These are some of the most famous faces in the Bay Area. But can you recognize them from their phone book photos?

One of the most surprising people on the list is Barbara Eden, who catapulted to world fame when she took on the lead role in “I Dream of Jeannie”. Eden, who was called Barbara Huffman when she was little, grew up in San Francisco with her mother and stepfather. Very early on, she expressed an interest in the scene. As a teenager, she studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music while attending Lincoln High.

According to Lincoln’s 1949 yearbook, Eden was known to her friends as “Huffie” and she listed music as one of her “likes”. Two years later, Eden wins the title of Miss San Francisco. By the mid-1950s, she had become a regular at Johnny Carson and appeared in episodes of many of the best TV shows of the era, from “I Love Lucy” to “Rawhide”. In 1965, she was approached for a role in a new show about a genius named Jeannie. Five years and over 100 episodes later, Eden would be a name known as the most famous television genius of all time.

Eden still makes regular television appearances and now lives in Beverly Hills.
