Mini Skirt Monday #17: Anitra Ford

Anitra Ford began as a model during the sixties, but her heyday was definitely as a “Barker Beauty” on the Price Is Right from 1972-1976. During this time she appeared in numerous TV shows including Baretta, Starsky & Hutch, and Wonder Woman. She also had a small role in The Longest Yard, and was featured in numerous B movies of the period.

Anitra’s fame dried up by the end of the seventies. She moved on to real estate in Santa Barabara. She is also a published poet…. which seems only natural, because to kids of the 70’s, Anitra was poetry in motion.

  1. She makes even those hideous mustard-colored items seem like something I want to bid on!

  2. That black skirt is way too short! Looks inadequate to cover her fanny.

  7. I always felt THE PRICE IS RIGHT jumped the shark when Anitra Ford left. Well, not really but all those blondes and redheads that followed were never as lovely as she.
