She Became A Sensation In Popular Culture
After starring in the 1966 film One Million Years Raquel Welch became somewhat of a pop cultural sensation because of her fur bikini.
Bedazzled, Bandolero!, and 100 Rifles are only a few of her later films. Legally Blonde, starring Reese Witherspoon and her, was one of her most recent roles. The “Imagen Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award” was bestowed to her in 2001 for her efforts in promoting her Latino identity.
