June Palmer – Star Strip (Video)

 
It must be time for another Harrison Marks Film from the his Kamera Cine Film collection. This time it’s Kamera Cine Film No. 48 ‘Star Strip’ (1964) featuring none other than June Palmer and Stuart Samuels. The story behind this film is simple, it features June preparing backstage in very little to go on stage and perform a striptease, with Samuels thrown in for a bit of light entertainment.

This film is one of the more common films by GHM that you can find out on the internet, but what is different about this version is it’s the 16mm version of the film and not the standard 8mm version. That means the quality of the film is much better and that comes across in this digital conversion, plus it’s the full end to end film including beginning and end titles, which seem to get missed off on other versions I’ve seen out there.

A big thank you to John W, who not only sent me this copy, but took the time to get the film converted to digital and added the appropriate music to the film, as originally it was silent, not that June stripping needed any accompaniment!

You may also want to go into the settings on the video to change the quality up to 720p or 1080p to see the real quality of this version, as the default seems to set it doen at 480p!

June Palmer – Original ‘Brides in the Bath’ 16mm Film Scan

A scan of an original piece of the colour 16mm film ‘Calamity June’. 

This was from a reel of pieces of offcuts and out-takes from Arthur Howell, provided to a contact of mine John.  John pulled together the pieces and produced the version of ‘Brides in the Bath’ currently showing on this site.
This piece of negative is towards the end of the film where George is trying to kill off his third wife (June Palmer), but she fights back!

June in the Bath (Video Clip)

After posting a recent video clip of June Palmer the Newlywed, John W was kind enough to send me his full version of ‘Brides in the Bath’, which runs to nearly an hour long!  Anyway I’m currently working out a way to get the whole thing hosted so I can publish it.

In the meantime as a test a little clip from it, with June taking a bath (contains some nudity if easily offended!)

Usual disclaimer applies – If you wish to share this clip, then please ask or link back to this original, otherwise it will be removed!  

June Palmer – Original ‘Calamity June’ 16mm Film Scan

And now for something completely different and original!  A scan of an original piece of the colour 16mm film ‘Calamity June’. 

The first thing I noticed was it was in colour, as the copy of ‘Calamity June’ I have is black and white!  This was from a reel of offcuts and out-takes from Arthur Howell, provided to a contact of mine John*, who had hoped there would be enough to make his own version of the film, but sadly there wasn’t. At least there are some nice stills to share.
 
Arthur told John he had sold the 16mm colour originals of his films to George Harrison Marks, so who knows where they are today, but a 16mm copy, surfaced on Australian eBay a few years ago and went for about £5000!

June Palmer The Newlywed (Video Clip)

Another great little find over on YouTube from John W  The Clip is of June Palmer in a short extract from the never finished epic “Brides in the Bath”, shot by June’s then husband Arthur Howell.
Summary: George finds that being married to Margaret is not what he thought it would be as he has several attempts at getting amorous with Margaret, all ending in failure!  In a brilliant piece of casting June plays the dowdy middle-aged spinster Margaret Elizabeth Lofty, who remains clothed (Just!) throughout despite George ‘s best efforts!

As John on his summary says – I think Palmerphiles round the world would like this clip, which has never been seen since it was shot, I think in 1971.
