Catherine Bach, a 1954 Cleveland native, made her professional debut in The Sound of Music as one of the children. A murder mystery starring Burt Lancaster, shot south of the border in 1973, was her first screen appearance. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot followed in 1974 as Melody.

Among Catherine Bach’s most notable television roles as Daisy Duke in The Dukes of Hazzard. She had $1,000,000.00 worth of insurance on her legs while starring on the series. Her figurehead appeared on the schooner Californian in 1985.

As Bach’s career waned, he had roles in notoriety-free films. African Skies was a Canadian drama series she starred in from 1992 to 1994. She began appearing in recurring roles on The Young and the Restless, a CBS daytime soap opera, in 2012.

Check out these gorgeous old photos of Catherine Bach to see her young and beautiful in the 1970s.

At one time her legs were insured for $1,000,000

Her husband told her about the audition for The Dukes of Hazzard. Despite not looking like what they were looking for, she was hired on the spot by the producers.

Catherine Bach producers had originally suggested a tight white turtleneck, go-go boots and a poodle skirt, but Bach asked if she could wear an outfit that she created, including a homemade T-shirt, unravelled denim shorts and high heels. Initially, Bach questioned whether the cut-off shorts were appropriate in a restaurant setting.

Upon visiting an adjacent restaurant to visit the waitresses, Bach found that they matched the tablecloths!

As a special promotional item, Bach posed as Daisy Duke at the producer’s suggestion, which sold five million copies. Bach once brought this poster to the White House when she visited a former teacher there who was then employed there.

She was the model for the schooner Californian’s figurehead in 1985.

In 1976, Catherine Bach married David Shaw (son of Angela Lansbury). The couple divorced in 1981. In August 1990, Bach married entertainment lawyer Peter Lopez.

Sophia and Laura were their daughters. Lopez, 60, was found shot dead – an apparent suicide – on April 30, 2010.
