June Palmer – Worth Every Penny!

A two page advert from a photographic magazine in 1959 (title unknown) offering the delightful services of a young June Palmer. I do like a bit of memorabilia of June and there were a couple of lines that made me chuckle in this advert, ‘A Very Good Model Indeed’  is very understated and I love the old style telephone number that uses words and numbers. I also like the fee per hour of £1 10 6, which works out in today’s prices as about £85 an hour. For an hour photographing June cheap at half the price and worth every penny. I know others have photographed June at various times throughout her career including John, so I’m curious what did they pay for the privilege of shooting June?

The Secrets of Black Castle

I found this in a copy of Dazzling Dolls magazine amongst the naked beauties!  An advert for the 8mm films of Black Castle Part 1 & 2, A Hard Night, Impetuous and Beatnics.  I’m not sure if these are HM films, as I don’t recognise the film titles, but I sure do recognise the models in the advert and the dungeon set that appears in many HM photo’s and films. 

In no particular order some of the models are June Palmer, Virginia Green, Rita Landre, Lorraine BurnettRona Scott & Paula Page.  Anyone seen these films?

Here She Comes – HM Glamour Advert Featuring Pamela Green

I was recently fortunate enough to acquire a copy of Fiesta Spring Special 1957 magazineOn flicking through the pages I was pleased to see several photo sets by HM and this fascinating advert on the back pages.

As you can see it features Pamela Green, but also offers the reader ‘A new series of figure and pin-up studies.  Photographed in revolutionary 3D giving 100% added depth and brilliance’  I’m not sure I’ve come across any such photo’s but would love to see some if anyone has copies?  Anyway still a fascinating insight into a magazine and adverts from over 50 years ago!
