Obscurity factor: 9
Who knew Shirley MacLaine had a television series in the 70's? Well, I'm sure some of you did, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that out. She plays Shirley Logan, a photo journalist who travels the globe to come up with great images for World Illustrated magazine. Each week Shirley travels to some exotic locale (locations were genuine and they shot all over Europe and Asia) and gets involved in some world event, from jewel thefts to the circus. The series only lasted one season and is a bit uneven, but is worth a look, if only for her vibrant personality.

This series is fairly recently available on DVD, though the release was in the UK, so it only plays on region free DVD players. No full episodes are available online that I can find.
