DALLAS star Linda Gray has great legs. And knows how to use them.

File this one under the useless-trivia-that-will-impress-your-friends category:

DALLAS star Linda Gray dropped a bombshell on Tuesday's Anderson Live, confessing that it was her leg -- and not The Graduate star Anne Bancroft's -- that was used on the poster for the 1967 movie.

The classic movie image shows Dustin Hoffman watching a woman put on a pair of hose, but all you can see of her is one leg, along with a hand and part of an arm. Most people have assumed the woman to be Bancroft.

"I think (Bancroft) was absent that day," quipped Gray, who started out working as a model before turning to acting. "I got paid $25. For one leg, that was good."
