1950’s Carnival Cheesecake!

A stunning vintage beauty from the Carnival Annual P22 (1956) and shot by West End Photo’s, but model and photographer unknown. I just love the classic 1950’s hairstyle combined with the red lipstick, fishnet stockings and low cut bra giving us just a hint of nipple. A classic vintage glamour or cheesecake beauty, although I think the red lipstick has been ever so slightly enhanced in this shot.

The term cheesecake seems to have derived from a genre of glamour photography and poster art made popular in wartime pin-ups of the 1940’s, often featuring modest poses by movie starlets displaying lots of leg but little explicit nudity. So called because of the resemblance of a stocking-clad female thigh to the layers of a cheesecake dessert. I think this shot fits that genre perfectly.

Incidentally, this was the first ever magazine I physically purchased and scanned 🙂

Join The Dream-In!

A great two page advert for the 1967 film ‘The Naked World of Harrison Marks’ featuring the man himself plus a bevy of glamour beauties that appeared in the film.

For those interested the models appearing in this advert are Pamela Green on page 1, June Palmer on page 2 bottom left, Christine Carter and Julie Jordan on page 2 bottom left. The models appearing with GHM on page 2 top are from right to left, Ann Walker, Ann Wilson, Marina Jones, Deborah de Lacey, Vera Novak and 2 at the end I recognize, but forget names at present 🙂

Pamela & Marie – Opposite Views (1958)

Pamela Green and Marie Deveraux posing amongst the dunes in 1958 from Kamera on Location P61. What is quite interesting is that the two of them appear to have opposite coloured wigs on from their normal hair! Marie with a blonde wig when she was dark at this time, and Pam with a dark wig when she was blonde, plus the addition of the mandatory scarf!
