An original image from a negative of Barbara Halks and Nicky Stevens on the set of the Harrison Marks glamour film ‘Sitting Pretty’. The film itself was a standard 8mm film in black and white by Harrison Marks, numbered No.E.9 – Sitting Pretty (1967), but I have no idea what the film actually entails! I do have a copy of the box cover (below) featuring the two girls, but the shot I have is a little more revealing from Barbara’s point of view! I’d say nice ‘pussy’ but that seems quite topical at present, so will just say we get to see Barbara in all her natural glory! I have a few more negatives from this film, but unfortunately none showing anything more of Nicky, who seems to stop just short of showing anything down below!
A bubbly Britt Hampshire posing in the sunken bath from Kamera No.80 P28 (1967). I do love a good reflection shot using mirrors and this shot of Britt by Harrison Marks is very well done. Not only are the bubbles strategically placed to hide anything, but if you look at her reflection there is a very well placed knob/tap covering her modesty.
Louise Worth sat posing on a four poster bed from Kamera No.80 P31 (1967) by Harrison Marks. I thought the four poster bed was a set, but I’m not so sure it wasn’t a bedroom at Ewhurst Manor, as it seems to appear in other shoots?
Bobby Shaw (Laurie Sands aka Julie Desmond) posing for Harrison Marks kneeling on a sheepskin rug in front of that bizarre background. Ever time I see it I’m reminded of the yellow brick road for some reason! Fabulous shot of Bobby showing off her lush bush and from the same set as this shot. Thanks as always to Kevin for this shot of Bobby from an original negative 🙂
In between new posts and editing images I’m also trying to do updates to the current site content and one area I’m updating is the model profiles I’ve published. I’m currently working through Dawn’s profile, adding more images, adding a small database of magazine appearances, plus I’ll be updating her magazine cover appearances with better images, where I have them. One area that I was missing good covers was her early Beautiful Britons, Spick & Span appearances. In fact I have very little content of her from those appearances overall!
Thankfully that is about to change thanks to the generous support of Jonathan over at Vintage Fetish, who has kindly provided me with images of nearly all Dawn’s cover appearances for Town and Country Publications (ToCo). The above cover is the first good example of Dawn from Spick & Span Extra (Summer 1967), which like most of the covers from that early period has a certain painted effect to it, rather than a simple photo. A stunning cover of Dawn posing in an armchair with her hair in a plat, which I’ve never seen before!
Again, thanks to Jonathan for the covers and do go take a look at his site, as it’s my go to site for all Toco related publications and a great source for identifying unknown UK models.
