The slender figure of UK 1960’s model Helena Clayton by Harrison Marks taken kneeling on a bed in his flat. This also seems to be a still taken at the same time as he produced the 1968 glamour film E.27 ‘1 & 2 Make Three’ featuring Helena, Jenny Lane and Shelia Bancroft. As well as appearing in this film for GHM Helena went on to appear in several other softcore films during the 1960’s in America, as well as pose for US Photographer Edmund Leja.
If I’m honest not the most attractive of the later models GHM used and not sure if he used her again, but at least another model identified. A big Thanks must go to member MadMax who provided a copy of the film, which helped me identify Helena 🙂
A beautifully cheeky smile from a naked Gerry Brown posing at Norlond Astoria Studio’s, Finsbury Park on 3rd May 1968. This shot is one of 5 from an original 35mm black and white negative strip recently added to my collection and shows Gerry with short curly hair for a change.
A great pose from Gerry showing of her 39″ bust, curvy figure and a hint of hairy pussy with her vital statistics being recorded as 39/24/37 and what a smile!
Revisiting one of GHM’s one name models, Zigrinda from page 2 of Kamera No.87 (1968), but this version is from the actual medium format negative that I have in my collection. She only appeared for GHM in Kamera No.87 and the glamour film ‘Zigrinda, Britain’s Top Stripper’. I originally posted a scan from the Kamera magazine of this shot here, but this shot is much much clearer, although it doesn’t improve the dodgy hat 🙂
A beautiful shot of the model known only as Vicky by Harrison Marks. Taken in the grounds of Ewhurst Manor this shot of Vicky shows off her wonderful naked body and that perfect triangle of hair below. Most of the images of Vicky were published in the last few editions of Kamera with similar shots to this appearing in Kamera No.87 (1968) with most having Vicky posing in the garden and grounds of Ewhurst. I’d certain fire off my cannon if I came across this view of Vicky 🙂
The Jimi Hendrix Album ‘Electric Ladyland’ is 50 years old this year and one of it’s controversial and banned covers back then featured a bevvy of naked beauties posing on a black background. Several years ago I got asked if I could identify any of the models and back then my knowledge was lacking, but now I’ve been asked again and on revisiting the cover I realize that I can now name several of the models and recognize several more.
Back then the cover photographer, David Montgomery, said he found the girls in The Speakeasy nightclub in London, which may be true. But I know those I’ve identified were also well known glamour models appearing in many of the magazines back then and worked for the likes of Harrison Marks and Russell Gay. I’ve numbered the models I can now identify and the list is below, plus a few I recognize and have images of but have no name.
The two blondes front left also look familiar, but can’t put a name to the lovely faces. Anyone recognize any other models?
One of the models named Reine Sutcliffe was interviewed in Melody Maker in 1968. “It makes us look like a load of old tarts. It’s rotten. Everyone looked great, but the picture made us look old and tired. We were trying to look too sexy, but it didn’t work out.”
Thanks to Les for contacting me and asking to look at it again 🙂
Another unknown model photographed by Harrison Marks that I thought I’d already posted but hadn’t! This model appears late in the Kamera run with her only appearing in the penultimate and final editions Kamera No.88 & No.89 (1968). This shot is from a number of negatives I have of her, but was also published in Kamera No.88 P20, but in a slightly retouched version. As you can see in this shot there is just a bit too much on show for publication back then, although they seem to have removed everything including the stubble in the printed version 🙂
Another model that always seemed to wear a wig when posing and I have this model down as Unknown Model No.38 in my list of unknown models
Update: I found her! This is actually 1960’s UK model Carol Marsden, so I’ll update everything and she’s no longer unknown 🙂
Zigrinda by Harrison Marks. She only appeared in Kamera No.87 (1968) and the glamour film ‘Zigrinda, Britain’s Top Stripper’. The three images from No.87 are all from the same set of her wearing the white hat and black push up bra, but as far as I’m aware this shot from my collection never got published?
Anna Verdi posing on the Casbah set for Harrison Marks and showing off her fabulous figure and full bush! Anna seems to have gone from a smooth mound back to full on bush in her career and in this shot she seems to be back to the full bush look 😉
