Raquel Welch made her mark in movies as the strong female character rather than the submissive female lead typical in many movies of the day; inevitable, then, that Helmut Newton would photograph this powerful actress who exuded strength. Achieving stardom with 1m years BC, in which she had only 3 lines, she has been voted among the world's sexiest woman by several publications over the years.
In this photograph, taken in her Beverly Hills garden, she stares menacingly down at the doberman in a role reversal. The dog seems to be submissive before her yet focussed on her crotch as if waiting, begging for an invitation.
