Great list Michelle! One thing: I'm old enough to actually have seen "The Poseidon Adventure" the first time it was in theaters and it was Pamela Sue Martin who was in the film, not Pamela Anderson.

Oh my goodness, Dennis, you are so right and I apologize! Funny, I watched Pamela Sue Martin regularly as Nancy Drew and on "Dynasty" and never once have I seen an episode of "Baywatch" with Pamela Anderson! Thank you for pointing that out!
