We were revisiting a 44-year-old issue of People in which the magazine chronicled the most intriguing people of 1976. The list was fascinating, especially compared to the celebrity weeklies of today. Let's take a look at all 25 people. Some are familiar faces, while others had their 15 minutes of fame expire by the time Carter was sworn into office. Some were movie stars, while another eventually had a Tom Cruise movie made of his life. We've included a blurb from the magazine for each.
