Liza Martelle

Liza Martelle (Dawn Grayson) – We know GHM had a propensity to give his models aliases when they modelled in wigs, such as Rita Landre (Pam Green) and Mary Stephan (Caroline Coon). What I didn’t know is that Dawn Grayson had one as well when modelling in the blonde wig above! Apparently she was known as Liza Martelle, a beautiful strip artist from the crazy horse in Paris.

GHM revealed this in an interview for Fiesta magazine in 1976 called ‘ Harrison Marks Rides Again!’.  He also said that she was in London for an appearance and due to his sheer charm and youthful sex appeal he was lucky enough to get her before his camera … and other places! 

Well I never! That’s the first time I have come across Liza Martelle and a photo similar to the one above appears with those comments.  So, unless there is another Liza Martelle or the photo was wrong, then it’s Dawn Grayson 🙂

  1. I think the wig actually suits Dawn, something that is not always the case. Mind you, Dawn would look good in miners&#39; helmet complete with lamp.<br /><br />David
