to America but is unfortunately attacked en route.
To save Benes, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his bloodstream with a small crew; as they have a limited time to get out before the miniaturization wears off.
4. 100 Rifles (1969).
Welch made film history in this 1969 Western, starring alongside African American actor and former professional football player Jim Brown. The movie, set in 1912 in Sonora, Mexico, follows native revolutionary Yaqui Joe (played by Burt Reynolds) as he robs a bank to buy guns for the Yaqui people.
However, he finds himself sought by the Mexican Army.
Welch — who played the role of Sarita — along with Brown sparked controversy for their sizzling interracial love scenes in the movie.
5. Myra Breckinridge (1970).
Based on Gore Vidal’s 1968 satirical novel of the same name, Welch in this film played an aspiring actress who underwent a gender reassignment surgery in Europe, eventually traveling to Hollywood in search of fame and her late wealthy uncle’s estate.
6. How to Be a Latin Lover (2017).
In her final film, the 2017 comedy features Welch as widowed billionaire Celeste Birch, who tries to fend off romantic advances from a rusty gigolo, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez), who’s made a career of seducing rich older women.
After being dumped by his wealthy 80-year-old wife, Maximo plans to seduce Celeste as he hopes to live the high life once again.

He soon formed a team of 120 people but decided to distance himself from the Ponzi scheme and focus solely on trading. Although it was not easy, he persevered and reinvested everything he earned in education.
As for his personal life, Jonathan had to deal with a separation and raising his daughter amid economic uncertainty and his illness. But a friend asked him to teach him how to trade, and that’s how he began to forge his path to success.
Today, Jonathan is a reference in the world of trading and has thousands of followers on Instagram.

Full-Floor Penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, Sells for $21 Million
The four-bedroom apartment has 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces and panoramic views.
A full-floor penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, has sold for $21 million, the developers announced Thursday.
Spanning the entire 51st floor at the 52-story condominium tower, the penthouse has 7,760 square feet of interior space, including four bedrooms and staff quarters, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a great room, a living room, a family room, an expansive kitchen with views, a gym, a home theater and a den, according to developers Fortune International Group and Château Group.
“It features 13-foot ceilings and 360-degree views of the entire coastline and downtown Miami,” said Edgardo Defortuna, chief executive officer and president of Fortune International Group.
The apartment also has nearly 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces with a summer kitchen, a private pool and a private garden.
The penthouse went into contract in November 2015, pre-construction, but didn’t close until the tower was granted a certificate of occupancy this past February, according to Mr. Defortuna.
Construction of the tower, with 250 feet of beach frontage, began in mid-2016.
The buyer is from the U.S., but the developers declined to disclose their identity. The transaction has yet to appear in public records.
About 80% of the tower’s 209 residences have sold, including all four penthouses. In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the developers have completed 112 closings, with a great number of them conducted virtually, Mr. Defortuna said.
Late last month, the developers announced that they have paid off a $212 million construction loan from Bank OZK, which they undertook in September 2016.The tower, which has no Ritz-Carlton-branded hotel on the premises, has Ritz-Carlton services and a private club level on the 33rd floor, including eight private suites for resident guests, a restaurant and bar, two pool decks, a kids club, a full-service spa, a fitness center and a wellness center, among other top-line amenities.
