I mentioned a few weeks back that Colin from Cine Films 2 DVD was sending some glamour films from GHM and I posted the Rusty Gaynor film that he converted and sent. Well since then I’ve decided to expand my collection and start buying and collecting a few 8mm and 16mm glamour films by Harrison Marks and others.
My first experiment in this was I came across a couple of 400ft 8mm films on eBay featuring 4 GHM films. The first reel featured Maid to Satisfy and Amorous Masseur, the second reel included The Casting Couch and Cous-Cous. The second reel of film jumped out at me because it features two films with two of my favourite models, Angela Duncan in The Casting Couch and obviously Sylvia Bayo in Cous-Cous. So I took a risk and bid on the films and won them and they quickly turned up and to my untrained eye looked to be OK, but you never can tell with old 8mm films as to what the quality is like or even if they are the actual films!
So now it was time to use Colin and his service to convert the films to digital, so off they were sent last week and I awaited in anticipation. Well the files arrived in my inbox yesterday and thankfully they were the films advertised and they were complete, phew! As to the conversion, well I’m happy with the files considering I’ve not seen digital versions of these available anywhere else. For old films over 50 years old they were dirty and did have marks and lines appearing during the conversion, but to be honest the quality of the films is still very good and at a good size conversion rate, allowing me to make smaller versions for online.
So now I have a digital copies of Maid to Satisfy, Amorous Masseur, The Casting Couch and Cous-Cous 🙂 I still need to convert them for the site, but looking through the films I do love Cous-Cous and captured a few screen shots directly from the file to tease you with. It of course features Sylvia Bayo, but also includes Tara Lynn, Sue Roberts, Jenny Lane (short hair) and Virginia Jones. So look out as Cous-Cous is coming!
Finally a big thank you to Colin for the conversions and I would highly recommend his service if you need your own cine films converting. Now I just need to decide what to do with the original films as I no longer need them with digital copies, maybe resell them to fund some more film purchases!
Another glamour film from the early days of Harrison Marks, under Kamera Cine Films No.38 titled ‘Rusty Gaynor’ (1963), no prizes for guessing who starred in this one! A simple story really, Rusty looks bored and lonely, so puts some music on and does a strip for us 🙂
*This film is copyright George Harrison Marks Enterprises Limited
Why another film so soon after the last one? Well I’m feeling generous and letting everyone see this one not just members, plus I have a new contact that converts old cine films into DVD’s and this is one that he sent me.
Thanks to Colin from Cine Films 2 DVD for sending this and over 30 other vintage glamour films, including a few of the harder stuff as well. These also included a few rare Wanda Liddell films I’ve never seen before, some more GHM films and Peta Gareth in a fully uncensored porn film! I’ll keep that till later and maybe let members see it. Anyway the quality of the conversions is fantastic considering the age of the films and you can find a link to Colin’s site on the right hand menu. Plus any Kamera Club member will get a special 10% discount on all conversions, just let him know you came from here. So a big thank you to Colin for this and all the other films he kindly sent over 🙂
Another vintage pamphlet from the late 1960’s advertising another set of 8mm colour films by Harrison Marks. These feature some of his later models in all their glory, including 3 featuring Cleo Simmons who also features on the front of the pamphlet. Other models include favourite Anna Verdi and Jutka ‘nipples’ Goz 🙂
A big thank you must go to Dave over at Rambooks, who scanned and sent this over along with some other great catalogue copies I’ve still to edit.
I love finding memorabilla connected to Harrison Marks and others, be it postcards, prints, magazine articles and catalogues. In this case it’s a 4 page leaflet advertising four Kamera Cine Films under the heading Favourites of the Pharaohs, featuring 6 models, although I’ve counted more! From top left going clockwise the films and models are:
Episode 1, No.77 – The Bath, featuring Tina McGowan and Danielle Denise
Episode 2, No.78 – The Dance, featuring Danielle Denise, Penny Winters and Laya
Episode 3, No.79 – The Slave Market, featuring Hyldagarde (Hilde Beck)
Episode 4, No.80 – The Mummy, featuring Teri Martine and Tina McGowan
The special offer of an exclusive colour film of Sanda is of course Sandra Cassano and hat a fabulous colour leaflet to add to my growing collection of vintage catalogues.
A big thank you must go to Dave over at Rambooks, who scanned and sent this over along with some other great catalogue copies I’ve still to edit, but I couldn’t resist this one! If your looking for a huge catalogue of vintage magazines and other memorabilia go give them a look 🙂
Thanks to member JAS, who sent through these brilliant shots of June Palmer from the 8mm cine film of ‘Calamity June’. This was by Arthur Howell under the Strobe Films banner and was Strobe Films No.1 and these shots were 90mm square still prints made by Strobe back in the 1960’s to publicise the film. A fabulous set of 6 prints (members see all) of June posing at the saloon bar, slowly losing parts of her flimsy cowgirl outfit! JAS has around 25 of these 90mm square prints from Calamity June, Danger Girl and June in Orbit. of which I have the Danger Girl set to also publish 🙂
Something slightly different now with the front and rear cover image from the box of the 8mm adult film ‘Die Lollos’ by Harrison Marks. This adult loop film (Insiders Film No.47) was from the mid 1970’s and featured the unforgettable Clyda Rosen in all her bushy hardcore glory!
As mentioned in previous Clyda posts I have a digitized copy of Die Lollos, in which Clyda attempts to smuggle pornography through British customs. In the softcore version (Unaccustomed As I Am), Clyda is stopped and strip searched by a male customs officer, but in this hardcore version the customs officer is female (Jacqui Rigby), who gives Clyda a thorough strip search and examination with Clyda returning the favour!
Sorry couldn’t resist a bit of Clyda!
Thanks to JAS, who sent through this brilliant scan of June from the box image of the 8mm cine film of ‘Calamity June’. This was by Arthur Howell under the Strobe Films banner and was Strobe Films No.1 and the colour 8mm version. JAS also sent through a complete scan of the box as well, but it needs some tidying up, so will post that later, but I wanted to share the image now. A superb shot of Junr in cowboy hat and gun holster, but be careful you don’t shoot too soon 😉
I had a very nice surprise in the post over Easter from John W in the form of a DVD containing a selection of June Palmer films. John recently had these converted onto DVD from the original 8mm/16mm Cine Films by Rutland Productions
, whom have done an excellent job! I now have a copy of all the June glamour films listed on her Filmography page
, apart from Beauty in the Barn Part 2, which John is missing as well funnily enough!
Anyway, the first of these films also looks to possible be one of the oldest and titled ‘Fabulous Jane’ for some reason. The introduction shows it was produced by ‘Stag’ productions and was film No.111. It’s only a short film at just over 3 minutes, but features a young June on a chaise lounge stripping off and then redressing in stockings, suspender belt etc. before stripping off again! As with all Cine films there was no sound, but John has kindly provided his own music to them all including this one, but the choice is excellent and all in keeping with the film and period it was made.
So onto the film … enjoy!
