Sissi Mississippi posing in the bath by Harrison Marks from a scan of an original negative.
Sissi, an Italian striptease artiste arrived in London in May 1968 and the only photos of her that made it into Kamera were in an advert that appears on the inside back page of issue No.88. However, Harrison Marks did four still shoots with her which were featured in the final edition of Solo, No.61.
GHM also made three 8mm glamour films with Sissi, the first an offbeat production called ‘The Lash’ (No.E22) filmed on a variation of the Pattern of Evil dungeon set and co-starring Danielle Denese (credited on the film box as Dania Danelle) as a fellow prisoner in a girl fight sequence over a crust of bread. The other two films star Sissi alone, one entitled simply ‘Sissi Mississippi’ (No.E23) in which she does her striptease routine, and the other, No.E26, ‘Bubbles & Beauty’, which was filmed in the bathroom and with Sissi in the bath at HM’s flat and the above shot is obviously a still from that production.
A fabulous bubbly shot of Sissi in the bath and even all those bubbles couldn’t hide her dark thick luscious bush!
