Fall Fashions 2

Shelley in a 1975 spread from Good Housekeeping
 
Shelley appeared in the September 1975 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. In a spread called "The Best of Fall Fashions," she modeled fashions to sew, crochet and kint by Simplicity Patterns. The pictures were taken in The Old Village at the Historic Towne of Smithville in New Jersey, a restoration town "where life is lived as it was circa 1800." And Shelley looked positively lovely in the latest fall fashions for 1975.
 
Shelley modeled "a long lean cardigan in textury reverse stockinette stitch with ribbed trim" and a "tunic and eased skirt" simplicity pattern # 7005.

Yuppie Couple

Shelley starred with Tom Mason in the 1986 TV series Jack and Mike. They played a yuppie couple trying to balance their careers and their marriage. The show debuted on ABC in 1986 and immediately followed the series Moonlighting. The show received decent ratings and had a short run.

1985 Film

Shelley starred in the 1985 TV movie Kicks with soap superstar Anthony Geary. The film was about a couple of trill-seekers who love engaging in dangerous and life-threatening activities.

Iconic Suspenders

Shelley became a Charlie's Angel in 1979. Her character Tiffany Welles was described as a sort of Grace Kelly-Lauren Bacall type of Angel, a very classy Angel. She sported a pair of iconic suspenders in a few Charlie's Angels episodes as well as in some promo pics for the show. The image of Shelley in those suspenders is so familiar to many a Charlie's Angels fan that it has reached icon status in itself.

Exciting News

When Shelley was chosen as the new Charlie's Angel in 1979, everyone was happy and excited to see The Charlie Girl debut as one of Charlie's Cherubs. And what a great choice she was. She was gorgeous, stylish and had an oomph of her own. People predicted she was going to be a success just like Cheryl Ladd was two years prior.

Summer Girl 2

 
Shelley appeared in a spread for Cosmopolitan magazine called "Turquoise... for Summer Show-offs!" in June of 1978. She modeled the latest summer fashions in, what else, turquoise. The spread was a sort of promo for her latest film If Ever I See You Again. The pics were taken at the Southampton Princess Hotel in Bermuda by her former flame Steen Svensson.


In one pic, Shelley wore a super-sexy big, big top of cotton gauze with wide breezy sleeves and drawstrings on the top and bottom by Blousecraft. Again, her outfit showed off endlessly long gams.


In another pic, Shelley sported an elegant crumply gauze cardigan and harem pants by Monica Tilley for Elon. Shelley loked sensational.

Susan Maine

Shelley played Susan Maine in the 1987 cult classic The Stepfather. Her performance in the film received rave reviews and remains one of her most memorable to date. Let's hope Shelley decides to come out of retirement and give her fans another powerhouse performance.

Angel of Grace

Shelley became a Charlie's Angel in 1979. Her character Tiffany Welles was described as a sort of Grace Kelly-Lauren Bacall type of Angel, a very classy Angel. The evening gown she wore in her 1st episode (which she also wore in some pictorials) was patterned after Grace Kelly's 1955 Oscar gown. And she looked sensational in it.

A 1998 tabloid article about Charlie's Angels memorabilia collector Jack Condon

Shelley, along with her fellow Angels, appeared in a 1998 Star tabloid article about Charlie's Angels memorabilia collector Jack Condon. By then, Jack had been collecting everything Angels for the past 22 years and had amassed thousands of Angels memorabilia. And to boot, he had pictures with all the Angels. "Shelley Hack was down-to-earth and told great stories," according to Jack - who penned (along with David Hofstede) the book The Charlies Angels' Casebook two years later.

Dr.Gilbert and Connie Buford

Shelley starred with film veteran K Callan in the 1983 TV series Cutter to Houston. Shelley played Dr. Beth Gilbert, a surgeon, while Miss Callan played nurse Connie Buford. The series was short-lived but sweet.

The Baby Cables

Shelley appeared on the Bicentennial Edition of the Montgomery Ward catalog in the spring of 1976. She appeared throughout the catalog including the spread entitled "The Baby Cables." She modeled a casual outfit consisting of a cable knit, cuffed knit pants and a matching sweater. Shelley was lovely.

The Shy Star

When Shelley became a Charlie's Angel in 1979, reporters and the paparazzi hounded her. But Shelley was (and still is) a private person, so she would normally only talk about her work during interviews, and none about her private life.

Patterns Ad

Shelley appeared in many pattern packages during her tenure as a model. She also appeared in many ads promoting those patterns. In 1971, she appeared in an ad for McCalls Patterns. Wearing pattern Number 2938, 24-year-old Shelley looked like a young ingenue ready to conquer the world.

Helen Hayes Event

In February 1980, Shelley attended an event called The Love Boat' Honors Helen Hayes, the legendary stage actress. Held at the  Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills California, the event was attended by many of Hollywood's brightest stars including Shelley's co-Angels Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd. Shelley's escort was writer John Leone.

Shelley appeared in the 1983 Martin Scorsese film The King of Comedy. The movie has since been released on DVD (worldwide including Italy) and has received a very well-deserved acclaim. The film stars Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis and features critically-acclaimed performances from Sandra Bernhard and Shelley herself.

Jumpsuit Chic

In 1979, Shelley appeared in a Charlie perfume ad wearing the outfit of the moment,a jumpsuit. With permed hair and perfect makeup, Shelley strode her famous Charlie stride wearing a fab satin baby blue version of the trendy outfit. A shiny belt and a pair of shiny strappy sandals finished her fab look. Shelley was the epitome of glam.

Shelley and Alec

Shelley and Alec Baldwin starred in a medical series back in 1983. Entitled Cutter to Houston, the series was about doctors assigned to a small clinic in fictional Cutter, a town outside Houston, Texas. The series had a short run but has been replayed over the years. Let's hope it finally comes out on DVD.

One Piece Vest and Dress

Shelley appeared in the 1974 spring and summer issue of Sears catalog. In one section, she modeled a one-piece vest and dress in gray, white and red. With no accessories and with hair tied back, Shelley looked neat as a pin. But as you see, her smile alone conveyed how fab she looked for 1974 in her cute and girlish outfit. Shelley was just smashing.

Shelley in White

Shelley posed for many publicity pics in 1979 and 1980. In one, she wore the white silk suit she donned in the epilogue scene of "The Prince and the Angel," a Charlie's Angels episode. And she looked radiant in the pics.

Cutter Publicity Pic

from the 1983 TV series Cutter to Houston
 
Shelley starred in her second TV Series Cutter to Houston in 1983. She starred with two up-and-coming actors Jim Metzler and Alec Baldwin. Shelley was the "name" actor among the three having been in Charlie's Angels three years prior; while Jim Mezler had just received glowing reviews for his performance in the 1982 film Tex and Alec Baldwin had just jumped to prime time TV from the daytime soap opera The Doctors (where he starred from 1980 to 1982.) Although the series had good scripts, it received mixed reviews and was unfortunately canceled after just seven episodes with two episodes left un-aired. Subsequent replays of the series aired all nine episodes intact though.
