This isn’t actually a new image of June as I published this image back in July 2013, but this is a much better quality image and comes from a new source that also provided some background to the shot. Another John (I’ll call him JAS!) and another huge fan of June that has his own enviable collection of June memorabilia. JAS has acquired his collection over the years from different sources, including June herself and also had the good fortune to have met and photographed June as well.
This particular shot was taken and submitted for the 1959 Miss TV Times competition and according to JAS the entry form signed by June is glued to the back of this image. I loved this shot when I first published it, but it’s even better when you have the background to a shot. For completeness I’ve asked if JAS will scan the back so we can see the entry form, so hopefully I’ll be able to add that in due course.
A big thank you to JAS for sending this through along with the background and I look forward to seeing more of his June collection 🙂
Update: Thanks to JAS I’ve now included the hand written entry form from the back of the image below.
Another shot of a young June from the pages of Connoisseurs Choice and Modelling Review, this time from Vol.5 No.3 (1957). Here we get a side on view of June as she leans against an artists easel, with another artistic nude painting attached.
June posing on the set of the ‘Danger Girl’ produced by Arthur Howell and Strobe Films. This is the contraption that in the film June was strapped to naked as the saw got closer to her head, before she overpowered her abductor and threw him on the same saw! A great shot of June posing on set and another great view of her rear. I’m not sure that saw looks like it will cut anything strong than paper, but who’s looking at the saw anyway!

So you don’t have to go and find a thesaurus the title refers to June’s great bum and ‘Callipygian’ means having outstandingly attractive, deliciously well-shaped buttocks. So you can’t disagree with the title looking at these two shots of her from behind. Both shots come from the late 1950’s publication Connoisseurs Choice and Modelling Review Vol.6 No.3
June posing in the bath on the Roman Set as a ‘Dream Goddess’ or Cleopatra? This is a still from the Harrison Marks glamour film ‘Dream Goddess’. This image of her on the set along with others appears in the Kamera Special dedicated to June titled ‘The Fabulous June Palmer’ (1964), with the accompanying film also being released in 1964/65.
